The Flash were my first shoe and I use them outdoors when I dont wanna wear my Galileo's. I love how they feel on the wall but prefer the fit of 5.10's and I like the new Onyx Rubber better. Plus I hear from a bunch of people that once the thick outside of the dual layer wears away the shoes are junk.

I've got a pair of the Phoenix and have to say that for the $$ they are surprisingly nice. I've climbed in them quite a bit for well over a year and can't really say anything bad about them in terms of durability. I've resoled them three times and they are still holding up fine (although the ribbed heel cup, which I don't care for, is starting to get chewed up a bit).

Mad Rock's durability is pretty good, but if ur a noob and your footwork sucks (or is bad) the rubber will wear out quickly.

Rubber is the best you can buy.

i truly beg to differ...in the last year i have gone through 3 pairs of madrocks....and i am not a noob with bad foot work....It might be due to the fact that i climb on really sharp granite, and use them all the time training indoors...but i fins that they do not smear well, can't jam a crack to save its own life, and the rubber tears very easily...i have not climbed in the sharks, just the Frenzie and the phenoix...buy hey that is just my humble opinion

I had a pair of Mad Rocks once, I hated them. They fell apart really quick and weren't as good as my 5.10's. I'll never buy a pair of Mad Rocks again. Ever. But I hear that there's a lot of people who like them... right?



hosh.

Mad Rocks, rock. Plain and simple. The rubber is definetly one of the stickiest I've ever worn. Resole kits are cheap(Hint hint, they don't last too long.) and you can put them on easily. I do reccomend La Sportivas for your next shoe though =). Farewell, God Bless. ~Tragic

Mad rock shoes are korean, five ten knockoffs. I have the Flash's they are a POS. The owner of Madrock used to work for Five Ten and they had a legal dispute. Do whats right people and support Five.Ten!
