Does anyone know what the hierarchy for Shogun mountain bikes was?

My understanding was that from lowest to highest was:
Ground Breaker
Trail Breaker
Prairie Breaker.

Where does a slick rock fit in?

But then I discovered there was a Prairie Breaker Pro and Expert...but then I recall seeing a Trail Breaker Pro somewhere on the internet.

My perspective on this was that they were different models, not necessarily comparable. So the Trail Breaker 3 was a step below the Trail Breaker 2 which was a step down from the TB1 etc. The Priairie Breaker 3 was a step down from Prairie Breaker 2 and so on and so on, so in that sense they were a bit different to the roadies Katana - Ninja - Samurai equation.

Like all these things model comparisons vary year to year. Eg in 1989 it went
Prairie Breaker Team Issue -XT drivetrain, double butted chromoly
Prairie Breaker Pro - Deore drivetrain, double butted chromoly
Ground Breaker expert - LX drivertrain,double butted chromoly
Ground Breaker - Exage "mountain" drivetrain, chromoly
Trail Breaker 3 - Exage "trail" drivetrain, chromoly frame triangle & fork
Trail Breaker 2 - Exage "country" drivetrain, tangaloy frame triangle & fork
Trail Breaker 1 SIS drivetrain, tangaloy frame triangle & fork

By 1992 they added Prairie Breaker XTR at the top end, Ground Breaker expert replaced by Prairie Breaker Exptert & dropped the other Ground Breaker.

1996 only Prairie Breaker was the expert, added Trail Breaker 4 & Ltd

Slick rock LX (Deore LX), STX (STX) & Expert (Acera) turned up by 1998 which were alloy frames

Shogun Prairie Breaker PRO 1988:

Been working on this off & on for a few weekends now. Most of my time was spent chiseling/grinding rust off everything. Once rust was removed and treated, I covered the exposed spots on the frame with clear nail polish to keep it original and protected. Front deraileur was upgraded, other than that I think it is mostly original. Pretty happy with it I haven't seen many of these around :D

Lots of paint missing from the bottom of the frame, lots of work with the dremel and rustbuster cleaning it all up:
