Here they are...many years in the making.

I like to call them "ATC's"...just cuz I think it sounds cool and I am a nerd.

Weight: 5.25 oz each.

Everything you need to know about them is in the link.

Very impressive. I like the colors -- it looks like traditional color case hardened steel...

Very cool! I am glad we don't get much snow down in Mississippi because I would want a pair of those.

Glad you guys like them. I have to admit, they worked out better than I had thought so I am pretty excited to give them a good try.

Jerry - Not for sale. Sorry man. Just one prototype set for me. Will I sell them in the future? Maybe, when i get all the kinks worked out. But it ain't cheap making this stuff and I can already imagine the price tag!

Robert - A few places offer waterjet cutting services in the area, of course I don't think it is a secret that I have a shop with a bunch of toys in it :). If you need stuff cut, let me know, not a problem, I've helped out a bunch of guys on the forum in the past. It isn't too cheap though, still have to pay for an operator and for machine time.

Argon welding must be pricy, no?

Your myog is on another level!

I've been tinkering with a similar solution myself and my dislike for my heavy pons. Though been looking at technical pons not hiker pons.

In your initial trials have you had snow balling problems on your heels?

If so, would it be better to have said rear downward facing rear of the pon heel placed on the top? It would seem to me that said rear pon would be just as strong with the rear "rand" on the top instead of the bottom and the pon wouldn't have a "bucket" for snow to stick in.

Likewise is there snow balling with the downward facing pons on the front? Shouldn't those Really be on the heel for going downhill? When using them going downhill how is the difference between this setup and "standard" pons?

Glad to see someone got something done!

Thanks for the encouragement!
