So I've been to all the sites and they all basically look the same but you never know until you see them in person. Which brand in your opinion is constructed the best?

I personally prefer the bearing system of the Stealth. They seem to hold up a lot longer than the bearings of the CC or Fast Track. I have Stealths that are over five years old and still going strong, but never had another wheel last more than a year or two.

I also forgot to say that I want to mount a wheel on the side of my cage or the ceiling. That is where my wodent wheel is right now and my little Asi is in love with where it is right now so I would like to place it in the same general location.

there are very distinct differences between the cruiser and all the other wheels, I believe it is bad business to compare them, so I will only say the cruiser is a different type of machine, it is geared towards exercise.. it requires the glider to work harder to get going, as the center is offset , therefore causes a bounce action.

here is a video of a 4 month old glider using a full bounce 5 inch cruiser

Dolly hops a ride..owned by Dirty Paws

I personally think they are all good wheels, but each one is different in it's own way.

I agree, they are all good wheels. You need to figure what you want, and what your budget is and decide from there.

Agreeable. I have a stealth... and its great! Silent and the only thing I can hear is when there hands and feet hit the track. I have one furrbutt that is getting chunky, and plan on getting a CC and just adding it to the cage along with the stealth.

I have 3 stealth wheels and 1 new Fast Track....Although more expensive I have to say the stealth is a much better made wheel...worth the extra money in my opinion...I cant comment on the Cruiser...yet!

I have 2 stealth wheels and a CC (I just got the CC this weekend). Mine is a 1/2 bounce. I wanted to try it out and so far my babies love it. It doesn't seem to matter to them whether they run in the CC or the stealth wheels but they're all quiet and they all provide exercise and entertainment for my babies (and for me when I watch them!) I don't have a fast track so I can't comment, but love my stealth wheels and my CC.

My one stealth will mount to the side of the cage, but the other one and my CC have stands which makes them portable for trip like the one last weekend.

Id say neither, get the cruiser because its simply better than everything elseout there. The safety features are so far superior to any other wheel out there, that alone is reason enough to me (down to even how high off the cage floor it sits with stand or wall mount and how far away from the cage wall so there is no possible way another glider walking around it can get hit by it while its in motion) and then when you add in the bounce action feature and customizeable size and color options (because let's face it we all love decorating our suggie cages lol) and the bounce action makes the quality of excercise far superior to anything else on the market. I'm not saying other wheels aren't decent, I'm just saying if you want the best for your babies, a cruiser is what you want.

So I've decided to get one custom cruiser and one stealth wheel (only because my Asi loves to run as fast and he can and I think the bounce would throw him off). What type of bounce in the CC would you suggest for my suggies?

I can only speak about the Stealth wheel. We have 12 Stealth wheels in use every night. Most of them are six to seven years old and still in great shape.

I like the Stealth wheel. It can be side mounted to the cage or hung from the top with its stand or used up off the cage bottom with the stand.

Check the CC site. SHe states which wheel is best for what suggies. One is for obese gliders, and one is for chunky gliders and one is just for pure excercise. (if Im correct. could be a little unaccurate) Def check the site out smile

When I graduated from Wodent to stealths, I was thrilled with the quiet. They are all in good condition, but I bought 4 Cruisers this weekend and I am waiting to get the cages cleaned to add them. I think each wheel is good in its own right, just designed for a different purpose.

When I first got my gliders, I had a Wodent Wheel. Soon after, I got my Stealth and I love it! It's so quiet, I don't even hear it, and my girls love it too. I plan to get a Custom Cruiser to add to the cage so they each have a wheel and have the option of two different types of exercise.

If your gliders are young and in shape id get a full bounce, if they are not in great shape or a little older id get half, and if they are obese or rescues with health defects or very old id get the minimum bounce. Apparently there is a super bounce which I had never heard of so I don't know if there rlly is or not but if so my kids need that because they have the full bounce and they are still insanely fast lol.

I am currently trying to decide between stealth, fast track, and custom cruiser and wheels I found here: http://www.mygliderwheels.com/wheels.

I haven't heard too many comments about the fast track wheels. They seem very similiar to the stealth... I don't know what the difference is between these 2???

which wheel do the gliders seem to prefer....?

The wheel that David Watkins is selling is a Stealth Wheel copy. No doubt about it.


And Amanda, That should have been one of the best wheels you've ever seen since is IS a direct copy.

I have CC, Fast Track and a stealth. All 3 are great wheels and have there own good things about them. Most of my cages have 1 cc wheel and a Fast track or stealth.

Now to compair the Stealth and Fast track. I really like the fast track better. I like the Stealth dont get me wrong. What makes the Fast track my first choice of the 2 is the fact that i can take the bearing off the wheel wipe it down and wash the rest of the wheel. I feel you cant go wrong with any of the 3.

Melissa - your post was very helpful to me. I currently have 1 wodent & 1 stealth. My guys love the stealth! It is a great product (I just wish they came in pretty colors). But, how do I know that my guys wouldn't love the fast track or CC better? I can go with what I got and I know they'll love it or I could try a the fast track or CC. All 3 are pricey, but fast track is the least expensive (for someone like me with shallow pockets). I can't lie though - if one of these were to come out in a neon pink or orange, I would probably buy that one for pure aesthetics! clap

After much debate.... I have just purchased a Custom Cruiser! I already have a stealth wheel & they love that! I wanted to try something different. I really hope they love it. I'm crossing my fingers.

Just like furless kids, their tastes will change. I have a side-mounted Stealth and a CC in my cage. The Stealth replaced a Wodent Wheel and they loved it but about 3 months later I got a half-bounce CC and put that in the new six-foot cage with the Stealth. They started using the CC and ignored the Stealth for about 8-10 months. All of a sudden last week they started using the Stealth again and are ignoring the CC.

So ... get both! Your gliders will thank you.

Each of her wheels are customized for your gliders, it's best to e-mail or call her.
