I have one that I got on sale (30.00) for a spare if I invite someone along without a sled. It's ok. Nothing wrong with it. A bit less slide with that kind of plastic. If I had to spend that kind of $ I'd go for a Black River toboggan.

Thanks for the feedback. I hate buying stuff sight unseen. I agree at the Amazon price it probably isn't a good idea but I found the sled on another site for about $60 and free shipping.

Grizz here check your local plastics shop I just got a quote for a 4X10 sheet of hdpe plastic that will make 3 toboggans its 1/4" thick and with a little planning could probably be cut to make a sled with sides oh quote was $119.72+tax for the sheet and would be likely more durable  just a thought cheers grizz

Just got the hdpe sheet and cost including tax was $112.00 but I forgot to mention that last year I bought a snow rover similar to the Paris and it did not pull as efficient as you would think a lot of drag works better behind my 340 tnt so for hand pulling ill stick with a toboggan Grizz.

Thanks Grizz but I did end up getting the Paris sled. I'll have to give toboggans a try one day but I think I'll stick with a sled for this year.

I ended up getting it at http://www.tools2parts.com/72-Black-Snow-Hauler-1072-p/0670-0041.htm . They had a holiday discount and free shipping, not sure if they still do or not.

After I got the sled I realized it was the same sled that a couple of buddies have, so I'm comfortable that it will work OK.

Now to design the poles, harness, and cover.
