hey is it legal to use blade studs such as adidas predator absolutes (£130 :p from t'internet) in the lower divisions. cos i'm not sure if i need to get another pair of specialised rounded studs for my boots.

Blades aren't allowed in Scotland anymore, the SRU banned them I think. A couple refs I had last year made our full back change is boots. I think blades can do some damage.

yep, last season peter bracken of london wasps completely split his kneecap open on a stud, although they can offer beter traction on the soft ground n all :wacko:

I think it all depends on how you feel after you do that to someone, its either guilt or joy.

I personally won't ever go near them.

nice, but personally i like the boots traille's wearing in this pic, the nike legends in that colorway. last season i used mercurials, but they tended to give me blisters. very accurate for field goals if i remember... :lol:

you reckon the mercurials are accurate for goal kicking?

cuz ive been looking into them and they have a really narrow kicking area.. me being a goal kicker im gonna look into either the mercs or the total 90's for my soft ground and i need to make sure that whatever boot i do decide on is good for goal kicking

Aye, total 90's are what I got, they work, and I love them. Though they were very expensive for me.
