The Linn Area Mt. Bike Association (LAMBA) - http://LAMBAonline.org/ has been able to test out a few different Rogue Hoe tools (F55A, FB55H, 70HRH, 80RH) in the building of singletrack trails in the moderately soft soils of our neck of the Midwest.
The primary trial building tool used by our group is the mcleod, which is an excellent multi-faceted tool for what we do; in fact, the best tool we have used until the discovery of the Rogue Hoe. The weight, shape, and sharpness of the various Rogue Hoes has proven to be ideal for the proper shaping of trails. Using a Rogue Hoe has resulted in more efficient and proper trail construction by our volunteers!
If we were to give any constructive feedback about the hoes, it would be to expand upon handle material and length options, such as fiberglass for all hoes in various lengths; different length wooden handles would also be advisable.
Attached are a few pictures of Rogue Hoes in use and below is a video...
If you have further questions or comments for us, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We plan to demo and further test the hoes this weekend and to place an initial order for various hoes the week of May 21st.
