Does anyone know anything about the material they are made from? It's called "american pacific-coast wood of the hemlock tree". Never heard of that. But the ad says that it is hygroscopic - which is the most important thing, isn't it?
Does "Seeadler" ring any bells? (Apart from that it is a bird?)

They look identical to the epics from the group buy thread. They are good, but be forewarned, the epics from cedarville run VERY Big. I just got 2 new pair of 9D shoes, and they are too small for the MED epic trees.

I think that Hemlock wood tends to hold sap in it, so just to be on the safe side I think I would stick to Cedar.
