The best pads, I think, are going to be the Crab Grabs. They will be out in force. They are made with foam, and they have much more hold. Plastic stomp pads bother me, it never really feels like they hold my foot in place like I want, even though when anything is covered in snow it stays slick. I just read about them, but I'm going to be looking for one on my Bataleon Omni. Woop. Get it!
I was using a large pad with the foot scraper thing in the middle of it but found the scraper acted as a point for my boot to pivot on, which made it hard to change from heel/toe while dodging the fallen masses when getting off the lift.
I've got the studs stuck about an inch in from the edge of my board and an inch and a half in from my binding so that I can really lock my foot in there. Seeing as there are 9 in a pack, you can do a couple of boards with one set as well.
