p>The most similar shoe in the Scarpa range would be the Furia, however the Drago is much more than just a Furia with one less velcro strap. It has the same legendary heel construction as the Instinct VS and an extended rubber cover above the toe area. The heel construction gives it an advantage over the Furia in heel hooking, and increases the tension throughout the shoe. As a result the Drago will usually have the performance edge over the Furia. On the other hand the softer construction of the Furia is generally considered more comfortable and so the Furia may be preferred for longer session and multi-pitch routes. The Scarpa Drago is expected to be a hit with competition climbers and boulderers.
