  1. Outstanding

    100%

    I'm retiring a pair of G4's that I beat the daylights out of and just bought a pair of G3's to replace them. The G4's had cleats on them and they still looked good so I removed them for use on the new boots. I've ordered more because I want to add some. I had never checked the tightness of the old ones and some were a little lose but the holes were not stripped and none were lost. Be carful not to over tighten them. The rubber will hold because it's sticky. Just check them now and then.
  2. They've saved my butt!

    100%

    I have used the same set on my Simms Guide boots. I bought them, when the current model first came out. They rock in small creeks, greasy rocks and everywhere else! Still on the first cleats, never had to replace one! I fish 4-6 days a week in the summer and fall.
    I often fish until sunset, and they have saved my butt a few times...
    They give me confidence in water all over the Rockies!
    Thank you Simms!
  3. great product

    100%

    Had these on my last pair of boots. I had the boots for three years. Lost a couple over time due to wear and tear. The traction on these was great on slick river rocks.cant wait to put them on my new boots.
  4. Never buy a simms product ever again

    20%

    First time crossing the river I was missing 2 cleats!

    Replacements wont stay on either.

    After purchasing 3 sets of waders and boots I would never purchase anything again from Simms since they won't refund or replace the boots.

    [Response from Simms Customer Care Team]

    Thank you for your honest review, Moats. We always recommend that you use a small dab of a urethane adhesive, such as Aquaseal, on the threads of those cleats to ensure a lasting fit. Please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-217-4667 with any further concerns you may have.
  5. A good product that provides traction when used with stream tread soles

    80%

    I have used these cleats for over 5 years and they work. Occasionally I loose one. So I carry extra just in case.
  6. Great performance

    80%

    3 years of Steelheading and guiding Big BrookTrout on rocky Canadian rivers as well as Lake Superior tributaries with great hookup on ice, rocks,wood and snow/mud. Still in use with 100s of hours and will likely get me thru a couple more years before replacement. My boots will wear out first.
  7. Cleats fall off

    20%

    The screws wear and the cleats fall off well before the cleats are worn out.
    I have complained about this to Simms on a couple of occasions and after their initial response requesting pictures they have ignored me completely.
    I notice that there is no response to similar comment made here:- WHERE DID THEY GO? REVIEW BY CRAIGSPEY

  8. Going Strong!

    100%

    After 3 seasons of heavy use in Steamboat CO., these cleats are going strong! I haven't replace one and they are still working great!
  9. Classic Hot Dog vs Buns Problem

    20%

    So you sell these in packs of 10... but your install pattern diagram shows 8 being used per boot. So you want us to buy 2 packs and have 4 extras?

    [Response from Simms Customer Care Team] - Thanks Tom. I always carry a few extra just in case one gets ripped out. I've been told that was the intention of the 10 puck.
  10. Mislead

    20%

    I bought new Guide boots and start cleats at the same time. Wouldn't you think that Simms would include in the cleat package enough cleats to install the pattern Simms recommends? I did too. I was wrong. I feel Simms is gaming me.
  11. Where did they go?

    20%

    They work great till the screw or the cleat wears out at the hole/screw. Then you look at the sole & find only the screw in the boot! Seams one of the two metals is too soft for the other & allows the star to slip off the screw.
  12. Can the developmental team count?

    20%

    I bought these at the local fly shop. I went on line to look at the mounting patterns. With or without hardbites, you recommended patterns show 8 per boot, yet only 10 in a pack. I returned them. I gave them a rating of 1 because there was not enough product to use them.
  13. Excellent Traction

    100%

    The Hardbite cleat is the perfect accessory for your boots, especially on those rivers with a very slick surface. the Hardbite is the best thing next to felt soles but with a much more environmentally friendly aspect to them that felt soles lack.
  14. Excellent Cleats

    100%

    These are still working excellent after 3 seasons on the Georgia rocks. Excellent traction, tremendous bite even on wet logs and such. One package of 10 is enough to do a pair of boots, even my size 13's. You don't need them on the entire surface just a few spaced out in strategic locations. The life is incredible, again 3 seasons so far, and plenty of sharp edges left.

    The only downside is they will scratch pretty much ANY surface that they touch, so be careful with areas like finished floors (sorry McDonalds!) and painted door sills in your vehicle.
  15. Too Expensive!

    20%

    What is up with this! Only 10 Cleats in the puck and each puck is $30.00!! 10 cleats is not enough to cover two boots and and can'y afford $60.00 each time to replace. What the Puck!!

    [Response from Simms Customer Care Team]
    Well put Stubby! We have passed this on to our product development team. We appreciate the feedback!
