/ Sportiva Spantik Boots & G14 Crampons????
Does anyone know if Spantik Boots & Grivel G14 Cramp-o-matics (with the wire front bale) actually fit together fine??? I've tried to find out on internet but there seems to be various opinions. Got the G14's already & looking to maybe get those boots.
They don't go well together, the front of the boots overhang the front points to much, even if you move the bail arm, i sold mine and bought bd cyborgs which fit great !

^This, I ended up ordering a pair of petzl ones (sarkens IIRC)
Basically part of the reason why some people have a problem with th front point protrusion on G14s (on various boots!) and other don't is because the wire bails vary from batch to batch, some are much baggier than others and therefore have worse protrusion!
