As far as durability goes we shall have to see however they are meant for scrambling over rocks.
Good point. I look forward to your final analysis and then a picture of the camo'd orange. :D

Re: Wading boots by shoe companies

Of course width is the problem with boots not designed for waders since neoprene socks affect foot circumference more than length. For example 5mm of wool sock + wader neoprene sock make the length need 10mm bigger. But the circumference is added by about 15mm. That's good to know when considering ...

Re: Wading boots by shoe companies

Looking at the Ladies' Canyon Guide, the color is not as bright but the color scheme is obnoxious. Wonder if sharpie ink would compromise them in some way. If it's safe, one can make custom camo, but with the orange boots, you'd have to cover up every inch of color. I suppose in canyoneering, one wa...

Re: David Attenborough: a life on our planet

The human species is the exact opposite, it destroys everything in it's path to economic growth. Man, I couldn't agree with you more. The overpopulated human race is like a giant swarm of locust consuming everything in its path. I chose not to participate in adding to the numbers, and in the "one o...

Re: Loose grip no squeeze stop?

Hi, Craig. You are correct in Joan's squeeze stop. It's just that when I think about engaging the thumb and all of the fingers, things go awry more easily than when I think of just using the ring and pinky fingers. It's thinking less about the thumb and finger roll (like milking a cow) and more abou...

How would you break them all down? Richard's & Perkin's analyzer with slow-mo video? The results would be fascinating and instructive.

Re: Loose grip no squeeze stop?

There is the tightened grip locking the forearm muscles, what I expect John might consider a block. Then there are the multitude of micro wrists that accelerate the rod, but do not necessarily mean the grip tightens. Mac turned me on to a subtler form he considers "pulling", where the fingers furth...

Re: Loose grip no squeeze stop?

Paul/Nick, what about the basic overhead cast? Do you use a squeeze, or do you just stop? It seems to me, and I certainly am prone to being wrong, that you don't need to squeeze the stop, so long as you stop. I feel like the squeeze just punctuates the stop for the caster, like a period. But you can...
