First, the Bleacher Reacher Mega, which uses compressed CO2 to launch T-shirts into stadiums, is up against iStretch, a wire that can stretch 300 percent without breaking. Our second match-up pits OnGuard, the makers of some of the toughest locks and chains, against Link-Belt, whose excavators can dig with super strength. Finally, the New Way Sidewinder XTR garbage truck, capable of delivering 60,000 pounds of crushing force, faces off against the Calzone case, custom made to take a beating.
