Did you ever get a Blendtec Sniggs?
The little ladies mom just bought us one from Costco, apparently they have a really good sale going on right now as they have switched from carrying Vitamix to Blendtec.
*Edit, first juice / smoothie down and very impressed. 1 apple whole, 1 pear whole, 1 kiwi whole, a big hand full of spinach, table spoon of flax and a big ass chunk of ginger & ice. Smooth and delicious.
Just got a Blendtec for $349. My shitty blender finally had a smoke out. Had 2 1/2 full glasses of an apple, blueberries, kale, ginger, ice and 3 tsp of flax seed smoothie.
Best purchase ever. I have had way too many greens lately.
