I bought these before the 06/07 ice season and used them drytooling before I got on ice. They worked well drytooling, but you REALLY have to strap them tight to get the heel to stay locked down....on my superalpinistas it was this way, anyhow. I finally got to try them on ice and they are terrific. They feel really solid frontpointing. The sidelock system is finicky and take some time to get adjusted, but aside from all these things they climb ice so well I have to give them a 5/5. If you can, cover up the heel spur with a piece of tape/silicone hose if you aren't using them on ice as they catch the rope, slings, your butt, etc.
