I put a Storm 150 with 1.625" Mack Mega Studs on my 17 ReneX 850, works great! No problems with clearances. Awesome grip!80a8781beca428fcd550e9cc274b8ca5.jpgde8de2d551f581eae12415b9282191de.jpg

Got 3500 km on my Ice Storm and luv it. We just had a buds tunnel welded because of a lost stud through it (2nd time). I won't run studs because of that and find the ice tracks are fine for me.

Well, Bar and TIC just help make up my mind. Instead of studding the rip2 1.25 i'm just going to get a storm 1.5. For the cost it makes the most sense to me.

This is my concern with studding in general. I've seen it all to often. 

 

I was going to ask ice strom vs. storm but that question was already answered earlier in the thread.

When it comes to studs, they have to be installed correctly and checked after first trip for tightness and at least once a season after that. Also have to be smart and not rip across payment, logs ect. I have never lost a stud in 50+ years of snowmobiling. Try it without studs and if you want more traction, you can always stud later. I prefer double backers for studing and find that Woody's Studs have worked the best for me. Your going to luv that track.

I will never run conventional studs ever again in my life, not even on a dare. But I agree, the 1.25 Ice Ripper that came on my 900t is junk. The sled has way too much torque for that track. The Storm 150 sounds great, but I'd get an Ice Storm 150.

have never lost a stud in 50 years of riding on 35+ different sleds. Buy good studs[woodys] and a torque wrench. hey gadejethro, my fellow granite stater, buy the 2 ply storm and stud it. I would never buy another ice storm unless I lived where there was little or no ice, that sure isn't NH, especially this year.  Good luck !

1.5 is the best trail track, it's the new standard. I have the new ice ripper 1.5 on my 2020, it's amazing on the trail.

My problem is not really losing studs but tearing tracks. I've torn 3 of them in my sledding past. I will admit that when I stopped using square backers and studding the outside that I stopped ripping tracks. Always installed Woodys with a high quality torque wrench. My last two sleds I studded to BRP's exact specifications (single ply Grand Masters in their approved pattern) and did not have any track damage for over 12000 miles but I've still got that bad taste in my mouth. I really love the prestudded tracks to be honest.

It's all personal choice,  I spent the last 30k miles unstudded or with an icecobra in NH and ME.  I got rid of studs after breaking a bunch on a low snow trip to pittsburg and never looked back.

I have the ripsaw 2, 1.5" track on my sled.. It's by far the best mod I've done. It feels like the sled gained 20 HP because of the increased traction. WAY better in deep snow too. 

X2 for the ripsaw 2, 1.5"  2ply,  night and day better than 1.25" that comes from factory, wish doo would step up to these better more durable tracks.

Wanted more traction than I was getting from my 1.25 pre-studded ripsaw with added trail studs 2 per bar. So I did some research and decided the Storm 150 2 ply with double backers and 4 studs every other bar was what I wanted. Checked weight of both tracks with studs installed and the Storm 150 was 2 ozs lighter, virtually the same weight as the one ply pre-studded Ripsaw with added studs.. This track just plain ROCKS, I have never had traction on snow like this before. When I used to hit a rise and nail it, it would spin, now it grabs, pulls the skis and launches you off the top of the rise. If you are thinking about a new track, for trail riding or some off trail excursions, this track will not disappoint. This track has a lug height of 1.25 on the outside and 1.50 in the middle with large stiff lugs/scoops. If you want traction for trail riding, this track will put a smile on your face.

 

Bob

so what is the logic of every other? seems to me you would be better off spreading out the forces more,

Just the pattern and amount of studs I wanted to use. This set up hooks.
