Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I was a fan of the solutions forever and got these as everyone said they were just an improved Solution, and they were right. The heel is still solid and stiff, but the outside is slightly narrower so it fits more heel hook positions/ holds. The toe is more stiff as the rubber is not extended so far away from the toe like the solutions which makes for more power and a better/ more accurate feel on foot holds. The only downside is that if you climb outside a lot, they do not hold up like solutions do to outside climbing. The toe patch and other materials can start to peel a little bit.
