    Gator Guides???

    Found a ad on Kijiji for these. anyone using Gator Guides? They come in 10' lengths and sell for $3/ft Super Glides going for $103.99 for 8.5ft Just prices i have seen so far. Is the Super Glides worth the extra coin? Only looking at putting them on my deck. TIA

    "The Fort Saskatchewan Snow Angels used Gator Guides on a large ramp to get onto and off of the Athabasca River. Guides are easy to work with,flex good and are tough. Tried them with snow on my boots and felt like they were not to slippery. If your looking for something I would recommend these." as quoted from TylerG or Sledderglen

    Report back with your results. I can't see them not being slippery when covered in snow but I need to re-do my ramp.

    I have them. But have not installed them yet. I would do super glides on a ramp for walking or atv purpose for the grips.

    My ramp already has super glides but I purposely bought the gator glides for the deck because I donít want the traction studs on the deck for when I load Other Random large items on there. I want to be able to slide a big box around without shredding it.

    I will be looking to do both now that my ramps are gone. had glides on my ramp but last night someone figured they needed my ramp and 5th wheel hitch more then i did. tailgate not locked (my fault) and the hitch was in my driveway... such a piss off.

    I like the SuperGlides due to the fact they are not as brittle in the cold. I found cheaper glides that were installed on my deck (USA manufacturer) brittle and cracking. I don't have experience with Gator Guides but all of the "SuperClamp" products are top notch IMO.

    How is that bridge for accommodating the different width of ski stance? My ramp is set up to 36" and the 42" sleds are a pita.
