I’m impressed with the level of versatility of this slider. It’s nice to have the option curved panning on one side and straight on the other. I don’t know of any other slider that offers that. I use this slider with my ProMediaGear TR424L Pro-Stix Tripod with my half ball leveling head which allows me to get some very creative panning shots on different angles. I especially love how smooth the carriage is, even when hand using my camera on this slider. It is durable, light weight and easy to use, even for people like me who are new to videography. I have the 4’ but I will be getting the 2’ also.
After owning several other highly popular sliders this is my favorite. Top notch build quality, low maintenance, and allows for many types of shots with it's curved and straight rails. Sets up quickly especially with the add on slider clamp.
