Got the lend of some stilts next week, marshaltown skywalker, i have tried stilts before and didnt get on with them, the lad whos stilts they are says these have more springs and move more like part of hour leg/foot. I think the ones I had while where cheap in comparison also where the tall ones. How do people get on with them and what are the rst marshaltown ones like as googling skywalker stilts they seem to discontinued.
Cheers

I couldn't use them there horrible to walk on compared to the normal ones hence why there discontinued.

That said my old apprentice used to use them and I think they are better made than the normal ones but I and many others didn't like them to actually walk with.

Not a fan of the Skywalker stilts. Have a friend who loves them though. They do adjust quickly and the snowboard style clamps are nice but they're much heavier than my sur-stilts pro S2s, and I don't think they are nearly as stable.

This is what I use and highly recommend.
I got these a couple of months ago. There great, really comfortable. I’m selling my old sur mags if your interested @001.

They look fantastic but are impossible to walk on they feel like you have a dumbbell under your sole compared to the

i got the medium ones plus the big f**k**s and I prefer them to the old style purely cause they don’t pull on your legs, much more comfy

Fair play I do think there better made, I couldn't get on with them though.

That said I haven't used any now for over 10years as they were knackering up my knees.

Think they’d be better strapped round the thigh with a hinged knee. Forrest Gump extensions

There is a replica version of them, not done by mtown but they look the same. Cant mind who does them though, seen them recently

Christ that looks scary, anyone ever stepped on a blob of wet plaster with stilts and hit the deck?
Not went down yet. Close a time or two. Plastering in tiled floor always fun. Or that plastic some them have on floorboards now.

Paint cans!

Although in my previous house, I didn't put the lid on one properly. I was painting a townhouse top floor ceiling over the stairs (four floors), foot went through it

You can imagine the rest.


Had my best slippers on at that point too


What would you use if you wasn’t lonely?

My brother walked off a Jones homes site last week for a firm called redrose dryling.
Over not doing a week in hand.

He skimmed around 30 plots for them ....then they decided to pull that shiit.

He said he'd go back once he got his £1350.
They paid him this morning and voicemailed saying it's gone in.

Must of called him and text about 15 times today.

The gang of boarders on his new site were taking videos of my brother skimming and sending it to redrose boss shouting lost your best skimmer ya c**t on snap chat all day lol.
