Default Is it worth upgrading to gripper skis

Quick question. I have 2014 M8000 SnoPro 162. Few basic upgrades but mostly stock (including stock cat skis). I have heard a lot of people put the Polaris gripper skis on and say it makes a big difference. Does everyone agree? I found a pair of used grippers off a 2016 Polaris that are in pretty good shape. I can get them for $225 shipped.



Good deal? That much of an improvement?

Nope, they're terrible. Tell me exactly where you found those grippers for 225, with full contact info. You know, so I can let him know, he almost led you astray.








Yeah you should get those. Those skis work really well.

Thanks for the advice. Now I just have to convince the wife that they are an early Christmas gift to myself.

On another note....I canít for the life of me figure out why Arctic Cat canít come up with better stock skis. It canít be that hard to make some changes to their process.

You may want to check Polaris for there cost, I purchased new grippers for 125 each in Canada. It was spring and they were on sale.

If you are thinking or dreaming of mountain riding, or in just being in powder, you definitely need to upgrade.
I have never tried grippers. I am content with my Powder Pros.
