A Question for Rogue (Canada or U.S)

I am counting on a lump sum of money coming my way in the near future. I am looking to splurge and put the finishing touches on my gym. I was planning to get the Abram GHD (Which I know is available on the Rogue Canada site) and was also looking for a new sled. I see that on the Generic Rogue site that there is the Dog Sled, however...not seeing it on the Canadian site. Is this possible to get shipped anyway?

here is where I look for input....
Is the Dog sled awesome or am I better off with grabbing the other sled offered or the yoke?

Or do I get a combo of a sled and a yoke?

Thanks to Kim, Bill and anyone else who might give future input on this post and help my planning.

-Matt

There's nothing stopping you from buying from the US Rogue site.

I certainly don't buy from the Rogue Australia site - they're too expensive, even factoring in the shipping costs.

Re: A Question for Rogue (Canada or U.S)

I had a related question earlier that never got answered, would love for someone from Rogue to comment.

Why do you offer both the Dogsled and the prowler-type sled at basically the same price point? Just different strokes for different folks? What's the advantage of the dogsled over the prowler-type that inspired you to create an all-new sled?

Re: A Question for Rogue (Canada or U.S)

We built the business by setting our prices based on costs to manufacture and ship.

The are both similar in cost but the Dog Sled takes more welding time and has 10LBS more steel.

We built the Dog sled for the Games and everyone likes it so we are making both now!

Thanks,

Bill
