For one, it cuts down on drag in deeper snow, and secondly, it protects your belly pan from damage if you should happen to hit a stump buried in the snow. Plus they come in different colors and LOOK REAL COOL.

ya they work great for protection, we used to have a 97 700, and i nailed a ice block, and it tore out the bottom of the sled. so needless to say all our sleds now have em. ya for the price, you should invest in one, i beleive

They are deffinitely worth their price, probably one of the smartest investment you can put toward your sled.

I think they are a waste of money
a belly pan is usually cheaper, and not a huge job changing
your adding wieght
a spot for snow and ice to collect = more weight
Yes they would provide some protection, but I have never had one, and in the years of riding the damage I have inflicted on my sled would have been the same if I had one on
