  1. I got one not too long ago and I am very happy with the overall results. It’s weird, I immediately thought of the American Chopper show when I saw this in person. It just reminds me of a quality made device. And it truly is a quality made slider, that’s for sure.

    1. Hey Jeffrey, now that you mention it, I kind of see what you’re referring to. The slide does kind of look like what those guys have put out in a way. Maybe it’s the design of the slider that does it, idk. Anyways, I am really interested in this slider, it looks much more practical than many other sliders on the market.

  2. I was waiting for this bad boy to finally be released. I’ve been waiting for it to finally get shipped. I really hope this turns out to be the best slider around, but I’ll see for sure when I get my own hands on it. ;)

  3. I have been waiting for this slider forever it seems like now. I saw it a while back somewhere and I got hooked and I just wanted to get one right away. I just saw this post and realized it’s available now, so I’m ordering mine as we speak. I am so excited for this.

  4. That’s great news. I’ve been waiting for this slider for a while now and I was ready to dish out the cash for it. I hopefully will be picking one up very soon.
