Does anyone know how much it might cost to swap out nylon/clip straps for leather straps? I'm assuming it would probably cost the same if someone switched from leather to nylon so that may also be helpful. I've been looking into buying a pair of 2010 Smith pads from a buddy of mine for $250 but the straps are all nylon with plastic clips besides on the boot. Would it be worth it for me to buy these and pay extra to convert or keep shopping?
On a side note, I feel like there should be a forum solely dedicated to pad price checks. I feel like i kind of got ripped off in the past on some older model "sale" gear and I think it might be useful to be able to ask ahead of time. Obviously prices on older/used gear would be highly variable based on the condition but a ballpark estimate would be helpful. Just an idea I've been bouncing around
