Heard the Starbites are much better.

Wow!   How often do you fish?

Never lost any starbite cleats. But I tried the alumibites and lost a ton of them. The starbite cleats are the ticket[thumb]

Brookie,

Obviously not enough!  Between 15-20 full days a year, most on Mill Creek.

Ditto to this. Tried the aluminum’s and they wore down fast on me. The starbites I think I’ve lost maybe 1 a season? Bought 2 packs maybe 7-8 years back and just now finishing off the second pack. I did use Orvis and Simms studs both for 1 season in the middle just to try but they were horribly worn down before that season was over. Back to the starbites I went

My Caddis Premium two tones waders arrived today....they are roomy, light, seem sturdy and well designed. Seem comparable to $200 waders in design and features. Hope they hold up....I can be clumsy.
Now for the boots. Oh, and some Starbite cleats. 😉

I just bought a pair of Simms G4 Boa and need to buy some cleats. What would you recommend (aluminum or steel) and where is the best place to buy some?

Ordered my Simms Freestones today. Cabelas didn't have Starbites or Hardbites only aluminium. Will likely get the Hardbites with carbide tips from Flyshack.com

Found the cleats, studs, and lots of flyfishing supplies at Mcflys in White Oaks by UHC. Picked up an Umpqua chest pack for my son.
Lots of tying supplies and some of Elkfisher Daves flies.
Prices were the same as online.

Small suggestion on losing cleats. Spray them down with loctite or brush small amount of 5 min epoxy on screw. The cost of Simms cleats are too pricey to be replacing each trip.
