Noticed this on climbing narc. New five ten anasazis - apparently designed for vertical to slightly overhanging rock - ie. what most of us climb most of the time.

Lace up (Quantum) and velcro (arrowhead) versions. They look a bit like the pink but with a slightly dragonish aggressive toe. Stealth mystique rubber apparently.

Also a new version of the Moccasym.

Anyone have any more info? Any idea whether these will be available in the UK? Out of interest, was there any sign of these at the UK trade shows?

My mistake, I mean any sign of these at the OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen?

In reply to galpinos: I already wrote a couple of long answers on the other channel.

In brief, the Arrowhead and Quantum look promising but we're reserving judgement until we can test them. The Hornet looks ace but will be aimed at a niche market. We weren't impressed with the Blackwing as it stood but there may be substantial changes before it comes out. Or it may be axed.

They will be available in the UK from Spring11 (which usually means around April)

In reply to hezy: The Green spangly ones that Ned has been wearing lately. Superficially a replacement for the Project but initially felt much better to me. I've only had them on my feet for ten minutes though. I'm hoping to give them a proper test soon.

In reply to gt4_joe: It's titled "FiveTen Blackwing" or similar. The OP was asking about the new 'velcro dragon'.
