/ the truth between quarks v Vipers
+1 from me
Yes it does but its very personal
I love my Vipers but my partner hates them and swears by her quarks
Like climbing shoes try before you buy!!
Are you kidding? The difference is HUGE!
I own a pair of Quarks and I do not own a pair of Vipers.
With the Quarks I am able to climb a variety of winter routes - mixed and ice.
Without the Vipers I am able to do little more than a snowy walk.
Can't you grasp that???
It's a non-question. The way to go is one of each. If one's better you'll start drifting sideways, but then you can just swap hands. Simples.
