Prowler or Knockoff....Juggernaut?

I've been thinking about picking up a Prowler 2 from EliteFTS for years now. I was about to pull the trigger and just missed the last 10% off sale. I noticed CFF has a new push/pull sled called the Juggernaut, it's going on sale over the weekend and it's somewhat tempting. I'm leaning towards just waiting another week or two until Elite FTS puts the Prowler back on sale.

Anyone seen this new "Prowler" sled from Christian Fitness Factory?

I don't have an experience with the quality of CFF's equipment. Thoughts?

Re: Prowler or Knockoff....Juggernaut?

I think if I were to get a sled I'd get this one:

I like the versatility. That one looks pretty interesting though.

Re: Prowler or Knockoff....Juggernaut?

It's not really clear to me what comes with the Juggernaut. If I am understanding it correctly it looks like the prowler is actually a better deal. I don't think any of the arms or whatever come with the Juggernaut for $429.

A buddy of mine got the E-Series prowler and it looks like a well-made piece of equipment.

I've kind of been looking at the Rogue Butcher (WFS) http://www.roguefitness.com/rogue-butcher-847.php
since the shipping would be a little more reasonable for me.

Re: Prowler or Knockoff....Juggernaut?

FringeSport put forth some interesting entries into the prowler / push sled market recently. Sounds like you are looking for something pretty beefy, so you might check out the Chariot Sled (http://www.fringesport.com/collectio...l-chariot-sled wfs). Save a good bit of money over those Prowlers at $249 shipped.

Fringe also has a true prowler, but it looks to be aimed more in the Econ direction.

Now if cost didn't matter this would be probably at the top of the list for me:

Re: Prowler or Knockoff....Juggernaut?

I talked with CFF and the Juggernaut is made in China and weighs 162lbs without the multi-grip attachment or the football style push pads. They have a video out of someone pushing 2100lbs on it.

I plan to use it mainly for 40-100m pushes across my front yard. I may just go with a Rogue Sled for versatility and space saving.

Re: Prowler or Knockoff....Juggernaut?

If that's all your using it for I'd recommend the sled from Dick's Sporting Goods.

http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/pr...uctId=12982368 (WFS)

I've had one just over a year now and have put at least 50 runs on it. All on asphalt. The only problem I've had with it is some of the paint flaking off of the upright "horns" from sliding my weights on it. It's a great deal if you have any in stock at a local store. It's smaller than a prowler so if you need to load it in a car that's a plus.

FYI It weights about 40#.

Not to hijack but has anyone used one of these on a gravel driveway?
