Traction. Do you need more on icey or hard packed areas, then stud. other wise if you are happy with the handling than don't worry about it. Its up to you and what you like and your riding conditions.

Do you ever run into icey conditions on the trails. I have never had studs in my sleds untill 2 years ago. Now I will never Run a sled with out them. I like that when I am coming to a stop & there is ice on the trail, I can stop. In the corners I don't have to worry about spinning out. It makes it alot safer & can have some fun out on the lakes. If you never see these conditions then I think it is a waist of money. Some people worry about ripping studs out (me included). I find that when you get into low snow conditions, you slow down. Try not to spin your track. Most of the time it is the rocks & stumps that will rip out or bend studs.
:D

I find that studding a track down the center seems to take more of a beating then the outside edge. If you rip a stud out on the outside edge then the track is pretty well junk or you half to get it repaired, which I find exspensive. If you don't ride in icey conditions don't stud it. If you do then stud it down the center & take it easy in low snow conditions.
Another thing you can try is wait for winter & ride both sleds & see if you like riding the sled with studs or without studs better. :D
