Looks fun, doesn’t it? That is exactly what I thought. But the price tag made my jaw drop- $249.95.
So my first thought, aside from selling plasma in order to get my hands on this toy, was how could I build this myself. I have a pretty good idea.
1 sled from the local consignment shop= estimated cost $12
1 simple stand with four screw holes at Home Depot= $5
Some used free weights at Play-it-Again Sports= $15-$25
OR Bags of sand or rock at Home Depot= $10-$20
1 20 foot rope= already own it
1 Harness made by wife= $5-10
Total Cost= $47 to $72.
I will post pictures when I get the supplies and we will see how it all turns out.
I also plan on building this so it can be used for upper body sled training. Think of strong man competitions where a seated guy pulls a heavy car on a rope towards himself, same thing. This should be fun.
