Default IGrip studs..any good?

I went to Haydays this last weekend and came across this booth called igrip studs. Seemed interesting all you do is pre drill a hole in the lugs of your track and drive the screw stud into them. I dont now how they would hold up. As I'm debating on putting 84-96 studs on my 2011 rush 600. These are about $140 for 100 screws studs. Anyone ever use these before? Would appreciate any feed back, thanks

Yeah haydays is always a blast I try an go every year. On the igrips subject I would be concerned about the lug ripping/twisting off especially on hard packed snow or on ice.As your suspose to drill 3/4 into the middle of the lug to insatll. I know sometimes normal studs pull out and you just replace the stud. If the lugs rip off..cant replace them Thinking I may end up using extreme max studs as I hear they're good quality and very reasonable on price.

I know a guy who used them in tracks on his side by side and they worked well in that application, low speed , Before installation on a glare snow packed road or ice it was dangerous. He also has a few short ones in his insulated rubber boots for ice fishing. Work great in that application. On a sled I don’t know how they would work but would want a personal reference I trust.

Seen similar devices thru the years, they would fly out and occasionally ripped the crap out of the lugs, saw a couple sleds with holes in the heat exchangers caused by screw-in studs.

What is the difference between the camso ice tracks besides them being molded in?
