Track lug studs

Has anyone used these, and if so, how reliable are they? Me and a buddy are both wondering. These are the threaded (screw in) type that go right into the lugs.

Check out Trail Grabbers, They have a web page www.bergstromskegs.com. This site has me convinced that they are worth trying. Cheaper, easily replaced.

There's a good article on these in the new Snow Tech. Bottom line, according to the article, is that they're more for sled stability (on ice and hardpack) that all out traction. Also, they say be wary of them on high horsepower sleds. I have a zr800 I want to stud this year, and I'm probably going to end up with a combination of conventional studs and tls's.

I used bergstroms track lugs the last 2 seasons and have had good results. Their not gonna hook up like push throughs but for trail riding they work great. I lost only 8-10 in 2 seasons. Had 240 installed.
