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!

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
