    Have you put them in the mud yet? Let us know how they work. I had some guy tell me that his claws worked better than some Boggers he had.

    P.S. Do you think you can get me the same deal? [​IMG]

    Ha ha, good price, serves him right. O.k. now to the meat of the reply, let us know how they do in the rocks and on the trails. One of the other bb's I go to have nothing but negative comments on them at Moab. Said that MT was there and letting people borrow them to wheel and anybody that had or saw them were not very impressed. Keep in mind though that this was a limited test and these were some hard core wheelers.
