Cypher sentinel vs TC pro, fit and sizing?

I wear 42.5 TC pro, but have become less and less a fan, first pair was perfect, subsequent pairs too wide and when broken in become a sloppy fit.

I have new BD aspects which I am breaking in slowly, I think are going to be my all around , but they are low top and I definitely need high tops for wide cracks.. Would appreciate any info about Sentinels

I have a pair of sentiles. They are great for all day use on moderates, cracks and pure slab. They suck on edges.

As cypher claims, they do indeed fit true to size. I made the mistake of going down half a size and had to deal with return shipping and restocking fees through LM. They really aren't meant for trying to cram your feet into so if that's what you like, look for a different shoe.

One downside is that your toes can feel like they are slipping when your feet start sweating, which isn't the most confidence inspiring. I used to have 5.10 grandstones, those were awesome.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
