Questions on TPU-X
« on: October 23, 2015, 09:31:57 AM »
I tried to use my new 3G Tour Ultras, but I guess they just have too much to live up to from the old D/T Tour Ultras. These definitely need break in and are cutting my ankle. I'm going to send them back and get the TPU-X based on what I've seen in this forum.

I have a few questions for the TPU owners:
1. Are all color variations now selling as rev 2? I heard that there was some old stock left on rev 1, but I want to make sure I get the new release. How do I tell?

2. I would really like to get the white and black combination, but I am left-handed and it is only sold as a right-handed option. It is my belief that since all heels and soles are interchangeable, therefore if I wanted to buy a left-handed slider sole and left handed push off sole, I could for minimal cost (circa $30) convert the right-handed white/black into a left-handed pair. Is that true or false?

Other constructive comments also solicited.
Thanks in advance

You're welcome.  It has been perfect for me.


Curious to see how they look with the Powerstep. Can you post a pic?

The Powerstep gives the traction shoe a wider base, so it looks different than your sliding shoe for sure, but frankly, who cares?  It protects my shoe from coming apart at the toe, and gives me the traction I want.  It's going to make any shoe look wider with an extra strap across the top whether it's a Brunswick, Dexter, or any other shoe.  Being right handed, I line up with my left foot (slide foot) anyway so I rarely even look at it.

Every so often someone else asks me what that thing is on my right shoe and I tell them it's for traction.  They are usually bowlers that wear shoes that have slide soles on both feet so it's foreign to even think that one shoe isn't the same as the other.  I'm not intending this to be an advertisement for the Powerstep, but it does it's job for myself and others I know that use it.
