At Pine Top this past weekend I visited with Paul at VTO Saddlery and wouldn't you know that he had something new that I just had to try... For anyone that loves spending countless minutes bent over going through the several steps necessary to clean, tap, re-clean, and then line-up and crank in your studs, this is not for you. But for the rest of us that want a quick and easy way to go about the stud process Paul has found a winner. The MV Fastuds are self-tapping and the tool that comes in the set not only does a quick debris sweep of the hole it also holds and tightens the stud into place. They're amazing! Try them...your back will thank you.
