ok here goes a thread with reviews for different shoes. it should show the shoes new elitetrackers should consider buying for their different events. ill only put a few different sprint spikes first, and ill modify this post as i get information. ill add new shoes and info then. also, voice your support for a shoe so people can know which shoes people back. here it goes:
powersprint: this is a class of shoe that includes the 2005 demolishers, powersprint 2, the new adistar sprint, and other powersprints. made for races 400m and under.
pros: stiff and flexible, comfortable. it is a very versatile spike. its also pretty cheap from shoebacca.
cons: not very durable, plate cracks in the niches, and some materials fall off under heavy use
model differences: the demolishers have a pointy toebox. the adistar sprint uses velcro straps.
contributors: cockysprinter, thechosenone1
superfly: this includes the g5, p plus, p2, and older models. a few other shoes use the same plate, such as the puma complete theseus and the power cat. best used for non curve races.
pros: the plate is solid all the way through, making it durable and very stiff. there are many pins for traction.
cons: the plate may fit some people funky, and they often are a little heavier.
model differences: the p plus is heavier and cheaper, with a zip shroud that isnt very durable. the g5 is lighter and very popular. the p2 is said to suck for fit, as they are extremely narrow.
demolisher: this is a shoe that includes the stars and stripes demolisher and the demolisher 2. it does not include the 05 demolisher that is a modified powersprint.
pros: very stiff, similar to the superfly. the plate fits differently, so it provides an alternative.
cons: once again heavy and may fit people weird.
model differences: appearance. the stars and stripes are the same as the orange and black.
monster fly: this is the nike monster fly.
cons: it is banned from USATF competition.
