Roetin Industries was the first company to manufacture and sell carbide runners.  We've been in the business longer than anyone else and we've learned how to make the best products on the market.  Several years ago, we found out that replacing two short carbide "wear pads" with Masterwear filler, doubles the life of the Masterwear Carbide Runners.  While other manufactures have stayed with obsolete wear pads, we now use Masterweld on all our consumer carbide runners to give the customer more value for the money.
