This is the first time I have ever replaced cleats on my boots. I usually just buy a new pair. Decided to try these new cleats and it made my boots like new again. I spent two days on the water since installing the new cleats and I think they may be better than the original that came with by Cabela's guide boots.
I am on my second set of these studs, they grip ok but do tend to wear fast. While they are not carbide they do appear to work and so far I have not been failed by them. My only concern at this point is that I am thinking I could buy the same screws in an average hardware store. Will be looking into thiss option.
