    What drag sled ?

    I'm interesting in getting a drag sled, can't decide on which one. I also need to pick up some plates, but that can be done anywhere. Opinions please.

    If you can afford it I would get the prowler instead as it can be pushed, pulled, and drug. It's probably the best conditioning tool out there.

    The econo version can be broken down into 2 pieces. Great tool.

    Also, for a sled an old tire with an eyebolt through it works as well as anything.

    Hmm, I have an old tire in the trunk as it is. It is missing the rim though. I just have the rubber.

    The other nice thing is you don't need as much weight as the tire will bite into the pavement.

    I backed the eyebolt with a piece of wood on the inside of the tire to make sure it didn't pull through.

    The rubber is all you need man, no need for the rim. just stick a board in the bottom so the weights don't fall and you will be good. Like Ben said, you don't need a lot of weight at all, plus it won't piss off the neighbors as you can do it just about anytime without making too much noise.
