DATA-232 misread the rules and introduced a bug: "Boots of String & Springing" should in fact be straight Acrobatics +5

Description

states
"Per PFCR p503 "She can jump with a +5 competence bonus on Acrobatics checks" - bonus specifically to jumping."
this is wrong, the restriction to Jumping is DND 3/3.5 only and not Pathfinder.

"These boots increase the wearer's base land speed by 10 feet. In addition to this striding ability (considered an enhancement bonus), these boots allow the wearer to make great leaps. She can jump with a +5 competence bonus on Acrobatics checks. "

The +10' to land speed will also, in general, increase the Jump variant of Acrobatics.
