Anyone stud a new XRS or X that has the new 1.50 IR?  Woody's 1.575 Grand Master or Grand Trigger's do not appear to provide any penetration above the lug.  Other options are Stud Boy and Mack.  Would like at least 3/8's in. of penetration.  Anyone have experience with Stud Boy 1.625 or 1.875 Power Point Plus? I have a Woody's 1.575 for reference but do not have the Stud Boy's to confirm which length will work.  

Any real life experience/knowledge is appreciated.

I studdedmy 1.5 ice ripper last season with the mack studs they held up great and worked very well plan to do another one this season. I also believe snowstuds makes a 1.6502d6fb05df023c121e61e472dba63a45a.jpg

What length mack stud did you use and how far over the lug is it?  I don't like that spacer that mack offers.  Why can't you just use a tall aluminum nut?

I like this alternative to single ply studs if there are not any single ply studs long enough.  How much stud is over the top of lug with the 1.75?  I would consider using 1.75 Lake Racers with a traditional/standard double plate for more penetration.

I believe they were 1.650". I wasnt a fan of the spacer deal at first but they worked fine none broke or bent but im sure you could do tall nuts if you wanted. They have a 5 year bend or break warranty.

And the smaller regular head studs have proven to be faster, then the large headed single ply studs.  We do the same thing.

Curious if the spacers are steel or aluminum?
