Neither... Verdon brings to mind long vertical technical limestone in other words a shoe not designed with plastic in mind. If that was your intended purpose I'd say go with laces because you won't be taking them off all the time and they'll allow you to make small ajustments to the fit. They also dont seen to have many eyelets, spreading the laces further apart and making it easier to get the shoe on and off compared to the pinks or the old blanco. The laces also look nicer if that matters.

TC Pro's size similar to the Katana Velcro, which size about a half size smaller than the Futura. So if you're UK 9 in Futura, try 8.5 in the TC Pro.

Just a point on jumping jacks. Research has suggested that some people are hampered in sport and in real life ( think of people who march with their right arm and foot moving together) by not being able to cross the midline of their body. You should coordinate eg left arm with right foot, right arm with left foot. Think of soccer players warming up, running sideways and scissor in their legs. Jumping jacks are therefore the worst possible exercise, as they reinforce left arm/left leg and right arm/right leg coordination, just what you don't want. So warm up linking opposite sides.

A haul loop is usually a small piece of webbing attached to the back of some harnesses and will vary in strength depending on its construction. It's usually used on multi-pitch and bigwall routes for attaching a tag line to haul gear, an extra belay device for belaying the second and rapelling, a chalk bag or even a pair of approach shoes. Its use depends largely on its strength, the practicality of the application and your imagination.

The maximum lifetime of your harness is provided by the manufacturer on its instructions for use leaflet (which can also be found on the manufacturers website) and may varie due to different materials and methods of construction. Be aware that frequency and intensity of use, abrasion, prolonged exposure to sunlight and harsh environments will increase the natural wear of the harness and reduce its lifespan.... (more)

Climbing tape is designed to be applied directly to skin and unless you are allergic to the adhesive you shouldn't have any issues although I doubt its practicality because its neither transparent nor double sided. Unless the idea is walking around with strips of white tape on your boobs?
