Lynx Levelers opinions

I was browsing the RV aisle at my local Wal-Mart (an aisle I was totally unaware of a few weeks ago!) when I saw the Lynx Levelers, 10 blocks in a handy carrying case for $30. I've read a few threads in here about leveling, I see that some people mention they've used them. Are they effective, would you buy them again, or go with something else if you had it to do over? That's usually a solid indicator of a product's performance for me. Let's hear the opinions! TIA.

I now have two sets and will most likely purchase a third. They work great and are much lighter then wood to carry around.

I've got a set of the walmart brand (orange I believe) and a set of the camping world brand (yellow). The yellow ones are sturdier in my opinion.

I have two sets of the orange Lynx levelers. Much better than wood scraps. I recommend them.

I have two packages of lynx.

Work great.

I use them under the wheels, and under the stabilizers when the ground is soft of uneven.

I don't use them under the tongue jack, but I also have a Fastway flip foot and this is wider than the normal tongue jack base..

I really appreciate how they stack back up into their own zippered pouch.

Neat and tidy.

The pouch even lets me put them in muddy (getting out of dodge quick when raining) without getting the trailer muddy.

Recommended purchase!

I can't even imagine using blocks of wood.........what a hassle.

+1 for me as well. We picked up a set for the a frame and haven't regretted it one bit. I use them on the low side, and toss one under the wheel of the tongue jack.

Seem to be solid and the zippered bag is a plus too... Easy storage without them getting scattered all over the place.

either the orange Lynx or the yellow CW version are preferable to wood blocks in my opinion.
lightweight, easy to clean and compact.

I carry 4 sets, but will likely drop back to 2 sets next season. Can't remember the last time that I used more than 1.5 sets to level.

Yup. Work as advertised and easier to store than wood.
