Courtney Dean wrote a review of Black Diamond Long Center Bars on August 28, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Like, really, really large. I am size 13 and there are 6 or 7 more notches on these bars. That's getting into clown shoe sizes!
I am wondering about trimming to fit and saving the 20 grams, but figure i'm not that big of a weenie.
Other than the astounding lenght, the center bar system in BD crampons is great. Easy to swap out and set up. The bars are not dedicatad to either foot (flip it over and a right suddenly becomes a left) making installation practically fool proof. Great for the absent minded Gear Guru.
