The idea for SMITTYSLEDPRO grew from an ice-fishing trip in Ontario, Canada. We had a good time, catching yellow perch and white fish. I could see ice-fishing was a great way to leave the stresses and strains of everyday life. And thanks to our flip-over ice shanty, we stayed pretty warm, and it was easy to set-up quickly, when moving from one spot to another. However, it was heavy to pull! I mean, it was not too bad in the morning, but by the end of the day, when there was more snow, and the wind got stronger and we were more than a little tired, pulling that heavy ice-sled became a nightmare.
*** SMITTYSLEDPRO will be available Fall, 2015. ***

The SMITTYSLEDPRO is more than just a pretty light-weight, aircraft-grade aluminium base with optional steel split-tow bar. It just as importantly has ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) skate-skies. The molecular chains of this material transfer load extremely effectively to the polymer's backbone, resulting in a very tough material, with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made. UHMWPE is also nontoxic, has an extremely low moisture absorption rate i.e. won't get heavy, and a very low coefficient of friction, comparable to that of Teflon. On top of all that, this polymer is self-lubricating and is highly resistant to abrasion. Thanks science!

Vinh Nguyen, Founder of SMITTYSLEDPRO, has a life-long passion for inventing, innovating and solving product problems. After graduating with a Physics degree in his native Vietnam, Vinh came to Canada with his wife, and eventually opened his own tool and die shop, Express Wire EDM & Waterjet Inc. It was a trip to Lake Simcoe, to experience the challenge of 'hardwater' fishing that pushed Vinh to begin researching, building and testing ice sleds. The results are Vinh's version of the indomitable ice-fishing and winter sled, SMITTYSLEDPRO.
