In particular, with these backers on the sled, stopping distance is significantly reduced. These saved me and my sled my first trip out when several deer decided to block the trail on an old rail-bed. There is no way I would have missed them without this setup in my track.
I have several sleds with traditional stud set-ups and one with these backers. The difference is pronounced in traction. These are also easier on the track by reducing rotating mass and spreading the force across more of the track.
The only downside is installation. I learned from others and built on their advice and got them in OK and only ruined a couple studs (out of 154) in the process. The trick is to soak the backers in soapy hot but not too hot water, spraying a little WD 40 or another lubricant on the track where the stud head contacts the track, and having the proper power tools to drive the stud through the backer quickly. It works better with 2 people.
