Edelrid Talon Tree Climbers
- Product Review (submitted on September 28, 2017):
- OK unfortunately I have to write a somewhat bad review. The reason being is that these spikes are advertised at 2.8 pounds. I have been using the gecko carbon fiber spikes since they came out approximately eight years ago. The gecko carbon fiber spikes are advertised at 3.75 pounds so i thought i would give the Talon spike a try since it was approximately a whole pound lighter. But immediately when I took the spikes out of the package I knew that they were way heavier than the gecko carbon fiber spikes. These spikes are way more cumbersome than the gecko carbon fiber's as well. I had no idea that a $40 difference would put me in the boat that I'm in now. Wish I would've just bought the gecko carbon fiber's again. Someone needs to figure out whether we are weighing one spike or both spikes. On the upside it is the most comfortable spike I've ever put on.
