Who here uses good old stomp pads? I always have just because I like the added control between lifts but lately I've seen a lot of riders without them:dunno: .

I used to use them as well but I have found that the traction on boots is alot better than they used to be so I don't have the need for one anymore.

i use them, coz no matter how good the booty waffle, a shiney smooth top sheet is always gonna be slip slidy.

it might not look tres chic, but it would a be a damned shame to strain a groin and inhibit a day or two's sliding, just coz you did the splits when getting off a chair lift!

having said that, i resent forking out top dollar for such things and the ones you buy are stoopid large and so i get a bargain basement foam rubber one (usually simple matt black) and cut it down to about egg cup diameter size. its all you need.

havnt used one in years.

I used to use a stomp pad. It was usually cut-up into fifty or so little pieces.
Now I just push my boot up against the side of the binding. That seems to work just as well as a pad.

I don't. Never really found a need for one.

PaoloSmythe 11-26-2007 08:43 AM

they come in pretty handy for things like drag lifts (button or T bar)

Grimdog 11-26-2007 08:45 AM

Yeah, us flow people don't have that problem.
