Get a grip

Sporting Shooter - - Product News -

It’s fi­nally start­ing to feel a lit­tle more win­try; the morn­ings are fresher and the tem­per­a­ture is be­gin­ning to drop. ‘Hur­rah!’ we hear you cry. But, amidst long­ing for ‘proper’ win­ter weather, let’s not for­get the per­ils that ar­rive with it – namely, ice. Noth­ing will wipe that cheery smile off your face quicker than strid­ing out on a frosty morn­ing, head and spir­its held high, only to hit ice in your worn-out old boots; bruised bot­toms and egos all round. Su­pa­tracks, ex­perts in ter­rain ac­cess so­lu­tions, pro­vide an in­ge­nious so­lu­tion to this old prob­lem with their Best Grip boot studs. As long as you have man­aged to re­tain a measly 6.2mm of tread on the ‘old re­li­ables’, then you can screw in a few Best Grip studs and en­joy re­newed (and im­proved) grip and con­fi­dence. The studs, which come in three lengths to suit vary­ing needs and ter­rains, ef­fec­tively pre­vent you slip­ping on icy or slick

ground, and also pro­vide ex­tra grip to aid your progress when walk­ing on moss, wet tim­ber, sea­weed and wet grass. They can be screwed into any kind of boots, wellies or waders, and come with a tool to help you eas­ily at­tach them. They have a wide plane helix thread pro­vid­ing op­ti­mum re­ten­tion in the boot ma­te­rial, and the tungsten car­bide core is both sock­eted and mi­cro-brazed into the stud car­rier to pro­vide in­cred­i­ble dura­bil­ity.

Our shoot­ing ex­pert, Will Ed­wards says: “It’s been a real chal­lenge get­ting around on the shoot­ing es­tates this sea­son – a cross be­tween off-road rally driv­ing and an SAS train­ing ex­er­cise. It’s go­ing to get a lot colder, pos­si­bly freez­ing at night; th­ese studs will then come into their own.”

RRP: 66p per stud; £20 for set of 20, in­clud­ing in­stal­la­tion tool; £42 for set of 50, in­clud­ing in­stal­la­tion tool­pa­
