Re: lightweight small slider

The Shark Slider S1 has been working great for me. It's lightweight and more solid than it looks in the photos.

Here it is from a DVinfo sponsor: Shark Slider

Re: lightweight small slider

I will 2nd the Shark slider. It slides very smooth and I am happy with it. But with the flywheel attached, which is necessary for the smoothest slide, I would not call it light. In all my experience with various sliders light is not synonymous with an ultra smooth slide.
