What are the differences between the MSR Evo and and the Lightning Flash snowshoes. Do they perform the same? Is one better than the other in light, soft, deep snow or on an already beaten trail? I'm trying to narrow down my search.
SunnySports S Great question! There are actually a couple of differences between the two. The Lightning have better traction, while the Evo's just have regular side rails and claws. If you are not going on steep terrian the Evo's are probably better for you. However the Evo's make a little more noise because they are plastic and the Evo's are a bit heavier than the Lightning. The Evo's have the option of 6" tails while the Lightning only have the option of 5" tails so in non-steep deep trail powder the Evo's are prbably better. Stay safe and have fun out there! Neal
