i went to an auction today and was looking at a 2003 f5, my dad noticed that the inside of the skis had a stud in the inside back corner of each ski. Is this somekind of old school trick for better cornering? any help would be helpful

Maybe scratchers for throwing snow and ice dust onto the track to lessen hifax wear.

Pat is correct. Old timers used to use just a bolt as a cheap ice scratcher. A stud would hold up better though.

also combats darting as it creates slight drag at rear of skis, similar to a deep keel on slalom skis :div20:

Cheap solution for hard and icey trails to throw snow up on skid. Just be careful when hitting rocks, asphalt, concrete etc.. tearing a stud out of a track is one thing.....tearing it out of a ski is another.

It's done up here late in the spring when early morning trails are glazed over, it would destroy your sliders in a few miles. Simply install a bolt at the rear of your ski's & remove latter on when the trails soften up :cn:
