I have a quite an experience with both Hakka 1's and one step older version Hakkapeliitta 10's. 1's are a little bit more sophisticated version from 10's and suited for tightened regulations of finnish traffig laws, eg. spikes and shorter and fewer.
10's are better with grip, as mentioned noisier as well, but when mileage is critical among the ultimate snow and ice grip Michelin 260 with full-steel spikes is absolutely the best solution even outperfoming the new Ivalo tyre. Tires like Blizzaks and everything without spikes are a quite compromize due to grip on snow and ice - comfortable yes but not for sporty driving.
By the way you can get both Hakka 1's and Michelin 260 with 'H' speed rating.
