    not that I've used one, but from what I've read...
    The slide acts like a striping kit. Everybody says that it leaves great stripes. As far as turns, it sounds like for the most part it works ok. I think some of it has do with what kind of mower you have and how heavy the operator is. I've got a 36" belt drive which seems to be a little light for the proslide, but I've also read useres that said it worked fine on that kind of a mower. Like I said try a search though and you can come up with lots of info.

    I should have one on a 48" hustler SWB here before long. If I get really bored I might put a big league lawns striping roller on the machine too. One way or another I should be able to leave some wicked stripes on my zoysia properties next season....not to mention the fescue ones. :cool:

    The Proslide is a great little device. You mount it to the rear of your walk-behind, and you stand on it while mowing. Its pretty much a wheel-less sulky. Its also a blast to use. Turning is not an issue, although reversing or stopping quickly will cause it to retract, if you are not careful. Buy it on ebay its 1/2 the dealer price.

    The only conflict on turning is if the turf has a dip where you turn or a sprinker head that the edge of the slide catches and can take out the head.

    I step off of it, then back on, on almost every turn on turf. Otherwise, the PS increases the chance of divoting.
