these were easy to install and seem to be a more durable alternative. they have great bite on ice, but poor trail conditions leave me without enough real feedback to make a definate call. with bare patches on the trail, and light coverage on the connecting streets, i am a bit concerned as to what might be left of the carbide inserts. if they're still there, i would have to give these 5+ stars for durability.
The skags were darn close to fitting. If you have a little skill, these are fine, you'll get them to work. My sled was a 99, so I'm wasnt expecting them to fit perfect. Other than a little hole modification to the skis, they're fine.
These were listed as an "exact fit" for my '93 Indy Trail. But the shape of these bars was too curvy for the stock metal skis on my sled.With my vice and some effort, I got them straightened out adequately. The 1/2 in ch bars did not fit up through the front of the skis without enlarging the hole in the skis. Also, the diameter of the studs was too large to fit through the holes my skis. I had to enlarge the holes. So, I got them on but not without some modifications.
is this price for a single wear rod or is this a pair? The reason I ask is I thought I was ordering 2 pair earlier this year and 2 packages showed up with one wear rod in each package. I can not find in this add where the qty per package is stated. maybe I was mislead with the picture showing 2 wear rods.
