Grip rubber sticky rubber in the market same type of rubber that's used in the climbing shoe world so really grippy rubber lug pattern aggressive they are. All set with 92 degree cutting edges so even as the rubber wears down you still. Have a good clean edge for scuffing on rocks integrated tow injection molded. Dual density eva a mid sole with ess.

Pulling the boot on and off both boots use scratch rubber construction. Fundamental difference comes in the upper material the remaining materials this is a high-density nylon woven this. Is a waterproof nu buck leather going to be a little bit more form-fitting a little more durable over the lifetime of the product both are designed to have a. Gravel guard drop down over the top of. The boot simply hooking into the lace or the d-ring the whole story behind simms.

Redington Sonic-Pro Wader - Men's
Redington designed its Sonic-Pro Men's Wader for the angler that spends upwards of ten hours a day fishing for everything from wild steelhead, salmon, and trout. The Sonic-Pro may be simple by design, but that's not to say it isn't built to withstand the harshest fishing environments you'll encounter. For starters, Redington used a four-layer fabric that is waterproof and breathable and used SonicWeld seams for added protection against the kind of leaks traditional taped seams can produce. Integrated neoprene booties and reinforced lower legs protect against debris both in and out of the water, and the chest-high design allows you to wade a bit deeper during river crossings and when fishing those hard-to-reach seams. The addition of an adjustable waist belt and suspenders allow you to make quick adjustments to the fit as you start to lose that winter weight you tacked on sipping porters and tying PMDs.
So i got my new Eddington waiters in. The mail from adam next day i returned my large 1213 size for the large long's. As you saw previously i thought the. Regular large 12 13s were just a tad. Short and i was worried about the booby says with the large long's i believe the. Booty size they get smaller but looking. Back it doesn't seem that much tighter so. We'll try them on just so you can see what they look like difference but I'm. Very happy with the purchase and avonex did a great job excellent customer service returned home sent me the new. Ones with i would any questions asked so. There we go the large lungs definitely. Have a lot more room especially in like. Crotch region before when i was sitting. Down and pretending the over logs the. Large 1213 just didn't seem to be loose. Enough so I'm very happy i upgraded and swap them out for the large loans it. Might be a little larger at the top and a little bit bigger just in general however in the long term i think they're gonna wear a lot better than if i were to have stayed with the shorter ones that we're just a little tight a little uncomfortable I'm very happy thank you. Having max for reaching out i sent him. An email that called me the same day sent me a return slip put my old ones in. The box sent them and then got these within a day or so excellent return process very happy. With added max and these ready thing waiters awesome of a deal. So while here at fort knox otter creek. And testing out my new waders so it's. About 27 degrees so far things are. Feeling pretty good I've got a few layers on and go outside on the water. Catch some tarpon well there we have it first trout Eddington waders i think. They're trout magnets.
Korkers Greenback Felt Boot - Men's
Not so different than your favorite pub appetizer, the Korkers Men's Greenback Felt Boot is a loaded with features that ultimately offer paramount performance, unparalleled traction, and solid comfort, so you can focus on the fish (or lack thereof) rather than your feet. The Greenbacks feature the Omnitrax Interchangeable Sole System and come fully equipped with a felt sole. However, the Greenbacks are compatible with other Korkers' specific interchangeable soles, so you can adapt your traction to meet the performance needs of each river system.
The Greenbacks are constructed specifically for wet-wading anglers with hydrophobic waterproof materials that reduce water absorption and overall weight, which also enables them to dry faster and in turn, assist in preventing the spread of invasive species. The cemented parts, strategic seam locations, toe caps, and web lace-loops increase longevity. Iintegrated midsole drainage ports also allow water to drain quickly to keep the boots lighter while you wade.

We've been out on the south fork river for the past couple of days filled testing the new asus sonic zip front so i stopped by the local pro shop to be able to take you through some of the new features on the asus the first thing. That we wanted to do because we've been working on this waiter for the past couple of years, and we really want to start from the ground up, so we concentrated on developing a new ergonomic lee design anatomic left and. Right fit stocking foot it shapes to the. Unique design of your foot and it's sculpted so it reduces bulk inside of your weight shoe over the past two years we focused our efforts on developing the next generation of sonic welding technology and sonic 2.0 utilizes a. Double folded sonic weld to eliminate. Thousands of stitch holes in the waiter, and we also reinforced it for added. Strength with waterproof seam tape so it keeps water on the outside of your waiter or where it belongs the lowest of.

