DowsesWaxIs it worth getting a pair when I get new boots or should I just stick with alpine?
If you want more traction, easier walking, and just as safe of a release as an alpine binding (when combined with a WTR compatible binding) then go for it. But again, your binding has to be compatible with the WTR sole and not all bindings are.
What binding are you or will you be using?
charmanderare you going to be touring?
if not, then get alpine soles for more consistent release.
Just to be clear, a WTR sole is just as safe and consistent in its release as an alpine binding is when that WTR sole is combined with a binding that accepts it.
