Does anyone have experience with Power Madd low profile ski glides? Do the carbides dig in? My friend has the garage door trim glides and our C&As carbides don't fit so well.

I put a set on my trailer this year and have had good luck with minimal carbide damage. Have not used other brands so I don't have a lot to compare to.

I'm using a cut up bed liner and so far the carbides haven't damaged it yet. I cut strips out of the bed liner with a circular saw and it looks pretty good. Found the liner on the side of the road. Works for me.

Put a set on my trailer this year. Think they are great. Carbides don't dig in. The sled will slide right off the trailer when tilted up.

I have used a product hat is for hockey rinks.
Its called either: "puck board" or rink board"
Its white almost plastic like. Use the thickest you can find.
The only draw back is in extreme cold (-30cel and on) it seems to become
a little brittle.
Sells by 4' x 8' sheets. cost me around $35.00 a sheet. Used one and cut
it into 1' x 8' x 2 and 2'x8' x 1 strips.
An old track cut works excellent down the middle.

I have Slide Guides. They are made from recycled plastic milk jugs.
These are the best trailer guides I have seen. They are a little costly
but it will be your last purchase. I have had them for 5 years no problems
check out slideguides.com :wub:

Snoace, where did you purchase that from ?
I bought the puck board (rink board) at a local lumber-hardware store.
In Saskatoon its called J&H Lumber. You'll need to check it out at larger lumber yards.

I found this on another site somewhere, so I can't take credit for it....

You can buy solid vinyl moulding at Home Depot in 10 foot pieces. They are 1"x6" format with 5 flutes in the back side. They are called garage door jamb. I paid $15 each.

If you look HERE there is a cross-section diagram labelled "Jamb." You can mount them with the flutes up and they look just like ski guides. Get a box of stainless steel screws and you are all set. ;)

Note: I could only find white here in Dayton. My dad lives in Chicago and found other colors at Menards.

Your skegs will get caught in those door jamb guides if you have a 1/2" host bar. It happened to me, but i just ran a router down the channel to clear it out a bit and they work fine after that. If its a 7/16 host bar, no problem.
