I have two wheels in each cage, in different combinations. We have Wodent, Stealth, and CCs. I've even tried the saucer ones, but it flips them off once they get going, so that one is not being used. We also have a few bucket style (the cheap plastic ones) in emergency cages and they work just fine (except for the constant thump, thump) and the big buckets have thrown a few out - maybe because they are so lightweight so the big ones went away.
They all get used. The Wodents are the hardest to keep clean, but they are a favorite for eating in (probably because it is semi-closed in and feels secure, CCs take up a lot of room and none of them seems to be able to leap in them, just walk and climb (I'm thinking they are too heavy to go fast for them) but they do use them, the Stealth, easier to clean and quite often get shared, but I do have one that squeaks and I can't seem to get rid of the squeak.

Which are YOUR favorites?
Which are your SUGGIE'S favorites?

We have Stealths and used to have wodents(wobust)

Stealth is our favourate, it's silent and smells less.

If I have to speak for the kids, they love both!

A while ago we decided to make available on our SA website wheels, HPW etc as nowhere in SA could one find any glider approved exercise wheels, only hamster and rat wheels. We did some market research and found that all SA glider owners were not willing to spend money on the "expensive" Stealth wheel so we had to look at an alternative too and decided to import both the wodent and the stealth wheel.

We ourselves used two wodents for more than a year (we only recently "upgraded" to four stealth wheels that are being used by our gliders). I still think that the wodent wheel is an excellent wheel and we never had problems of any kind. I am sure that Gizmo would in fact prefer the wodent wheel above the Stealth.

We have used both Wodent and Stealth wheels. Hands down Stealth will always come out on top. In the Wodent the pee and poo has no where to go but on your glider as the wheel keeps turning and after a couple of days it smells so bad and your gliders get nasty. With the Stealth the pee and poo can fall through as they are running and they do not get the nasty smelly stuff on them. The Stealth is also much more quite and the Wodent is just to noisy. Hope this helps smile

I have to go with the Whirl Wheel. I was in the middle of upgrading my Wodents to Stealths when I came across the economy Stealth - Whirl Wheel - on the Critter wheels site and got one of those instead. I'll stick with the Whirls for the cost and my babies love it just as much as their Stealth! heart

Thanks All!
I didn't know about the Whirl wheel from AtticWorx. That is good to know! Anyone else try them?

Cruiser. My pair leaps in it, but also AT it. Dive-bombing from the top of the cage, they are silly monkeys!

i was looking at the atticworx website and at the whirl wheel but it says the hardware is 100% zinc plated and i may have it wrong but i thought gliders could get zinc poisioning and your suppose to stay away from zinc products... i may be wrong but if im not just wanted to point that out, wouldnt want anyones babies getting hurt smile
