- Q & A
I got these for my g3 boots and they make fishing great again. No more accidental spills into the river!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love these little snot rock cutters. If you are fishing rivers with snotty rocks and grime then you know how easy it is to loose your balance and spill your beverage, the absolute worst. Oh and you might break your rod in the fall, but the beer...... I highly recommend these on your boots, i keep an extra set in my bag to hand to homies, after they have fallen of course. Stay upright and stay dry and hydrated.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I got these as a gift for a friend and have some feedback to share: "Cleats are the way to go! I put these cleats on my Freestones and they really changed the performance. While the rubber soles on the boots were great when I was out of the water, when they got really cold they seemed to harden and lose traction in the water. So I added cleats and saw a huge difference in the way the boot performed and my ability to fish with confidence. My only issue with these cleats is that they sell them in 10 packs and Simms recommends a stud pattern with 8 studs a boot. So to correctly set up their stud pattern you have to buy two packs and then have left over studs. But overall a game changer in the water."
I've used Patagonia Rock Grip boots with the aluminum bars, while these cleats take a bit more work since there are more to place, they're designed to fit like a puzzle piece into the treads so I expect them not to pull out like the bars did of the featureless Patagonia soles . And they won't spin like other screw in cleats do, working themselves loose.
Just some advice, get a puck of cleats (10) for each boot.
