Has anyone used the Unparallel NewTro Lace Up or NewTro VCS? And if possible what is the difference in stiffness.

I’ve demo’d the newtro VCS and love the fit and feel of the shoe. According to UP, it uses their stiffest rubber and I can attest that it’s slightly stiffer than the regulus. I Only got to boulder in them but they felt great on overhangs and slabby problems, I really like UP’s rubber, seems very durable and is quite sticky on indoor holds. I wear 7.5 street, 7 for fiveten and 7.5 for UP

performance inside is irrelevant, as is climbing on plastic in general.
