If you look at woodys site they call triggers a competition stud, but here is what roetin says about there studs (Our Hornet carbide trail studs are second to none.) but at the end of the day its the race organizing commitee thats make the call and keeps it fair for everyone,they do a great job every year

From the website about Hornets
"These are the most advanced studs on the market. There is no other stud to match them:
They have a rimless tip to reduce float and improve penetration
They have a thinner barrel to reduce weight and improve penetration
They have a larger, thinner head to make flush installation easier
70 degree point provides plenty of bite for control"

Woody and Stud boy trail studs are 60 degree and none of them compare to the 70 degree Hornets its such a difference when on hard ice with two exact same machines and setup you would swear one had chisels!

My 3 cents a trail stud is 60 degree

I've used Gold diggers and Hornets at Sutherlands and too be honest the Gold diggers were better once the Ice got spun up,And very little difference on good ice.Its the stud penetration/ track Lug height that counts with Trail studs on Glare ice.

Nice! I personally feel the kids need to be involved in some way...great for our sport and its RE. GROWTH

Thanks Todd

My 3 cents a trail stud is 60 degree
On stud point the smaller the number the sharper the stud. ( ie. 45 degree being sharpest, 60 degree next, 70 degree next and 80 degree being the most blunt with good wear but less hook up. Think of a 90 degree angle and go down from there. So the 70 degree tip is not as sharp as a 60 degree tip. Same goes for ski carbides ,the 60 degree are sharper than 90 degree.

What I was getting at is the 70 degree hornets are rimless most trail studs are not

FYI is anyone doesn't know what they are talking about with the difference in the studs...

Woodys Gold Diggers ( obviously the gold colored stud) have a 60 deg head as compared to the Roetin Hornet with a 70 deg head.
You can see on the top of the stud just below where the carbide tip is attached the angle of the stud. The Roetin has a rimless tip and also has such a long shank that the penetration is close to twice what the gold digger is.
Holy crap Im bored....
lol
