i'm going to get a cheapo set to start with £99 all in,, (boots inc).. as i don't get out fishing in areas where i'll need them as often as i'd like, (probably only a couple of dozen sessions a year)... so i really can't see the point in spending loadsa money on breathables that i'll hardly ever use.. :(

Greys GRXi's are great value, about £60, they will be my next pair when my Snowbee combi soles are worn out, but the Snowbees are just lasting for ever, true I dont do much wading. Both the Snowbee and Greys have no metal at all on them, all plastic fittings, sw freindly.

Daz, maybe getting wading boots will be the right thing, when the boots wear out, just get a new pair. If the attached boot wears out....buy some new waders.....I know which I'd be getting. If you've got some really rough ground (much like my local), a pair of scierra boots just about makes a season, with some running repairs to the felt soles. I'm on my 3rd pair of boots but still my first set of breathables (running repairs on these too!)


The boots cost me £35 from tacklesmart

I know that when we fished Stackpole Quay on the Welsh meet, the rocks going around the headland tore my PVC waders to shreds (2 holes in left leg), so i'd hate to see what would have happened to a pair of breathables. :shock:

I got some of the GRXi's this time last year.

Have probably been out with them 30 times or so on rough sharp terrain and they're still going strong.

Some wear but more cosmetic than anything else.

As for the felt bottoms... amazing. Haven't even used the cleats as they are so good.

One tip though, be carefull once you get used to them. When you go out with normal boots, forget, and try and move that fast, it hurts. :wackit:
