16/17 Surge Review – Old Guys Rip Too

Touring/skinning in the Surge for 2+ hours was very satisfying. I used the Rip ‘N’ Flip Highback in the -13 degrees hiking position, switched from not using the climbing wire to using it often by just using the butt of my poles to adjust from 0° to 12° and 18° when necessary. Touring mode, kick turns, and the overall approach in these was a really pleasant experience — effortless in most every situation. The approach had some higher angle aspects to it and I felt like these bindings helped me expend less energy than I expected, due to the one climbing wire, but that could just be me. https://www.oldguysriptoo.com/spark-randd-surge-binding-review/
