Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stellar! My new go-to crampons. With the security for solo laps on the Great White Icicle and the precision for mixed routes in Ouray, these mono-points are rock solid. And, the replaceable front point means that I'll be climbing on these for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent on Ice and Rock I purchased these for climbing steeper ice and with the hope giving mixed climbing a shot. I have found these crampons to be excellent for both! Before these I climbed ice on BD Sabretooths, which themselves are amazing, but the stingers just feel so good and secure on steep ice. I trust my foot placements on all ice with these on my boots. Chandelier, bullet, pocketed, even wet slushy ice. I was somewhat hesitant to go mono points instead a dual/mono like the cyborgs, fearing that in soft ice they would slice out. I have yet to experience that problem, and I'm still out hunting for ice in mid April. The large/aggressive secondary points add a lot of security and balance when engaged. Be a surgeon, not a lumber jack when you are climbing ice. Stingers are perfect. Only thing to watch out for is the toe bails. Stingers come with the larger size bails, which I have discovered don't fit my Scarpa Mont Blancs or LS Nepals very well. So make sure to order some small ones too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Mixed and Steep Ice Crampon I love these crampons for ice and mixed climbing. The are light, sharp and technical. The only reason I am rating them with four stars is because the toe bails don't fit well on my boots (but that is universal for all the BD toe bails on my boots). I have never seen this to be a problem on boots larger than a woman's 7.5 or so. I would highly suggest them despite that and even if you have small feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever This is the best crampon I have ever had. It fits the front of my boots perfectly, providing zero wiggle room in the bail. I feel the crampon helps to make my footwork even more precise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the lot These are the best crampons BD makes, which means they are the best out there. I used to use mono points, but they went out of favor. I was glad to see them back. They climb awesome on steep ice and are awesome in mixed terrain. The steel is holds its sharpness for a long, long time. These are my choice for all technical climbing from ice up Hyalite to the Karakorum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Crampon for Steep Ice This is the best crampon for steep ice i've ever used. I've had Cyborgs and Sabertooths and Givel Rambo 2s... the Stinger is hands down the best. A no frills, basic semi rigid design cuts down on weight but not function. It's confidence inspiring to look down and kick knowing they're going to stick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This crampon significantly improved my climbing! After climbing with dual point crampons for many years, I must say that the Black Diamond Stinger Crampon has completely changed my perception of what is possible in climbing ice! These crampons are lightweight, precise, and make me feel like a superhero!...or maybe I've just had a breakthrough in climbing ice??? Regardless, if you try them, you will be psyched!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good when new I really liked these when they were new but they are wearing out too fast. The stainless steel is nice but a bit too soft to hold up to mixed climbing. After one season of use they are worn as much as my Petzl Darts had worn after 5 years. Also the front point needs to be refined for better penetration and less ice displacement in hard ice. TIpping the front point up about 2 degrees and reducing the point profile height would help. The teeth on the bottom side of the front point are basically just nubs and do very little to hold on the ice (take a look at Petzl Darts, Grivel G20, or Camp Blade Runner front points). I've taken a file to my front points and reshaped them resulting in a much better performance penetrating and holding in hard ice. I also had an issue with the aluminum inserts on the heel levers wearing out but BD replaced them under warranty. Overall these are good crampons and climb ice well but they lack in hard ice performance and durability. With some refinements they could be great crampons. I would ditch the stainless steel and opt for something harder and redesign the front point.
