Trying a new brand of shoes!
« on: July 09, 2013, 10:58:20 AM »
After wearing Dexter's ever since the first year of sst 4's in 1995 and now using sst 6 lx. i'm going to try 3g sport ultra's. I've never really liked Dexter's but i liked the interchangable soles and heels. If Lind's would have ever come out with something similar i would have stayed with them. So let's give this new brand a try any opinions from people who've tried both brands is greatly appreciated. Thanks Jimmy

I prefer 3G over Dexter, but that's just me! I've had Dexter and they are comfortable, but I couldn't get them to last very long! I like the slide sole setup on the 3G better than Dexter! I've had the Dexter soles come off and I decided to go with 3G! I liked the Etonic dress, but they don't have interchangeable heels and they are out of the bowling shoe business now!

 I just bought the 3G tour ultras about 6 months ago. I now wonder why I waited so long. So far these are the best shoes I have ever worn. Extremely comfortable, and no issues as of yet and I bowl 3 or more times a week. You will be satisfied.

I just bought the 3G tour ultras about 9 months ago. I now wounder why I waited so long. So far these are the best shoes I have ever worn. Extremely comfortable, and no issues as of yet and I bowl 3 or more times a week. You will be satisfied.
Hopefully i will have the same success. Maybe they will get here today so i can try them out tonight

Linds does have interchangeable soles/heels.  My buddy just bought a pair.  But I'm sure you'll be happy with your Tour Ultras.

I have had the predecessor to the 3G Tour Ultras for a while now, even before the Dyno-Thane days.  Still going strong and highly recommended!!

Just ordered the dexter sst8s. I ordered them a half size smaller because they tend to run a little big, any truth to this?

Dexter & Storm (which are just Dexters with storms name printed on them) are the only PBA approved shoe, so keep that in mind.

Sticking with Dexters--do not have problems with them.  Fits my need perfect.  Not everyone have same feet and can agree with others.  However, if you have find the shoes that fits your feet and needs to be successful on the lanes after trying on a few shoes, stick with the one benefits you best.   ;D

Best shoe to me is 3G. I have had them for quite sometime and finally wore them out. I have had to go back to dexter as 3g doesn't get any size 14's anymore. This has been a let down as these dexter's do not feel anywhere near the comfort I had with my ABS/3G's

My Tour Ultras go back when they were marketed by Dynothane and called Dyna-roos.  Love them.  Very comfortable and are wearing like iron.
Long Gone also posts the honest truth which is why i respect him. He posts these things knowing some may not like it.
