They us different methods entirely. The Draw-Tite is a time control that starts the voltage at a set amount, then increases it based on the time it gets a brake signal from the pedal switch.

The Prodigy used both an accelerometer and a switch senor, has on board diagnostics, and 3 boost settings to step up the initial starting voltage for heavier loads or weaker brakes.

Some people don't like all the fuss of the Prodigy and would rather use the simpler Draw-tite. I like my Prodigy a lot, but with a new load or trailer sometimes it takes a few tries to find a good setting. Once it's setup is extremely smooth and linear on both gradual and panic stops.

I guess we don't have a rule about price bashing outside of the vendor area or marketplace.
