    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?)

    You can also get them in cedar. They are quite good!

    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.
