I'd suggest trying the carbon guards then. I've had no problems with my DP ones. But I also wear Sidi boots.
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

I sliced up the seams on my SMX-5 boots that way. I ended up covering the edges of the heel guards in gorilla tape last season and that seemed to work out. Yesterday I used a file to knock down/round off the sharp edges so we'll see how that works.

I cut the sharp edges off the stock aluminum heel guards on a grinder then bent the tips slightly. Re-beadblasted them and there good to go now. Still rub a lightly on my Axial Pro in's, but not tearing them up now. The carbon heal guards might be in the future but I hear there not as rigid as the aluminum. Not sure if that's an issue or not.
