I have a terrible case of foot slippage and I'm thinking about trying the cheese grater style of pads. I've used the regular rubber pads and right now I've got the sandpaper style. I really liked the sandpaper pads the first two times I used them, but they seemed to wear too quickly (and fill with dirt/sand). What do you think about the metal grater pads?
Has anyone tried anything alternative pads/iron combinations? I've been looking at these: Centaur Super Comfort Pad Fillis Stirrup Iron - Statelinetack.com and these: Composite Reflex Stirrup Irons | Dover Saddlery and I'm just curious of they offer superior stability and comfort.
