Should be no problem, I had them on my Firecat for a while and very easy on and off. I just didn't like the push so I went back to Cat with the Shapers, but great no tracking! And I bet if I bought better carbides for the Simmons they would be great also.

If the simmons are anything like the ski-doo parabolics, they will float in deep loose snow and they dont bite at all. There is a reason ski-doo switched to the pilots instead of the parabolic design.

Awesome if its a nice pack though. zero darting, easy steering... unless you're cought in the tracks are another simmons ski however.

i heard there was a patent thing with the simmon ski and skidoo / or whoever made them for skidoo..but i am hoping they turn on the trail is all...i dont get into the deep snow much and would trade that control for being able to turn thru a curve with out droping down to 15mph..lol,

:super_happy: I have the Simmons and love them. I don't notice any pushing either. On my F7 I run 6" carbides with 170 picks. On my Sabercat, I run 4" and 118 picks. No problem...

The reason, as I understand it, why Ski-Doo switched was because they were in the midst of being sued for Copyright problems with Simmons...........don't know how true it is, but i've heard it more than once.
