Saucony XC spikes

    Anyone here use Saucony XC spikes, in particular the Kilkenny XC3 and Shay XC2 ? Any opinions on how they compare to the Asics Hyper XC.

    I am looking to buy them as a gift for someone new to cross-country.

    both very good spikes.The kilkenny being the best selling cross country spike in the states.
    The Shay used to be a very expensive spike but has ome down in price the last year and offers a little more support under the arches.
    The hyper is a little stiffer in the sole but effective in muddy conditions.

    Its like most footwear,down to what the user prefers.

    I cant compare them to the asics but i got the kilkennys XC4 recently and found them brilliant compared to the nike ones i used to wear. Much better grip and feeling even on tough uphills
