PostSubject: snatch blocks...who's got em and what do you have....   Tue Jan 22, 2013 9:58 pm

like the title says...who's got em and what do you have??

Im looking at buying a snatch block and i want a good one without having to break the bank...i have seen these things go for as low as $29.00 and as high as a couple of hundred dollars....i want something that will not break but i dont want something that weighs a ton either...
Im a "why" kind of person...so WHY should i be interested in the one that you are describing to me...??

I have the Smittybuilt as well. I used it once, it worked.

Just FYI, we have the ARB ones in stock at ECGS if you decide to go that route. I can probably work out pretty cheap shipping. The ARB ones are STOUT, as usual with ARB products

I don't remember. Most likely the 18k. I've gotta dig through my recovery bag and make sure it's still there....

I've got a Warn and a Viper. They both work fine and have not let me down yet. I've used them both together as well to pull the FJ sideways once. That was a cool rescue, sideways and uphill at that:D

Both are pretty light, they look really nice

You can take solace in the fact that it will not be me. BUT, if you are having the 3rds shipped to you, be rest assured that you will get a metric ton of stickers for whatever your desires.

Maybe you have a fridge in the garage that needs stickers, maybe a tool box.

Here @ Southeast we keep the ARB7000's and MasterPull synthetic blocks in stock as much as we can. We just sold several of the ARBs so we have more on order.

The ARBs and MasterPulls are $89.95 IIRC - both discounted prices. The ARBs are in our WEB STORE (<---- linky) but I haven't gotten around to putting the MasterPulls online yet.

We have used both. The MasterPull is designed for use with synthetic line and is lighter than the ARB. Both are good blocks and I'm happy with both and would use either.

I looked at my block today and no weight stamped on it. Sorry it took me a couple days. I use the same deflator, the one with the gauge and like it. I had Stauns and they were a pain where I sit. Currie sells the same deflator, I contacted the company that makes them but I would have had to order far too many in order to get my logo on the face.

So Mike, figures the weekend after you post this I finally got to use my snatch block Smile Used it to pull a guy sideways out of the river at Gulches. Worked like a charm! Wish we had some pics.
