Stompers....

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 .

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.

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

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.

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