If you are considering dishing out the money for a prowler, and you don’t want to make your own, then I would say it’s well worth it.
The difference in friction between this and a regular isn’t going to factor into your training.
The point of the sled is that it’s resistance, raw resistance with no eccentric movement to create more muscle damage. This sled has that.
The purpose of the handles on the prowler is so that you can do a sled “push” as opposed to just a pull. This sled has that as well.
Seems to me to fit the criteria I would look for in a sled. It’s up to you to decide if the extra “features” (looks, quality, etc) are worth the difference in price.[/quote]
Thanks for the info, I’m sure I could make one if I could get ahold of a welder(sure teh hobby shop has one) as I can MIG weld, but I sold my welder when I left Florida. I could really care less about the looks, look at the ghetto fab box we made for the Box Jumps, lol.
