I've been eyeballing the pull pal and think it's a great idea to use for recovery especially out here in Vegas where we don't really have any trees. But it doesn't look much different then a boat anchor and there are so many of them available to me when I go visit my parents in Florida. So why not just use a boat anchor?
Try looking on Craig's list for a Fortress or Guardian (similar to Fortress but no lifetime warranty) anchor when you go to Florida. The Fortress is expensive but you can find them used in the boating communities. A lot of people don't know that the Fortress has a lifetime warranty on all parts so you may able to get one for super cheap if it's bent or otherwise damaged. You just email Fortress and tell them you need a new shank for an FX-blah blah and they send it to you. You can also try stores that deal in used boat parts like... Boaters Resale Shop of Texas
They're aluminum and come apart to make a very compact and light package.

I have quite a bit of experience with the Pull Pal and very little with a boat anchor. The PP is invaluable and will save your bacon. There are a number of sizes to fit your needs. The Gremillion family make these things in Colorado and they are well with the money.
