Head Studs

All I've ever used in the past are the ARP's. But, in a recent search I found a different brand. I came across a brand called "Xotic". They advertise to have the same strength and such as the ARP's. But, I can't find anyone who has used them or reviews.

The only reason they're appealing is that they are HALF the price of ARP's with the same strength numbers...

Does anyone here have any input?

Thanks, Jake

Re: Head Studs

I found cheaper studs when I was searching for my ARP's but decided THAT wasn't really where I wanted to go cheap, too many chances for things to go horribly wrong
