SOLD...I have two brand new pair with tags of the MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoes in the 25" size for sale. They are the latest design with the split toe crampon and 4 straps. They are matte black in color. I'm asking $200 for each pair including shipping in the lower 48. Payment is via Paypal.

Just to be totally sure... are they compatible with the modular tails? Older ones are not...
Yes, these are compatible with the tails.
I see these are both sold, but wanted to ask Janos why you thought you needed the tails? I've had LA25s for years, and am not a small person, and have never needed any more than the snowshoe itself.
I do a lot of snow camping here in the cascades and I have found that even with my atlas 10x30 snowshoes I can post hole pretty bad in powdery snow. I weigh 215 and with a winter pack I am probably in the 250-260 range easy. I know for a fact that the 25" length would not give me adequate flotation for all my needs.
I weigh about the same, but I think east coast snow is probably wetter, and less float is needed.Have fun if you bought one of these pair!
