New England Resoul

A new resole company, I've used them twice now. They did good work on a pair of moccasyms for me last season, and okay work on my Scarpa Instincts this season. The toe rand work was slightly sloppy, and my toe pushes into the front more, but overall, not bad.

Does anyone in the US have XS Edge 2 rubber?

No resoler will have "XS Edge 2"

Vibram only makes XS Edge available for resole at this time.

The compositions of xs edge, xs grip, xs edge 2 (& nearly all climbing shoe rubbers) are nearly identical. In general, softer rubber is stickier but wheres down faster much faster, especially in hot areas. Harder rubber is pretty sticky but lasts much longer, good for edging, etc.

I've always found it's the climber, not the rubber, that completes the route, solves the problem, or not.

Yes, it's the artist not the brush, but...

Most resolers in Europe have XS Edge 2, wonder why not here? Having climbed extensively in both flavors, I do have a preference for Edge 2. When you're climbing at the edge of your own ability, little things can make a difference.

I wasn't aware of a second Edge rubber. You sure you're not thinking of XS Grip 2?

^^^ I bet he got confused. Rock & Resole has had the Grip2 rubber since some time this spring (or was it last summer?) Sounded like Sportiva, not Vibram, does the rubber importing. I guess it helps Sportiva NA & R&R are literally only 1/2 mile apart.

Thanks, that's what I figured. Guess I'll have to ask what the R&R number is...

Yerp, meant grip 2 indeed. Good to know, will call R&R as soon as I get the number...

I emailed Vibram about the xsGrip2 rubber and they said they can't supply it directly to anyone but La Sportiva due to contractual agreements. So Rock 'n Resole must get it from Sportiva.
