Do you hate putting in studs? Have you cursed broken taps, dodgy threads and the ticking away of time at events struggling with uncooperative horses? If so, Ardall has the solution with the new Pro-Fit stud — a breakthrough in stud design.
Quick to fit and simple to remove, the revolutionary, patented design of this new stud allows 8 Pro-Fit studs to be fitted to one horse in less than 2 minutes, show after show after show! Yet despite being so easy to fit and remove, Pro-Fit studs stay securely in place whatever the going, thanks to their unique smooth, tapered design, which combines with a powerful built-in magnet for absolute security.
What’s different about Pro-Fit studs is that they have no thread and so are incredibly easy to fit and remove, week after week. A farrier simply drills stud holes as normal using a standard 7.5 steel conventional bit and then uses the special Pro-Fit drill bit, which allows the hole to be drilled with complete accuracy for a smooth, tapered finish to match the stud. All it then takes is a couple of gentle taps with the Pro-Fit hammer for the stud to be securely fitted into the stud hole. The stud is then removed by a simple twist with the Pro-Fit spanner. Easy!
Made from extremely strong, high tensile stainless steel, Pro-Fit studs won’t rust and remain easy to fit and remove use after use.
The Pro-Fit stud kit retails at €150 (around £136) and includes 16 Pro-Fit studs, plus tools. For a limited period and for purchases at Burghley (5-8 September) you will receive the special Pro-Fit drill bit (sold separately for €60, around £51) for free with every kit. See the Pro-Fit studs for yourself on the Ardall stand at Burghley in The World of the Horse marquee.
