I have a Fenix 2 which I love but the inverse screen colours and red back-light make it difficult for me to read at night. I never had any issue with the GPS on mine, always seemed fine. Once I get the F3 I'll ebay the F2.
It will be interesting to see how the Connect IQ platform develops for the 920xt, Fenix & Epix.
Ok, I have had a few runs in the Inspire 11's now and I'm glad to report that everything is positive.
The main differences seem to be that while the toe box feels more fitted than the 10's there is less pinching at the bottom of the laces. They seem to flex more naturally across the toe box too. I've compare the uppers with some old Inspire 9's I still have (resigned to kick-about use) and the front's are very similar, while the heels are more like the 10's.
Another positive for me is that the tongue is a bit longer, this has led me to conclude that part of the issue the flex point of the 10's could have been from trying to pull the tongue up.
Initial impressions are that they are very comfortable, of similar weight and big improvement over the 10's (for me at least).
Well the last pair of Inspire 10's suffered the same fate as the previous ones after just over 100 miles. A tiny hole appeared in the same spot, another two runs and I could easily get my fat finger through it.
I've bought and pair of Inspire 11's via Millet Sports on Amazon and had them delivered NYE. Looking forward to a run in them tomorrow (too tired today). I've been wearing them round the house to get the feel for them and I'm happy to report that the uppers are very much like the Inspire 9's, which is no bad thing IMO. They are much lighter than the Paradox's too (still can't get away with these). I'll report back after I get a few miles on them.
Mercedes, for me the size was pretty much spot on with my Inspire 9's, maybe a tiny bit tighter in the toe box but nothing that caused an issue. Going up half a size would have given me clown foot syndrome.
The Paradox aren't vastly different in purpose but are noticeably heavier. They remind me of the Brooks Beast I had a long while ago, lots of support and cushioning.
Role on the 11's and fingers crossed they are a bit more robust.
I'm not really feeling the love for the Wave Paradox, too much support for me and the extra weight is noticeable. I've returned to my remaining pair of Inspire 10's and will use these until they drop to bits (shouldn't be long ).
