Couldnt believe that despite all the advancements in technology they were still fumbling with pins at the olympics....Had two shirts ruined by pins now..Pulls the threads and is clearly damaged after removal..The sooner a better alternative to this ancient method is invented the better..
there's a German firm that do Magnets
Really!! Thats sounds much more promising :O)..Vorsprung pin technik hey....I shall look into that further..Thanks Foxy Davy.
there's a German company that does them plastic coated & coloured - you can even get smiley yellow acid faces
I dont know what other runners tops are made of, but I can categorically say that they have certainly damaged some of mine..With the price of decent breathable running tops these days an alternative method such as magnets is a must..
They will have to be really strong magnets to stay on I would have thought..As long as I dont run past too many iron pylons (bye bye pb) they might do the job :O)
personally I do use pins but have no shortage of shirts to wear as every race seems to give 'em away & have had to start donating wicking running shirts to charity.
As I only did 2 5k's 2 years ago it's nots bothered me that much but the pins did put holes in 2 new shirts, would the magnets not chaff?
Good Question on magnet chaffage ? no idea ?
