This tool string specific cartridge
assembly functions below the MWD pulser as part
of the ubho/Muleshoe sub. It is specially
designed for easy and cost effective
maintenance. It can be married with and
tuned to drill string shock subs to reduce
the threat of destructive harmonics.
TDT has relocated the ubho orientation set screws from their traditional location at the muleshoe to the bottom of the sub body and cartridge assembly. Between that hard mount and the uphole facing muleshoe, TDT incorporates its patented* shock & vibration reduction design. As a result, the muleshoe/tool string has effectively been detached from the drill string.
Our SOFTRIDE® component subs are
designed as a box by box housing with
a pin by pin crossover bottom sub affording
better operational maintenance and configuration

The SOFTRIDE® is currently available in
6-1/2" and 4-3/4" sizes
SOFTRIDE® has 4-1/2" and 3-1/2" API IF box connections
Crossover sub connections can be provided for any specific requirements
The cartridge assembly can be configured with
Z-axis shock and vibration decoupling only, or Z-axis decoupler combined with the SOFTRIDE® stick slip element
The stick slip C-axis element may also be run alone, within the ubho sub, without the Z-axis functionality
As with our other downhole technologies, the SOFTRIDE® cartridge is field/user friendly for the required lubrication procedures
All materials of construction meet API drill string requirements/specifications.
