Ok guys sorry if has bee discussed before but I searched for the answer and didn't come up with one.

Looking to add ski glides to my 10' triton tilt deck. Asked sales rep about multi glides and he said he would NOT recommend those glides and would only recommend the low profile or low profile grip glides.

Only thing i could find on the forum was someone said they listened to the forum here and returned there multi glides for the grip glides.

Just trying to find out more information on why no one likes the multi glides? Different plastic? Height issue? I understand the grip deal but how are they that much different than the low profile regular ones? I was going to go with them because they seem to have the least resistance and I don't have reverse, but now i am questioning myself. Any info would be appreciated

Thanks
Shane

one reason is because the way the grooves are laid out. Your wearbar has to fit between them, if they are not laid out right they can bind. The low pros are much more forgiving, you really don't have to line up anything,, just drive on

And if you need to shove the sled over its a lot harder to lift the front end up and get the ski out of the grove

I had a sled with no reverse it came off my clam tilt just fine. The plastic is real hard and slippery. The nubs on them are great so you don't land on your butt walking on them

I did not have the multi glides but I had something similar

low pro grip glides are my recommendation. there are also just low pros, but those are different. you want the ones that say grip glides.

It could have been me. I originally bought the multi glides and once I got them delivered and looked at them I could see potential problems ahead. I returned them for the low pro grip glides and I am 100% happy that I did.

Like stated above it is so much easier to get the carbide/wear bar into the right groove with the limited room I have on my 8.5' x 10' 2 place trailer. Also, the grip on the grip glides have saved my ass more than ten times from slipping badly and maybe hurting myself. What a great product Caliber has. I have not had to use the warranty at all but from what I have read they are great about honoring their warranty.

I also went with the Trax Grabber down the middle

instead of the trax mat. Another decision I am very happy with.

I don't know the rules on posting companies websites that have good deals on this site. PM me for a company that is about 26% off retail. It is who I bought mine through and no I do not know them or get any kickbacks at all. They just have a great deal with free shipping.
