Last I read they downsized thier offerings to just the big loaded sleds and discontinued the smaller ones.

Ok, asked at work and here is what Fast sent to its dealers. They are still making Blades, but like Freeze said they are build to order only now. There may be lawsuit between Fast and Supertrax. Supertrax printed that Fast is going out of business. At no time did they ever try to contact Fast though.

Saw a few of them in Frankenmuth, Mi. a few weeks ago. Selling $18000 sticker for $10000. Their ugly, and have a Polaris motor in them. Sell em for $8000 and maybe someone might buy one.

I run with a few Blades and once set-up they will hang right with 900 Mtn Cats and 800 Summit REV's. And the ride is like no other.

You wouldn't understand if you've never ridden one. And they are still producing sleds. I'd buy one if I had the money or had known they were selling them for 10k.
