I have used several manual sliders in the past several years and my clients really like the look you can get with them. When I came across the Pro Media Gear Duo I was intrigued...a straight track AND a curved track at an affordable price. The reviews were positive and everything looked well made. I contacted the company with a couple questions and was very pleased to get a fast response. I made the purchase and have zero regrets! I love the results an, more importantly, so do my clients! If you're looking for a solid, versatile and affordable slider, this is the one!
This is an incredible piece gear. Excellent quality and workmanship. Beautiful design, form & function. Impressive.
Just finished a Nat Geo series where we got to use the 36" slider for the first time and everyone was blown away by the ease of use and versatility of this piece of gear. Loved the one piece machined aircraft aluminum - lightweight but solid as a rock. And the slider carriage provided incredible stability and very smooth motion. This should be in every DP's kit. 36" was just right - not too short, not too long.
Excellent quality, after purchasing many sliders over the years which have all lasted much abuse most of it failed as parts of it were screwed together. Being made out of one metal block makes this much better at taking abuse, after having it on the first day I was comfortable with setting it up very quickly but placing it on top of a tree stump and misjudging the weight ratio on either side, the slider tipped over and onto a hard bed of rock. With surprise not a scratch on the paint work. The quality of the legs is great, versatile and the spirits levels on the slider make it a lot easier when levelling out the slider. Easier to use and the resistance on the slider itself makes it great for smooth motion. Shown this to some of my students who are really excited about it and looking to get the smaller versions. All in all great product for price, especially that it's hard to find the quality in the UK.
This slider is great quality for the price. It runs smooth, is well made and its really useful to have curve and straight in one unit. Would recommend.
