Cheap sand ladders

I found this the other day and thought I'd post it here in case someone wanted any. It's the best deal I've seen on them.

If they are made in the US, then we should be able to get them even cheaper, as that price is likely padded with US-to-UK shipping, which is expensive. Good tip for a new google and ebay search. anyone know the US manufacturer?

We got steel ones for like $20 a piece at some place a few years back. Completely useless.

Experience is valued. Can you elaborate on why it didn't work? I think as bridging ladders, if they could be found in aluminum, they might be good. Steel sounds way, way too heavy to me.

There is a guy on Ebay selling 12"x48" ladders made of 2"x2" fiberglass. I have a set on the way and will report, 96 bucks for a pair.

I've used the metal type ones, and they are just heavy and akward ... I've also used the fiberglass waffle types and they have worked nicely, they bend a bit, but go right back into shape.. but if you use them a lot of rocks, they'll start splintering.
