They've saved my butt! Review by Steamboat David

Steamboat David 4/20/2016

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!

great product Review by CAH

CAH 2/25/2016

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.

Never buy a simms product ever again Review by Moats

Moats 8/28/2015

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.

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.

A good product that provides traction when used with stream tread soles Review by Steve

Steve 8/24/2015

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

Great performance Review by @nakinafishing

@nakinafishing 8/19/2015

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.

Cleats fall off Review by John Hartland

John Hartland 7/7/2015

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

Going Strong! Review by Steamboat David

Steamboat David 5/28/2015

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!

Classic Hot Dog vs Buns Problem Review by Tom

Tom 4/1/2015

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.

Mislead Review by JB

JB 3/13/2015

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.

Where did they go? Review by craigspey

craigspey 12/18/2014

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.
