    Default Best source (price-wise) for studs?

    I need to re-stock my supply, and it's been years (YEARS!) since I bought any. Who has the best prices and a good variety to choose from? Also need rubber plugs, preferably, and if they happen to be having a Black Friday sale, even better.

    This is where I get mine unless I see them on sale
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    I used to be able to find them on eBay for cheap!

    If I find some on sale I will usually grab a few, but at only a couple of bucks apiece they are relatively painless to buy, when compared to everything else!

    I occasionally will throw in four studs to fill up a "buy $100 and get free shipping" deal.

    I wish Horze carried studs!

    I don't need a ton of them, but they will be getting used once or twice a week all through winter so I'd like to have a few extras on hand. I have a couple sets that are missing one, too, and I'm out of the little rubber plugs (that can be reused quite a bit, if you can keep track of them!). I'm trying to be good and not spend a ton on Black Friday sales, just want to pick up a few things I actually need.

    Just need to put a plug out there for BOB... they are a major supporter of our sport. I like to spend my dollars with them as a thank you!

    I really like the Dover plugs that were linked. I had NO luck with the ones that have the hole in the middle! More than once I ended up cramming the stud in on top of the plug or having to use tweezers to get the plug out since a little rock was stuck in the hole. I find that the Dover ones last me two shoeing cycles (using studs 1-2 x a week) which is pretty good. VTO carries them too.
