Default Dakine Rubber Spike Stomp pad

So i got this Dakine stomp pad DAKINE Spike Stomp Pad at REI.com , it says you can cut it and manipulate it to your liking... since it's in 5 rows/columns, i was thinking to cut 3 peices.. have two rows up top, one in the middle, and 2 for the heel? does anyone have this stomp? or have any recs? i want all areas of my foot to be supported..

cheers

I've been using the Dakine X-matt for years and absolutely love it. Mine is blue, though.

Yeah, they are. I have the modular one and it has small spikes and is made of a slick plastic material.

The Spike Stomp pad is bigger, has larger spikes, and is made of rubber. Get that one, it's better.

I have the big spike Dakine pad and it holds onto my boot really well, even when my board is covered with snow.

Another friend got the modular Dakine pad and said it's like nothing is there if there's even a bit of snow on it. He has buyer's remorse and wishes he'd gone with the big spikes.

if your gunna do a stomppad the spike ones are the only ones worth it.

However, stomppads are completely useless. I was told by a coworker this season that stompads are unnecessary, and I responded yea well I like my foot staying in place. He said "yea me too, but its straight physics. exert pressure through the board and the concave of the topsheet will hold you foot on."

after getting used to it, Ill never buy another stompad.

I use the Dakine Pyramid Studs. They are large like the rubber spikes, so they wont become useless when a bit of snow gets on them. I like them better because they dont shout out "HEY LOOK AT MEEE IM A STOMPPP PADDD!!" They come in black, white, or chrome and you can arrange them however you want to keep your setup looking clean and natural. I arranged mine in specific points on the board so that every single contact point of my boot is supported by a spike. They look like more of a decoration than a functional stomp pad... they remind me of those square studs kids used to put on their backpacks at school.

honestly, ive found the best stomp pads to be the metal studs that burton, volcom, dakine etc sell... make a triangle out of them angling inward toward your back binding..its better than any stomp pad ive used and looks way way wayyyy better
