I got 1999 Venture 2-Up (not studded track) with factory skis and do 98% groom trail riding and its current carbides are getting worn out. Thinking of replacing now.

With above in mind..... I found 2 different low replacements. Which one is best fit for my needs?

Also.... What is "angle" and its trail riding behaver / influence?

i tend to run the woodys or stud boy square bars with the 6" carbide on everything i can get them for. never paid much attention to the angle on the carbide but i do know the square host bar steers better than the round bars.

Thanks for your feedback. re: 6" is better than found 4". And Square Bar design is even better.

For 6" (for my 1999 Venture 600 2-Up), I found Woodys PN: TYV4-6450

Note: Lots of other google searches recommends 6" (instead of 4") on longer size 2-UP sleds as well.

Thanks for recommending 6" as well...
