Looks like Cat lost a top Iron Dog team.

Not surprised. Cat had no competitive Iron Dog sled last year and they don't this year either.

Whats wrong with their 1100 procross?

One thing I took away from the Milwaukee show was the impression that Cat is now the heaviest brand by model line up of all the manufacturers.   

Really they shopuld think of commercial uses for that line up of tankopotamuses - they  make yammies look like featherlites

After riding a new Doo last season, I have come to the conclusion that for the style of riding I doo, lighter isn't necessarily better.  The sled just didn't feel planted underneath me.....not quite feather vs. brick but you get the drift.   :beer2:

What :wacko:  the new cats are about 50lbs lighter than the models they replaced!  I'm not sure wieght is the problem. 
The procross 1100 is similar weight to say a mxz 1200......close enough anyway.
