Merwin: "Get Studs"

Field & Stream columnist and MidCurrent editorial board member John Merwin notes the trend toward offering screw-in studs as part of manufacturer’s “green sole” offerings, and suggests that despite being very unfriendly to your guide’s drift-boat deck (don’t try it), they put the ‘grip’ in grippy. “Most makers either are or soon will be offering hard-metal studs with rubber wading soles. These sharp metal points combine with rubber-sole lugs to give traction substantially better than felt on just about any wet surface. And they are considerably easier to clean.”
