    These are both made by Proslide. What are the differences? Besides the XT retracts. Thats a big price tag difference. Anyone use both? Other opinions?

    Their website doesn't make it very clear about what the GoSlide doesn't do. I would like to know more too because I'm going to be buying another ProSlide soon and maybe the GoSlide is an option for me....

    It is a much simpler design than the proslide and much cheaper. However what happens when you have paved surfaces? The proslide we just step off. It seems like it would be a pain putting it up and down all the time.

    Might as well have wheels!

    But the Go Slide would help stripe unlike wheeled riders.
    The price is good on it too.

    If they have a different business plan, lower overhead, less employees, etc, etc....they should still charge what the top dogs in the business do. Companies like that give other slide makers a bad name. :rolleyes:

    According to the definition of "lowballer" on this board....they are lowballers, won't stay in business long, and you shouldn't do business w/ them.

    Sorry guys, I'm bored and thought I'd be sarcastic.
