I put 8000 miles on fast-trak 80degree stainless carbide studs. I dont know of any stud that has lasted as long and I only had about 25% with worn/broken tips. I ride in Central Ontario and theres lots of rock.

Stainless doesnt rust and the fast-trak have silver soldered tips. I am not sure if the woodys or studmans are.

All stainless studs are pretty much the same price. Around the 2 dollar Canadian (1.50 us) price and another 40 cents for the washers. I have never used the plastic washers so I can comment, but I swear by the aluminum ones. Also the bigger the Head on the stud the better. Look for 1 inch heads. Cheaper studs are 7/8.

I have been running Studman Stainless for the past couple seasons. Absolutely no problems, haven't lost one yet. I am using round aluminum backers.
