You buy aluminum crampons for the lightweight, not their ability to climb M9. The Ultralights are perfect for what they were designed for. The are lightweight in your pack when not in use, and they fit on just about any shoe when it's time to cross that dicey snow slope. I've worn them extensively on approach shoes and these crampons give you all the security you could need. There are other aluminum crampons out there that might weigh a tad less, but most of those do not have full length points. The Stubai's are for legit alpine situations.
The binding clip could have been better designed (even simple d-rings would be better), but with a sensible routing of the slack, the crampons stay tight.
Camp AL crampons (haven't tried them, but they look interesting... although points look shorter)

relatively light weight for crampons with front points. Universal Bindings are good because they will fit almost any footwear.
Universal binding system fits almost any shoe/boot, but not perfectly. When you flex your foot, the binding loosens.
katoola steel crampons - the binding looks better for flexible shoes.

Will fit almost any shoe or boot - not perfectly but well enough. Light and quick to put on. I use them for crossing snow fields on approach, etc. With stiff boots they would be fine for moderate alpine climbing.
Alloy wears away faster than steel. The buckle looks suspicious but I haven't had any trouble with it yet.

Work great for the moderate snow climbing I've done. Weight wise, I can't even tell they're there. They fit my DC snowboard boots great and I havne't had any problems with them coming loose or coming off.
This is really a non-issue, but the strap is really long. I wasn't really happy with wrapping it around my boot an extra time, but not doing that left a lot of strap to deal with.
These are the first crampons I've used, so nothing to compare to.
