i have the evo ascents. i like em alot, though if weight is an issue you might want to look at the lightnings. they have really good float, and while they do have the additional tails, the one tim ei have put them on, i had them on for lik e15 minutes before i ripped em off, i felt like they made everything more awkward

i think the lightnings are supposed to be the do all backcountry crampon and not the resort model
