    What’s the thinking behind the new mix stud patterns where companies mix soft and firm ground studs? I have a pair of Adidas Nitrocharge SG boots with a SG/FG stud mix and as I live in England the dreary weather basically ensures that I play on wet, muddy, SG pitches. But why the mix? Is it so when the ground does start to firm up I could in theory continue to wear my boots for a longer period before switching to a FG only pair? Is it just cheaper for companies to produce mixed sole-plates instead of the traditional 2 studs in the heel/4 in the forefoot plates of old?
    I can pretty much guess your answer to the question of swapping out the SG studs for FG ones, even when I’m still playing on natural grass.
