  1. They don’t last


    These lasted I trip on the river and they were completely worn off to bare nubs, unfortunately I didn’t realize this until the second trip. They were so worn down that they were nothing more than nubs, I tried I ended up falling and busting a rod. Save time and money and get some hex head screws at the hardware store, at least you won’t cringe when you need to replace them.
  2. Poor studs


    I have used these studs for a few years now without much complaint. However this year I fished for one week on the toughest salmon river there is, lower Yokanga, and I completely wore new studs flat within the week. LY involves lots of walking over boulders day in day out and for next year I have sourced another stud with a tungsten core, hopefully they will last longer in such conditions.
  3. Highly recommended


    I highly recommend spending the extra cash to save your a$$ on slippery rocks, felt or Vibram.
  4. Excellent


    best cleat on the market
  5. Hard Bite Studs - Felt


    I just completed a week of "Tough Fly Fishing" on remote streams and rivers in Idaho. Polished Granite stone covered with Moss was the daily wading adventure. My fishing partners convinced me to buy Studs, since this was their annual trip to the area and my first. I applied the Studs to my Simms Guide Wading Boots and was extremely pleased with the results. Another Simms success story - Thanks!
  6. Backpacking


    I have applied the cleats to my backpacking boots to help with slippery rocks during stream crossings but also found them super helpful when walking over slick, polished granite in the Sierras.
  7. The best of product


    This the 1st year I have used these studs aND YHIS IS THE BEST THING EVER. My friend has them for a few years and they show hardly any wear. Great product keep them coming
