    Price Paid: 57
    Recommended: yes
    Cons: None, way better than El cheapo Walmart draw bars
    Pros: Class IV and V5 rated, beefy, actually does take the knocks and bumps out!
    One tough ball mount draw bar. My wife was rear-ended at a stop light on Bragg Blvd in Fayetteville with this draw bar in the frame hitch... if it wasnt cushioned the felt impact definately would've been greater I believe. The bar and ball received some scratches, but other than that... no damage whatsoever once they pulled the other car off my truck ball/hitch. So from a safety aspect... I appreciate the feature of this ball mount.

    As for towing the boat, 7K worth of boat on the hook, she performs great and lessens the knocks and bumps when starting/stopping. The neo deals actually do take some of that out.. I was suprised. Using this draw bar does not affect operation of the surge brake system as well, if anything it helps it to not lock up the trailer brakes as quick, but you can still slow the whole rig down in the same amount as with a non-cushioned bar.

    I recommend it, it's been great and I'd definately buy this product again!
