I'm renewing some of my kit at the moment and fancy a new pair of stilts.

Seeing as their a sponsor now I've been looking at the latest version of the Dura-Stilts Carobyn

Has anyone on here got Dura-stilts? Is it worth paying the premium? You can get the copys for £60 off ebay. My brother bought a set a few months back and they seem fine, but I've not seen the dura-stilts for myself so don't know the difference.

Was that the marshalltown skywalkers you had? The big clumpy ones?

Had both style of mt ones the skywalker ones didn't like as springs only go forward where others go backwards as well

Got some MT SW 2.0s in 1999 ..... still going fine ... nothing broken yet ..... good stilts - spring always needs to be really tightened so your walking position is rightwhen the ankle is bending etc

In what way are they better? Do you have them?
I want something light and comfy because I'm weak and lazy.

Where's @carobyn with the hard sale and forum discount?

No wonder H&S were all over them ,messes things up for everyone ,no one can make bob with that kind of carry on,although in fairness ,builders were wreck less and lives were cheap not so long ago ,should be some happy medium between common sense and guntering
