[Cdt-l] crampons vs. microspikes for NOBO hike?

Micro-Spikes worked great for me in the San Juans in early June of 2010 and in late July of 2011 in the Winds. I was very glad to be using them. I wish I had them on the PCT. I have never tried the KTS crampons. they look nice but cost another $100 and weigh another 6 or 7 ounces. They appear to be more awkward to pack. Just some things to think about.
Happy hiking,
