nice 5 out of 5 stars

I'm not going to lie, initially, I hated these shoes. I figured Id use them for indoor training sessions, and after they broke in, they were fantastic. They make a great shoe for plastic, but in addition I now use them extensively outside as well. I wouldn't have it as my only shoe, as aggressive heel hooks can be problematic, but for an all around shoes they're great on steep boulder problems/sport climbs and great for cracks as well. Recommended.

sweet 3 out of 5 stars

A descent shoe, although not a good fit for my foot. Used them on some harder boulder problems, but the fit issues sort of bug me. The rubber doesn't seem quite as sticky as Stealth, but they seem to be better suited to some rock types than others. A few friends have had issues with the durability of the velcro tabs as well. Over all, not a huge fan, but if they fit, perhaps you will be.

believe the hype 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: rhythm164, 2009-01-22


best pad, hands down. bomber construction with a great carrying system. taken more than a few plummets off highballs and have had no problems. one of the best brands out there, actually delivers on what they promise.

Metolius Simulator 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: rhythm164, 2008-11-26


Great board, one of the best I've used. The texture is great and the wide varieties of grips make for interesting work-outs. Definitely not boring, and the fact that Metolius posted 10 minute sequences on their website makes training readily accessible. The only thing I wish it had was a two hand dish, but it's not that big a deal.
