track chisels

a buddy of mine told me of these track chisels you used to be able to get but i haven't been able to find any. I have an 89 polaris sprint, its a short lug track so studding is pretty much out of the question. These chisels are titanium and they are like plates that you apparently run in the middle of the track every other lug. Any information on these things and where i may even find some would help. Thanks

Why can't you run studs? We run studs in tracks with way shorter lug than yours

I believe what you are talking about are Hooker Plates! They were welded to the track clips!They gave THE best traction, because the clip is where the most weight is! And you can get 5/8 tp over 1 1/4" long studs for them! They really are Very simple. About 1" x 3/16" stock about 2" long with either 3 or 2 holes that are taped 1/4 X 20!

The old school hooker plates are the ones to have. But you will wreck them on the trails. They had a old school bar called a power scoop? That you could attach to every other bar on the track . But that's only for powder and that was way back in the day before paddle tracks
