A comparative review for sizing
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
TC Pro 42.5 - Stiff, great edging, low sensitivity. I can comfortably multipitch in these, I sized them pretty comfy right out of the box. The padding makes them awesome in cracks, but the toe profile isn't super narrow, so they do suffer a tad on ringlocks/thin hands. I love them for heel-toes in wide stuff, and they're gloriously comfortable in 2-3" cracks.
Miura 42 - Took a while to break in, but now glove-like and tight
Cobra 42 - Never got as comfy as the miura's, more pressure points, aggressively snug. Good for 1 pitch at a time.
Mythos 42.5 - Way tighter on the forefoot than i liked, got rid of them.
Nago 42.5 - Super comfortable almost immediately, soft, wide forefoot, kind of low performance.
