OMFG!!!!!!!! dexter vs tour ultras
« on: January 20, 2009, 01:51:52 PM »

Tour ultras comfy, light and the same width as the SST8s,

I will never buy another pr of dexters.

solid at the line.. never once misstepped....

I will be in the market shortly for a NEW pr of ULTRAS

never had an issue with dexter until this SST'8 fiasco........
been battling back and forth with them for a week now.....
They want me to trade DOWN and get a pr of sst6 which I was happy with.... from the pr I had before.... I will end up paying $140 for a $106 pr of shoes.. not right in my opinion....at all.


I just asked them to refund or exchange for a different size.

Lets see what happens. If they don't bite either way I will have a pr of size 12s up for sale here..... they did offer to exchange at one point. if I can't get the 10s to resell, then I will have to get the 12s and take a loss on them.

Try getting ahold of a lady my the name of carol porter. She helped me out with a few problems I had. I trade in 2 pairs of 80 dollar shoes that I wore for 4 years and she sent me sst5 lx and pair of sst6 Le. If anybody can help you it would be her

thats who I would be talking to, actually fighting with, lol.

I bought the SST8 to be able to switch hands bowling and not have to carry 2 pr of shoes.... not happening..... and she does not seem willing to do what it takes to keep me happy. I asked for a REFUND or a pr of SSt8s in size 10, I have not gotten a response as of yet.

Sorry that you had issues with your Dexters.  I've got nearing, or exceeding, 1000 games on my first pair of SST6LX's and they look, feel, and perform as great as the first day I put them on.  A few months into ownership, I bought a second pair to put into use when the first pair started to deteriorate.  I don't think these are even close to being retired.  They look like they've got another 1000+ games left in them.

My problem with the SST8's are the soles, both the slide and the traction are wearing out very quick.  I am using the new S6 soles, white/perferated.  Talked to my distributor and they can not get these soles yet.  I am now using the old perferated soles and my 3rd traction sole (#3).

I know of one other person that is having th same problem as me.

Not sure why these soles are wearing so quick, the only thing I can think of is bad design/material.

I have a pair of the Sport Ultras and even the Ultras just bowl my old Dexters out of the water no comparison much more comfy, fewer misteps less falling off shots.

sarcasm on* kudos to dexter for their timely 3 day turnaround on emails....
I sent them one on tuesday evening and have recieved NO response.
This is after repeated emails discussing the issue, that did come thru in a timely manner... I would think if I were waiting on someones response I would flag their email address and solve the issue at hand as quickly as possible, in an effort to make the issue as painless as possible, thereby MAYBE, just MAYBE keeping a customer......Sarcasm off*

she asked what I would like to do, I replied back SST8s in a different size or a refund.....

I have had the SST 6 LX for several years and they are really comfortable and still look brand new save for the fact that the toe on the trail foot shoe is dirty from approach contact.  I have another pair brand new in a box when these ones go belly up, but that probably won't be for a while.  I really like them.

I hope you get your issue with Dexter solved soon, and congrats on your new comfy shoes Buzzhead.. I would be willing to try Tour Ultras if the chick versions weren't so UGLY.

Until you try on a pair of Tour Ultras and walk around in them for awhile you have no idea what your missing. I have been wearing them for about 5 years now and have not found any other brand that has the comfort these shoes have from the second you put them on. Great slide & replaceable toe too.

I second what Mongo said:  
   After using several pairs of Dexters, the last being SST5, I just got sick of the poor quality.  I have had the same pair of ABS Tour Ultras for going on 7 yrs.  Still fit and feel great.  
   Dexter shoes are like Ebonite balls, """They just don't last"""

I wore sstV for over 5 years, Dexter replaced them for the lx's but prior to the lx's coming in I bought a pair of tour ultras, man there is no comparixon on feel or comfort, I will be purchasing a second pair for the closet as they are indeed the most comfortable pair of shoes i have.  the one thing I dont like is the replaceable toe cap, I have yet to find a cap (replacement) that fits like the one that wore off  my only complaint about them.  I hjave been bowling without the cap for a year and am starting to see them wear out

3G tour ultra's.......kangaroo leather, stronger and lighter than cowhide. quality construction, great comfort, 6 soles and 6 heels for slide adjustability. best shoe available.
