been wearing the aquastealths (simms l2) and they are OK. lately in SE PA we've been getting the ground warm up from the sun and soften the upper layers making mud on ice. i've landed on my ass three times in the last two weeks. I even sprained my neck from doing so (hurt for like three days) - i'm getting old. anyway - i'm putting screws in the boots and never not using studs no matter what. even in boulder fields - there may be a slight slip with the studs on dry rocks they always catch.
also have orvis battenkill felt studded. for the money, simms flet studded freestones are the best boot on the market ($110)
i just had orvis gift certs last time i got new boots.

I have korkers so I switch out for different situations. Usually though just the felt sole in the summers and either rubber or rubber cleated in the winter.

Right now I've got felt with studs. My next pair will more than likely be Aquastealth with studs.

I have Simms Guides; one pair studded felts, and one pair studded Aquastealth. I really liked the Aquastealth better than the felts, and then two years ago, I installed additional tungsten studs on the Aquastealth, and NOW do I have a pair of great boots. The tungsten studs which Simms sells are screw heads, whereas the original studs in the boots were small pins. The additional screw heads did the trickl.

I prefer felt, but will eventually change to some other material if it becomes available. The reason I'll change is that felt moves bad thing like whirling disease and dydmo to other streams and I don't always have the stuff I need to clean them up properly.

Regular ole felt for me. Would like to have some studs. My next pair will have studs, especially fishing in the winter.

Simms Guide Studded Aquastealth hands down the best sole foe NWPA, snow, ice, mud, and even slimy rocks. A little more slippery on Oil Creek than Felt with studs but still better than just plain felts. These boots have lasted me now almost three years. Sole is not worn, this sole is durable, topside is warn, and will be the probable failing point. Down side is few boots out there with studded Aquastealth being made.
