added concern about the 32s is they were slick on rocks when wet i only took them hiking and not dg but usually that translates over to wet teepads

still waiting on my 40s in the mail

If I can score a deal on these, I'd be all over it:

my 40s just came in the mail today

40s all day over 32s

32 would be good for hiking or walking when wanted the authentic barefoot feel

40s are heavier duty and grip waaay better however i roamed around in my yard which was wet they dont grip nearly as well as the continental sole on the terrex but better than the 32

i will try dg with these but i dont see them having great long term durability

the price point seems fair for these 40s however you might spend 25 better if you waited for certain brands/styles to get clearanced out

odd comment would be the 32s come with extremely long shoe laces and the 40s have the locking system which also subtlety makes the 40s better in my opinion

My terrex ax2 suck when the tee pads are wet which is every morning at my course down the street. I don’t necessarily need goretex but am curious if the continental sole is better on the swift.

Yep and got the 40s to see how I like minimalist as all I play is parks with concrete tee pads and if I like it I might move to a minimalist with water reisistance as I haven’t found one with gtx.

last post about these for a while

i threw around with the 40s

the bottom nubs are starting to tear off already like the continental sole terrex but this is after one round of 18

they were comfy af but i doubt these would handle much abuse

i would rate the 40s ability to grip at about 6/10

i slipped out a few times on concrete pads with some sand/dirt on them

once again i think the tsla make better walking/hiking shoes than dg shoes but the price point is fair

40s are way better all around than 32s
