Sur stilts for me have Dura stilts also but prefer the sur-stilts
Had mine for 5 years the shoe swivel broke that's about it.... replaced the leg ties just recentMY skywalker nightmare quick adjustment fell apart on me ...they sent me a new one (left leg ) so now I have one super tight one and one loose one ...need a new pair and I dont know what to get next...I like how fast I can jump up on them and start working but they are so cheep:furious::boxing:
...............274 pounds eh'
So if you were to punch a certain Kiwi(man) really really hard, how many layers of drywall do you think you could knock him through
So what you're saying is the S2 mags are far superior than the skywalkers? are they much lighter? I ask because my skywalkers are getting sloppy in every bolt and latch and I might look at updating them instead of fixing them.I used dura-stilts most of my life. Got a pair thats over 20 years old(yes, I keep em re-built)
Had to go to S2-mags cause of arthritis, can't beat em for comfort,,PERIOD
I have the skywalkers too, and I like em WAY better than dura-stilts. I haven't had a single problem with them since I got em out of the box,,, perhaps you guys might want to think about doing a little maintenance on em,,, like cleaning em off every once in awhile. LOL
To sum it up,, as a dura-stilt guy since 1973,,,,, Get some S2's,,,, or at least the Skywalkers. IMHO,,, dura-stilts are in the horse and buggy days,,,, top of the line, way back then, but,, things are differant today.
I like mine. They take a few extra seconds to strap on, and some getting used to, but you don't need to ream on them to keep your feet from falling out. Maybe spend some extra time adjusting them? The comfort in walking on them for hours sure outweighs the few extra seconds it takes to get them on. IMOThe new straps on my dura IV are nothing but a PITA!! they are a poor design to get in and out of... good when walking. But the old boot straps were fine. Im pretty disapointed with boot straps.
Anyone have any tips??

I find it hard to tighten the plastic strap, dont know if its in, cant get it where I want.They are a pain! I wish I had never bought mine . The heel clips on mine broke .
Not a pair of stilts you just jump up on.. The fit is loose no matter how hard I try.
