/ Crampons advice - BD clip or pro version?
Hi, I have the Nepal EVo boots and want to get some crampons. I think the BD sabretooth os the best option due to price. Should I get the clip or the pro version?
i want to use them for glacier travel and ice climbing.
Just a note that I currently have Grivel G10 classic bindings.
Thanks for any advice
If one of the fitting is much better than the other then which ever fits your boots the best. If both fit well enough for you to be happy then I think the clip is a better fitting. It's easier to get on and off and literally can't come off. Also as your soles wear down the pro fitting changes and your front point protrusion reduces. With the clip the doesn't happen. The other advantage is your don't need to worry about your front welt wearing down either.
Did BD figure out that whole cracking stainless steel issue?
I don't know how much of a problem this is as you'd think BD would have gone back to the old steel if it was. The SS does blunt a bit faster IMO
Now I think about it I think I remember reading BD updated the newer models with thicker points.
Just an update, purchased a used set of G12s and they were perfect. Thanks for all the suggestions / comments.
