Today on the Catshack Reports we are posting up our review of the new Exalt Cleats after testing them out while reffing and after a day of play at a local scenario event. You will first notice the traditional Exalt color, neon green, is subdued by the main color of black, but these cleats are very attractive. Tons of features and cool looks, what more can you ask forů

TRX Features:

Features:

* 7 Spike locations in the forefoot of the out sole
* 3 Spike locations at the heel of the out sole
* Flexible out sole design allows better traction when crawling
* Available in US Sizes 9, 10, 11, 12, 13

Cleats Include:

* 22 Turf spikes
* 22 Mud & dirt spikes
* Spike tool
* Cleat Bag

Day 1

The first thing I noticed when I put these on was how light they were. So much lighter than the Landsharks I have worn for the past year or so. The shoe is form fitting to your foot due to the utterly flexible materials used to make the sole of the cleats. I was shocked when I did not have foot fatigue like I normally do after running around for a day with cleats laced up on my feet.

The terrain I was on for the first day of testing ranged from manicured natural grass to weeds that have been known to swallow up the unsuspecting player wandering around. The dirt and sod were not dry but also not wet enough to be considered muddy conditions either. I would simply state it was a damp dirt that stuck to the actual cleats but easily fell off after a step or two. So, while running around doing paint checks and calling players out I did not slip a single time. So fearing this was due to the players mostly playing on the weedy field of the meadow I decided to go out to the picnic area, on the low side of the field where water is known to sit and cause soupy conditions. I borrowed a soccer ball from my kids and proceeded to kick it around while making cuts back and forth to see how the overall shoe would handle muddy conditions. To my surprise the cleats held strong, as if they were not even on a slippery grass and mud combination. Being a person who has broke an ankle in the past my only complaint so far is the lack of ankle support, but in reality not many of us need the extra support like I do.

Day 2

Enter the rain! The second day of testing proved to be one of the best tests you can throw at a pair of cleats to test out the traction claims. I took a trip to play Korea: The Forgotten War north of Pittsburgh Pa when the god of paintball thought it would amuse them to send rain storms our way, no not the entire day just off and on for the entire day. Enough rain fell to turn the paths leading to and from the field into a soupy mess that tested traction with mud that became as deep at 3 to 4 inches deep. So laced up and tied a little tighter than I normally tie my cleats I ventured off to the field. The first test was the dreaded wet, wooden bridge that is usually very slippery with normal cleats. I purposely tried to slide my feet around but was surprised that I had much more traction than I did with my Landsharks. So off to the re-spawn/start box I went with my team where I found myself at the top of a hill with a decent grade. The mission was to get to a designated bunker and hold it but the enemy was also in sight and about the same distance from this bunker. With the blow of the whistle I saw people slipping and sliding as I ran past them to get to the right of the bunker to offer support and suppressive fire for those in the bunker. Not once did I slip while traversing down the hillside covered in loose mud with little to no vegetation. Another mission had me running uphill and I had just as much traction in the mud.

The only issue I had was user error. I forgot to torque down the replaceable spikes and thus lost a few as I was running around. If you forget to tighten these down the movement and pivots of your foot can untighten the cleats and you will thus loose a few. I learned from my mistake and shall not do that again. All that is left is to clean off the massive amount of mud and debris on the cleats.

This is an item I highly recommend. Be it speedball where the lawns/turn is manicured or in the woods of you favorite field these cleats will give you the needed traction you desire. Thank you for the item to review goes out to the guys at Exalt. Another great product from a great company.

I gave appearance 4 stars because they are only available in one color scheme. However, the one color they chose (limeish green and black) is quickly becoming one of my favorites thanks to Sly and Exalt.

These shoes are nothing short of incredible. There have been a dozen different paintball shoes made over the years from some of the biggest names in paintball (JT and Dye for example) but none have come close to being what the players need: light with great traction. These deliver those qualities in spades.

You can always find cheaper shoes, but you won't find shoes with better traction. I've used similar golf spikes for years but the shoes themselves were more expensive and certainly weren't as comfortable or made for paintball. They often weren't dark colors and they picked up stains that could even be mistaken for hits.

I played indoor with them this weekend and completely forgot I was playing on turf. I didn't slip or miss my footing once. I highly recommend these to anyone in the market for paintball shoes that actually make sense.

Most spikes fit way small. All the previous pairs of spikes I've owned, I had to go up at least one size. These are right on sizing wise.

Pros: lightweight, traction, fit
Cons: thinness, lace length
For the longest time I resisted buying paintball specific shoes thinking any old cleat would do the job. I finally purchased a pair and now I'm convinced. They feel fantastic and they have great traction. I used them at world cup in 2011. Never did I feel I was sliding. Starts off the break are solid.

Some minor issues I have with the shoes are I'm not used to how little support there is in the footbed. I'm more accustomed to traditional running shoes. However, I will admit that once I wore them and started playing I didn't notice the difference at all.

The other issue I have is that the laces are really long. After tying the shoes, I have to tuck the excess into the laces near the toe.

Overall, I'm quite pleased with the shoes and find that they're a great value when you consider they come with a full extra set of cleats, a cleat tool, and a storage bag. Neither of my concerns would disuade recommending these to a friend.

Our team has been using these cleats this whole season and loved them. We've played with them on turf, clay, grass, and loose-pack dirt. They've always adapted well and work great. We think they look great and work better. I've noticed that over the season, they've stretched a bit and were a bit looser though. I remedied this with wearing a slightly padded soccer sock to take up that extra room. It also makes them much more comfortable.

Cleats work amazing on indoor turf, grab just the right amount without causing my foot to stick in (using indoor spikes). Have not tested the outdoor spikes to date.

I have broken about 5 of the indoor spikes during the first and second uses; however Exalt took care of it and sent me an extra bag of indoor spikes. I do expect to break the outdoor spikes during normal use, but since they are cheap to replace I am happy to do so.
