Dan, you should at least try to go 2 per bar, which is 96 studs however your could get by with 1 per, which would be 48 on a 121" track. You could try going on the Woody's traction products page and they have some pattern examples on there to look at. (at least they used to)!

I was hoping to only use like 50 to 60 studs and skipping a window I made a personal pattern ans am wondering if it would just add a traction 3-2-0-2-3-0-3-2-0-2-3-0-3-2-0 and so on I think I have enough for the whole belt if I did my math right. has ne one else made a homemade pattern?

Try this one, it's for a 48 stud pattern. 2 per bar, skipping every other window. I hope the link works if not I could e-mail it to you. I think this would be the best way for you to go to keep everything balanced. Make sure that the first two studs in the first row are closest together then on the next row space them out a little bit and the same for the third row. Then start over again, this will give your more "scratch lines" and the most traction possible for the studs your installing. Hope I explained that good enough, if not hollar back and I'll try steer you in the right direction! Good luck! grin

Iam not looking for huge gains just some added traction in hard pack snow. If I wanted huge gains I would have bought longer ones and put more in. I got these studs from an old track so no lose for me! So. Im LMAO cuz you cuz wasted a reply.

haha! im like that too just gotta see it for myself!! how long are the lugs on your track? i would go about 3/8 inch longer than the lug if your doing trail/hard snow riding otherwise if your just using it on Washington wink for fishing id go longer....

its a trail sled to so gotta keep them short, we dont use it very much on the ice just a few of them nice days that I dont feel like drivin the truck all over the lake. it has a 1.25" track and I am thinkin that the studs that are 1.325 will fit the bill just fine. 3/8" longer than lug the stud they would have to be 1.75" studs more like dagger to me and they arent cheap!

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
