only get ones that have the velcro strap or they might fall off.

I just picked up a pair of Yaktraks at Army Navy. Dick's also carries them. All under $20.

Good reviews!

Brian didnt seem to have any trouble with his at the mountain on Friday, but i heard if there is signifacant snow they can be "pulled" off sometimes. Maybe i'll rig up an ankle strap for around the laces of my shoes if i encounter any problems. The STABLicers actually do pivot well and still held firm when i tried Brians, the yak-traks seem to lock your foot down and not allow much pivot(as per DGM Kevin).

All in all, one is probably better off with some sort of "ice cleats" than with out.

Keep the reviews coming. I'll post mine when i get them in the mail.

See yaw at the mtn.

i too have the one with the velcro strap and have no problems with them. When davis posted the pic of the stablicers i thought they looked like they could easily slip off the foot.

Stabilicers kept coming off Brians shoes when we were playing at Long Trout. I have the Yaktrax that have a velcro band that goes over your shoe to hold them on better. I have not had any problems "pivoting" with mine, but I play a more cautious game in the winter. Either ones that you get, they are not designed for pivoting and that is why the come off. I have had my Yaks for 2 years and they move around my shoes a little (the rubber is getting worn). I think your shoe tread in general will also be a factor, hiking boots with good tread will hold them in place, while sneakers will allow them to roam around your feet!

I own a pair of Yaktrax. They hold your feet to the ground much too securly to allow your body to pivot when you throw, as least on ice. When I was playing in the snow at S Mountian, Nocky, and Tinicum the other day I was able to pivot much better with there being snow on the ground. I'm always going to keep a pair in my bag though, they are good in more than just icy conditions. I find they are good to have on when crossing a stream that has a few slippery rocks.

They cost me 21.05 with tax.

One could just hammer nails through their shoes. It would cost less and alleviate all shipping delays while providing for easy puncture of opponents and insolent plastic

Cabelas in Hamburg is sold out.

I ordered a set online at cabelas.com however they only have XL left in stock.

Campmor.com has Larges in stock.

With 3-5 day delivery they should be here mid next week, but you may want to upgrade to overnight for the extra $10 to be sure.
