Topic - Crampon considerations...

Jamie B - on 01 Mar 2013
Two seperate questions really, but both occupying me as I consider getting new points.

Which is more secure, crampomatic or newmatic style front bindings/bails? I've had both come off, but am starting to think the wire bail is not so clever on well-worn boots, or that it even contributes to the front of the sole unit lifting out? The flip side is that it does seem to set the points further forward.

I never felt that the secondary points on my G14s did all that much, which is one of the reasons I stopped using them on ice - would anyone suggest whether the Lynx or Cyborg are any more convincing in this respect? And what other pros and cons to these models?

All ideas, anecdotes and chat welcome.
