News from a Team Renegade Member

January 25th, 2012

Hearing stories from our satisfied customers completely makes our day. We are continually thrilled and prideful when we hear how much the Renegade continues to change lives.

We just received this letter from a Renegade user, take a look:

Hello All, I am David Rogers, I have a spinal cord injury post 25 years ago. I have been an active hunter and adventurer nearly all of my life and this did not change after my injury. I am a nationally ranked wheelchair tennis player, avid wt. lifter, and cyclist. However, nothing makes me feel better than getting out in the woods, particularly now!

I use the Renegade Wheelchair and allow me to tell you this chair is, without a doubt in my mind, the most enabling chair on the market for people wanting to explore the outdoors! I hunt, fish, explore, and camp independently! For the first time in 23 years I stalked a deer, harvested it, then dragged it out; all independently.

The Renegade is truly a visionary product that I endorse because it provides freedom to persons with physical disabilities. I encourage any person wanting to independently go on the beach, cruise down an old dirt road, find the old fishing hole, or just go through the woods with a loved one to check out Renegade wheelchairs and read John Rackley’s story.

He and the staff at Renegade are friendly and knowledgeable. Check out and visit their youtube channel! Moreover feel free to call me, I will be more than happy to let you try my Renegade. Thanks for your time.

John Rackley, inventor of the Renegade All-Terrain Wheelchair had an eye opening experience on the opening day of deer season. With his Renegade, John is able to get deep into the woods at a large swamp he used to hunt at. “In the Renegade you have to zig-zag more than you do when walking and it got me disoriented before I knew it’. He had left his cell phone in the truck and didn’t have a compass or matches or any other survival gear with him. Read the rest of this entry »

February 9th, 2010

michaelwaddellRenegade made a big impact at the 2010 Archery Trade Association show in Columbus last week. Out of nearly 500 exhibitors Renegade was one of the few adaptive devices at the show and it was the only mobility device there. It caused quite a stir.

ESPN’s Don Mulligan did a double-take as he walked by the booth then he spent some time checking it out and interviewing John Rackley. Don said ‘It took a wheelchair-using hunter to finally design a chair that is tough enough to hunt without limits.’ Read the rest of this entry »
