    Are you a pace bowler or a spinner? If you're a spinner, I'd suggest half and half. Otherwise, I'm sure most pacemen would recommend full spikes.

    Yup, I'm a spinner and I have full spikes. Actually this reminds me, some need replacing. ATM I've got three random rubbers in.

    Full spikes, if you get half spikes you'll go **** up when you hit the crease.

    Asics are a good shoe...I've always had trouble with the Puma's falling to pieces.

    Latest pairs of Pumas have hurt my feet, before then they've been pretty good. Everyone who has Asics seems to love them, otherwise take in a pair of runners and get spikes put on the bottom of them. Pretty expensive though.

    I wanna do it with a pair of volleys, just to hear the sledging when you come out to bat with volleys on.

    If you went with the volleys you'd have to be the coolest player on the face of the planet! haha

    I'd hate to try and bowl 20-odd overs in them though, they're heavy buggers.

    My mate has the Gel 8 For and says they're really comfortable. I have a full-spike but it's not the high cut - I think they're the 150 not out.

    Have separate spikes for batting and bowling.

    Full spikes for bowling. Half spikes (not on heel) are okay for batting.

    To be fair, sometimes finances can dictate otherwise. If you are a pace bowler, precedence should be put on the full spikes, and if you want another pair for batting, go the half spike.

    I've never used anything other than full spikes, and I've never really found them to be a hindrance to batting.
