Portable Blocking Sled – King Crab By Gilman Gear

We introduced the Gilman Gear’s King Crab Sled at our 7-9 year old practice this week and the response was great.  The kids loved the new piece of equipment to use and the challenge to push it around the field.  I let another coach use the King Crab Sled at our Tuesday practice and he thought the sled not only helped build lower body strength, but the King Crab Sled made the player stay low, because if you got to high the sled would dig into the ground.  All 4 coaches that used the sled this week, including myself, loved its performance with our youth football players.

What I love most of all about Gilman Gear’s King Crab Sled, is the portability.  That’s the main reason I bought it.  I drive a Ford Expedition and the sled fit easily into the back.  It even made the other gear and bags thrown in the back more organized.  Take a look at the pics:

As you can see, its fits perfectly into the back of an Expedition.

So, I was able to stuff 3 round bags, 3 square hand helds, 1 half round, football bag and the King Crab Sled in the back of my Ford Expedition.  I could have found room for one more round bag.

If you are looking for a portable sled because you can’t leave a traditional blocking sled at your practice field, the Gilman Gear King Crab Sled works great.  Stay tuned next week, for some pics of the King Crab Sled in use.
