I know this question has been asked before but, from the responses I saw, the answer at the time was no.

So, is there any place where you can get resoles with XS Grip2?

Yeah, their form still does not list XS Grip2, which is why I asked.

My understanding is that the XS Grip2 rubber isn't imported, at least not by rock and resole, so they can't do it for you. Brototype

Thanks for the suggestion, Steve. Looks like Locker at least has the first gen XS Grip, which R&R doesn't have. Crag Dweller

Do you really notice a difference between the grip2 and edge? I had my resoles done on my Vapor V's with XS Edge and didn't notice a significant difference from the XS-Grip2. They are currently at rock and resole for another XS Edge treatment redlude97

I have two pairs of the same shoe, one with edge, the other with grip. And, I do actually notice a slight difference. Admittedly, the difference could be nothing more than a figment of my imagination.

But, if my imagination gives me just that little boost of confidence required to make my way through a crux and get the send, it's worth at least doing a little research to find out if it's available.

I've always had my Muira XS resoled with the edge XS rubber. Has anyone ever resoled Muira XS with Onyx rubber? Also debating getting my Scarpa Magos resoled..is the best rubber Onyx? I mostly climb on granite so I prefer rubber than can take a beating. Skat B
