Does the job well 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: omegaprime, 2007-03-29

6th shoe. Used it for about 5 months before burning a hole in it.
Good points: great for edging, nice deep heel.
Bad points: Downturned design makes it a bit difficult to smear effectively.

Generally a good shoe. Would have gotten another pair, but they didn't have the size I want.

Good shoe 5 out of 5 stars

Very comfy shoes. The rubber lasts but still grips well. Edges and smears like a dream. It streched quite a bit, so my next Falco will be a bit tighter.

My second rope, the first being Beal Top Gun. Overall a good rope, but didn't give it a 5 due to the fact that the catch wasn't as smooth as Beal. I distinctively remember noticing the catch the first time I fell on it, while on the Beal I never noticed when the rope arrests my fall.

Very comfy for an all day shoe, as I got it at my street size. Good for edging, and the new rubber seems to be sticky enough for my needs. The padded heel is a plus. Got myself the velcro version.

Very light, and can take occasional bumps while climbing. The strap feels a bit uncomfortable, but could be I don't have the right setting yet.
