I use the jet sled middle size. They fit in a super mag game cart great. Never had a problem :thumbsup:

Just picked this combo up at cabelas on veterans day. Got employee discount on the cart for being military knocked it down to just over a 100 after tax. The middle size jet sled was on sale for just under 40 after tax. Buddy of mine bought this combo last season. It's awesome looking forward to using it and saving my back. I plan on making a four wheeler tow bar for the sled and cart. Figured they were worth the money between using them for hauling fire wood, decoys, and deer. The cart is great for walking in you put the sled on it load everything in strap it down walk till you hit water pull sled off and pull it through the water. I got the camo sled cause thats all they had in the store and I was there. Hope it holds up my friends from last season as far as I know is still fine. I couldn't justify spending double on the beavertail sled.
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.

If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.

I found these to be just as useful and cheaper, although you'll need to some extra support where the rope attaches. Jet sled is 15in longer but width is the same and you can piggy back them.

Ive been curious about sleds in a certain aspect. Has anyone used one to tow behind a boat in order to help carry extra gear? With my blind material on the front of the boat, 2 blind bags, 2 guns, 6-8 dozen dekes, and 2 people, boat space is pretty scarce. It'd be towed behind a 12-14' bass tracker that has a 35hp motor (steering wheel driven). Will it be feasible? will it take on water?

Forget that notion.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

You have 2 guys with gear and 8 dozen decoys n a 12 foot boat? :eek:

I was going to suggest a 12' flatbottom to pull behind you, but that's what you are riding in!
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

Typo, meant to say 14-16ft. But yes, it is a 16 footer and carries all the mentioned gear with me plus a passenger. Weight wise, it's more than fine. It's more about space

I pull the above pictured four rivers sled behind my boat no problem. I have had smaller sleds that I didn't trust behind the boat.
