I read some threads last year about the goslide but nobody seemed to have tried one. One year later and I ask the same question, Has anyone tried it yet? My proslide has seen better days and was thinking about getting a new one. Price is pretty high though. I only use my Toro 36" on a couple of yards a week so I dont think it would be a big issue that the goslide doesnt retract(I hardly ever step off once I get started).
