/ Crampon Advice
I want to use them with Scarpa mantas.
I've used petzl lynx crampons with mammut boots for ice climbing and was very impressed so am likely to go petzl again.
I also like the leverlock binding system but am confused as there are so many different binding types - help
Petzl irvis have been suggested
You could potentially go with the Cramp-o-Matic binding but the Newmatic gives you maximum flexibility should you wish to chance boots in future and generally performs equally well.
After reading the rest of your post and faffing around looking again at the range of Petzl crampons, my recommendation is still exactly the same.
The OP said he had 'used' them, which clearly implies that he doesn't actually own a pair, since if he did own a pair it would have been a very strange form of words to use.
I was advised however that for general hillwalking these were not the best/right crampons (as I assume that they are for actual ice climbing (which was what I got them for).
I'm not really that well versed in winter gear (apart now from ice climbing which I did for the first time in France this year - and that was the first time I have ever used crampons)
