poor stud quality

I recently purchased 192 Saber traction monster 1" studs and installed them in my 2001 mxz 800. After 125 miles, I looked at the studs for wear and found that over 140 of the studs had lost a majority of their carbide (broken off below the steel collar. I immediately called the Saber and was told that it was my problem, not their's. I informed them that i was certain that either this product was inferior in quality or manufactered incorrectly (not to specs). The interesting piece of the puzzle is that i rode all of the 125 miles with a friend who has the same type of stud (traction masters) produced by Woody's. After close inspection of his studs, we found that he had not lost on piece of carbide (not even a chip). I will let you, the reader, draw their own conclusion. I sure wish this company would at least stand behind it's products. Don't get me wrong, i have had their top dog stainless studs and been very satisfied. Have any of you heard of similar problems. Please reply or let me know of any other areas on the net which i can post this piece.

Re: poor stud quality

I had the same problems with their studs... "guarenteed not to bend or break" my anus. I have switched to FasTrac and haven't had a problem since... I will NEVER, EVER buy ANYTHING from Saber again.

This has been on AmSnows site also. It appears that Saber's quality tanked. I don't believe Saber has warrantied their product for anyone.
