Will a wildcat tramp work on a tiger? I like the angled in hiking straps and cut out for the spin blocks.

So
1 Will they fit?
2 is that "Class" legal?

Adding straps and grommets to your existing tramp would be much less costly and simple to do I'd think. We have added grommets to tramps in the past on our Tigers - not difficult to do.

To answer your question though - I am not sure they 'would' fit - maybe someone in EU has done this - see what other people post (nobody in the USA has though, since we've never sold a WC tramp I can say confidence)

I was asking because I'm due for a new tramp so if i can just get the new one its easier that buying a tiger tramp and modifying it.

Rich,
I think the distance between the crossbars on the Wild Cat is slightly shorter than the Tiger. The tramp looks smaller to me. I do know the crossbars are set further back on the Wild Cat. This would make the tramp small for your application. If you did use a Wild Cat tramp...you might have a gap running parallel to the rear crossbar. Plus the spin block anchors might not line up. I'd go with Jacques suggestion.

Good Luck,
John
