Glidetrack new Aero carriage vs. older carriage

I have the Glidetrack HD with the older hybrid carriage (the one with the beige plastic bushings surrounding the bearing wheels). It's 70-80% what I want smoothness & handling-wise. The new Aero Lite & Aero Pro carriages look nice, but has anyone out there used both the older one and one of the new Aero's? If so, could you comment on how much better the Aero is? Thanks.

Hi Dave, I've upgraded from the Hybrid to the Aero (pro), it's well worth the upgrade.

In the same way that the hybrid was a substantial improvement on the original, the aero is a substantial improvement on the hybrid.

Re: Glidetrack new Aero carriage vs. older carriage

I've just received the Aero as well. Tried it with an XF300 this morning: Incredible! With an old Manfrotto 503 head on it, I was able to actually do some decent tilts as well as pans whilst tracking...
