Re: konova slider

My Konova slider arrived yesterday evening which is just 6 days from ordering & only $329 (just over 200) delivered. It's really nice, works well & comes packed in its own stylish canvas bag (black with orange detailing). The track is very rigid & the carriage moves smoothly. A big plus point is the original design instead of just using the Igus parts like every other cheap slider on the market & is excellent value.

Re: konova slider

Hi,

Thankfully I came across this thread just before I placed an order for the GlideTrack. I really love the look of the Konova but am worried about where to buy it from and if I will be charged any import/taxes. Can anybody please recommend a good place to purchase it from and If I will be charged anything t after purchasing the product online?

Re: konova slider

Now that I have had the Konova slider a couple of months I am less happy with it. The carriage frequently sticks & the legs don't screw up tight so are always coming loose. To cap it all I got a metal splint in my finger from it the other day. Sadly I can no longer recommend that anyone buy it & for around the same price suggest that you will be much happier with the GlideTrack Hybrid.

Re: konova slider

I have already placed the order :( :( :( I tried emailing them to cancel it but I somehow doubt it. I wonder what my options are now as I know I am going to face the same issues.

I contacted Konova and they were very helpful not as worried as I was before :)

Re: konova slider

I'm looking to buy a slider myself. If you don't mind my asking, what did Konova tell you that put your mind at ease regarding their product.

Re: konova slider

They basically said that they were aware of the issues in the above post and bringing out some updates later this year and will offer the updates at a discount rate. I guess you can either wait for a few months (he said 3-4) and order it then or go for it now. I still feel for the price it's worth it.
