Hi Jaylin, The new laser speed light screws are all UIAA certified to hold a fall. The strength of ice screw is too dependent on the placement and quality of the ice so the actual difference in strength of the metal will make little difference in real life scenarios. All we can say is that the new screws are just as safe as the steel versions in similar placements. Hope that helps, Dave
