    Does anyone recommend a specific sled or prowler to be used primarily outside on an asphalt driveway? Looking for follow the technique recommended by Rip in video with Chase on the long poles so I donít care about the lower handles. Seems like a lot of option out there between Rep Fitness, Rogue, Fringesport and Elitefts. I just want something durable without paying for more than needed. Appreciate folks thoughts.

    I haven't invested in a prowler yet. So far for my purposes a used 16" tire, dip belt and nylon strap are working awesome. The tire rides consistently on the asphalt and doesn't damage it. It will pick up and drag small stones however so I keep the driveway blown off. I also have a chest harness that also works nice. This reminds me I need to be less lazy and do that more.

    I like the Titan pro sled, works great on my asphalt driveway. Have loaded maybe 200lbs on it (I think, put it away for the winter, can't remember exactly what I was doing with it), seems like it would do fine with plenty more. It does NOT like to be pushed on grass. If you are into pulling it with a harness, that seems to work OK on grass, though I prefer pushing it. Sounds like that's your plan too. But it's fun to watch the kids strap themselves in and drag it around the lawn.

    With about $65 in materials and just under two hours of labor you can build your own....

    I own the Rogue Butcher. It gets the job done: two poles for plates. I bought the plastic pads for the skids to protect my driveway a bit. Though, if I were to go back Iíd probably get the Rogue Dog Sled. One place for plates (the center) but you can move the handles to either side. Thatíd be way easier than turning the damn thing around.
