User Review: La Sportiva Tradmaster
Price Paid: $110 US
Weak shoe - one 90 ft Vedauwoo pitch put ~ 1.5 mm razor blade like slices in the rubber and the little edging I did on the route was starting to take chunks of rubber off the toe. Maybe it was a bad batch of rubber but I'd avoid the friXion rubber in the future for the tried and true XSV that Sportiva still uses on their other shoes.
Aside: the toe of the Tradmaster isn't as pointy as the "equivalent" Focus model of a few years prior, and is probably too blunt for most intermediate to advanced climbers.
