best way to place metal studs?
 
Have Dakine star-studs.
Is there any way better than other to position these 6 individual studs?
Clustering or spreading?
I was thinking of something like this:

not good, as my boots have a little arch before the heel, so the center stud wouldn't probably touch the sole

I use those...i put two where my heel touches the board and toe just before my toes, where the boot begins to curve up. It works great and leaves you with two extras, just in case

I placed them all, not symmetrically, three on top and three at the bottom

Same here, 2 front and 2 back is more than enough.

I do what this guy does. I have also only stuck two on, one on either side and about 6/8ths of the width of my boot away from where my binding is. Seems to grip ok.

Highlight for special message |Yes, I realize 6/8 is the same as 3/4|

is there any way to remove them once you placed'em?

Just turn them and they come right off. I had the silver pyramid studs before and was surprised at how easy they come off.
