Was a stabilcers maxx guy, but after 10 years mine just wore out.   Went with microspikes, but now that I have had them a few years,  I am really starting to dislike them.    I broke the chain on them, and they get loaded up with slush and snow and come off on me.

Going on 8 years with my micro spikes
And I have got my line caught while jigging lol a few times in the chains but Iíll deal with it , I know of 3 pair that the elastrum has broke and they replaced them for the guys , but they say not to leave them on the boots for long periods of time , easy on and off and I have a normal gate , never had stabilizers so I canít comment on them  all I can say after fishing well over
40+ years on my own micro spikes 
 are best thing Iíve had on my feet to date , but if your happy wth stabilizers stick with them

STABILicers MAXX here. I like something I can walk into my wheel house with and not rip up the floor.
It seems to go from zero to hero all some have to do is lie.

Kahtoola owner here. I love them. But it seems they may have some competition. Sportsman Direct has Ice Hopper Creepers. They look like Kahtoola's. But instead of costing $69.95 from Kahtoola site. The Ice Hopper Creepers from Sportsman Direct cost $49.99. Anyone see any differance in them, other than price?

I have no doubt that kahtoola are good. That said, some of the reasons that I went with Stabilizer are; I use them almost as much for climbing jetties in the salt and wading rivers. As to the spikes, I got a box of replacements for not much money and when I lose one, I screw it in with some glue.  They stay in really good after that...More than once I have climbed out of a river gorge that I should have been on Belay to attempt (makes for quite the sight in waders and carrying a flyrod). I got them new on fliebay for dirt cheap and after about 5 years of hard use, I am happy with them. I have had them come loose twice and both times it was user error (hurry to get on the ice). So, maybe kahtoola are better than Stabilizer, but the Stabilizers have worked great for me. When the day comes and I lose or destroy my Stabilizer or lend to one of my kids( and never get them back), I will then look at the kahtoolas and see if they will be as good at rock climbing...