There are a couple of miles of dirty hiking trails and slimy river crossings between you and your secret fishing holes, which is why you choose Hodgman's Vion H-Lock Wade Boot. Its H-Lock System allows you to replace the boot's sole with welt for grip on slimy stones, or you can keep the rubber sole intact for the trail. Lined in neoprene, the waterproof nubuck leather upper works hard to keep your foot comfortably dry while fly fishing, and the drainage ports add self-cleaning convenience when you're hiking back to the car.
Hires pete McLeod here from our varma cloud I'm going to give you another product review i think i needed some new. Wading boots because those are definitely past their prime so haha what. I've got here is a pair of hodgman veon. Interchangeable sold wading boots which. I'm pretty excited about my last ones. Have done me well but I'm afraid they are definitely ready for the scrap heap. So what's really exciting about these is they're an interchangeable sole system i. Now that a number of different manufacturers have tried to make interchangeable souls all have done so successfully for a few for a few years. Now but what i find particularly fascinating about these is that the. Dual lock sole system quick on unboxing. Here what I've got here whirling disease. Prevention excellent coachmen well done. Here is a description on how the h lock sole system works and here is a new boot. Any question. So this is the new hodgman v on h lock. Boot my first impressions are it's a big. Solid hard construction boot it looks. Like it's going to last a good long time it's not that heavy for its size i know it looks quite a big clunky boot it. Doesn't feel very heavy at all and. Looking at the specification so this is. The first set of interchangeable. Sole troops I've ever had now this to me just makes perfect sense whether you're going to be fishing either a river or you're going to be. Clunking around the banks of a lake or you know depending on which bottom variation you're going to be on sometimes you're on slippery boulders sometimes you have to walk into the area. You're going to which requires more of a. Hiking type sole because felts brilliant. As we know in the slippery rocks and. Things like that utterly useless when you are starting across mud hardening like that so here's an opportunity to combine the best of both worlds firstly I'm going to have a. Look at this h lock system so reading. The instructions it appears that i lift up this part here i push this part in. And the boot just literally slides and. Pops the whole song off that's really clever so i don't know if you can see there you've got situation where it locks in. Runners on the sole of the boot so rather than being just caught in the front of the bag the entire soul locks down in four. Different spots so you've got the lower one we've got the middle one that it moves around and you've got another one in the middle across your main part of your foot and then you have this upper. Runner which will hold it like the site and then you've got a dual active great toe on the front so you're not actually. Taking the weight of interchangeable salt on the front of the boot so to lock. It back in literally you just line it up. Push it in connect to make sure that all. The runners are in the right place and then you just slide it in and that is. Not going anywhere at all that's british. Like that a lot so let's have a look at. Some specifications on this boot so I'm just going to put this here for a. Second so my cheat sheet tells me that. The hodgman vion o'clock boots very cool. Name has the h lock interchangeable system which I'm going to go into in a. Little more depth in a second they are neoprene lines for extra warmth so. Essentially rather than having all that. Water inside the boot sloshing around as you're walking a long way you down it doesn't get that far and just come straight out of the runner system in the bottom so there are drainage ports that. Come straight through in the actual dual. Lock sole so the boot actually drains. Through the bottom of these which actually clear these out at the same time which is really very clever. what else we got it's a waterproof. Buck leather and hydro hydrophobic. Synthetic upper country writing that essentially means it is not. Going to rot because the number of pairs of boots that i have I'm terrible with groups I'm sure that people probably. Look after them far better than i do but I'm afraid they just tend to get hold in a bag at the end of the day and sorted out at a later date which is normally never and that kind of anti rot proof. Thing is going to go a long way to. Helping me out the boot is double. Stitched construction you can see double stitching all the way through which again i think is going to make it more durable there is a d-ring which has been. Put in here for gravel guards as most. Weight as these days come with a built in gravel guard and a hook on the front so rather than putting it on the laces and wearing how your laces which invariably I've certainly done in the past then you've actually got a d hook. To actually put that on which is cool there's a light weight say. That 20 times off you've had a drink. Shock-absorbing evie a mid sole which. Essentially means it's built more like a trainer so it's much more comfortable to walk on you get a bit of bounce and i. Don't know about you but i have had bruised feet in my wading boots when clambering over rocks and that kind of thing so I'm quite excited about that they are. Corrosion and salt waterproof which. Means that i can wear them in the salt so from the bass fishing or I'm not sure. Like probably the tropics big bit black. But certainly if I'm going to go and paddle around for coastal s3 fishing or something like that that means of salt waters not going to rot them the metal parts have all been made corrosion proof which is great now there are four different souls that come with this boot you have the straight rubber sole which. Is this one here which has got a great grip on almost like a cleated grip and then. You have rubber and stud and then you. Have felt and then you have felton stud. So I've got my spare felton studs here. Which come in mr. hand you little packet. Pop these open felton stud to be honest. Is always been my favorite combination i know that it's becoming increasingly unpopular around the world whether now no longer allowed in alaska new zealand. But countries like iceland and norway long as you disinfect them properly with. A 3% work on solution I'm comfortable in. Using them but I've always found that felt and start gives me easily the best. Grip especially on slippery rocks so if. I just make sure I've got right clues. Here i haven't incidentally there's. Actually an area on the bottom of the soul that's got river names so you could even have a separate pair of soles for the different rivers you're fishing to really prevent any form of bacterial. Movement or anything like that so I'm going to pop that on their line up the sliders and there we go. Locked straight on that easy. That's a really solid boot really. Like this toe as well the number of times that I've gone through the toes of my waiting boots so that's dead easy so for example you. Could use one set of soles like the rubber grip ones for hiking into the river that you're going into and then. When you get to the river you can switch them out of your backpack and you can put the felt and stubble which i think is a really clever idea that's the dual lock system i think is. Really what makes these boots pretty revolutionary the way that they slide in. And lock in both places and you have to. Undo both locks to allow that soul to move at all it means it's really not going anywhere at all so very excited about those. And i think i better put them on quickly. Just to have a quick feel for how they feel right okay and i quickly throw. These on well I've got to say even just. Wearing them with just my ordinary socks on they're incredibly comfortable so. It's so comfortable i think I'm going to. Wear them home I've also just discovered. In the box is another set of felt clean. Felt soles so all in all you get two. Sets of soles when you buy the boot and then if you do what i did which is to buy an extra pair just to make sure that. I've got the felt and stud then i think i pretty much got everything that i need to cover every eventuality whether I'm. Going to be fishing in houma slippy edges of the copper river in british columbia or whether I'm going to be waiting around in iceland or whether I'm going to be falling in the chalk streams at home either way i think I'm sorted i hope you enjoyed this video if you did please like and subscribe and i look forward to seeing you on the next gear review thanks a lot
