Re: Stilts


I have a set of duras that I've owned for 25 yrs now. granted, I don't use them every day. but they work as good as the day I got em. had to change the straps once. that's it!

Re: Stilts


I made the switch from duras to sur stilts years ago and am happy I did. Im not knocking duras as they are the " Originals" but after strapping on the double sided sur stilts I cant go back. I see they have changed the calf strao on newer model duras,, that may help. I dont like the straps rubbing my leg raw ( I wear shorts year round) and I actually have hair on my legs where the strap goes They are lighter and more comfy and I dont see any difference in durability.

That works good a double sided cuff, I never thought of that, thank you for the heads up.

I like my set but I wish the straps were like sky walkers ...they stay up and are easy to strap up
