Steven C.wrote a review of La Sportiva Tarantula FriXion RS Climbing Shoe - Men's on February 19, 2012
These shoes first off are great for beginner VB & V0 but will not do the job for anything for V1 and up. I purchase these and tried them for a month and they will not do the job of giving you that extra grip u need on the "really small foot holds", but will make you slip instead. Traction on these aren't as great as the Evolv Defy i had started with as my very first set of shoes, so i'm sad to say these are not up to par with the Defy's in traction and balance. Hope this helps anyone deciding for shoes.
