Topic - La Sportiva Jeckyl/Tarantula

rhinobiker - on 30 Aug 2013
Hi guys, I'm new here and just wanted some advice. I've been climbing about 5 times and have come to the stage where I am climbing 5.10a (5+) and really getting into it and want my own climbing shoes. I climb mainly sport routes and do bouldering at the local Gym, but I can see myself progressing to outdoor climbing (although mainly staying indoors). At the moment, I hire La Sportiva Tarantula shoes, however I have seen a good deal on brand new La Sportiva Jeckyl (the lace version) shoes. I was wondering if any of you guys would know if the Jeckyl is better or worse than the tarantula's that I hire at the moment in terms of performance, because obviously I want to be getting shoes that are better than the ones I hire at the moment and allow me to increase the difficulty of grades that I can climb. Thanks in advance, Ryan. :)
