    Hey folks! I got the chance to test out this new slider from Trost. Check out my review and I'll try to answer any questions you may have. I was pretty impressed that I have arranged a group buy for you guys. There is only going to be 30 units available at this discount pricing. It will be as follows:

    1-15 units GROUP BUY OFFICIALLY OVER
    16-30 units GROUP BUY OFFICIALLY OVER

    - Unit comes in 75cm, or 100cm lengths. The second axis accessory is a 50cm length.
    - discount also applies to the accessories but only when purchased with the 75mm or 100mm slider.
    - The discount does not apply to the 50cm axis if purchased alone. (Which BTW would also require an extra baseplate)
    - lifetime warranty
    - Free Fedex shipping within USA
    - International Fedex Shipping is flat $200
    - only charged when unit is ready to ship.

    Check out there website for more info: www.trostmotion.com

    This sale will run until January 31st or until the 30 units are allocated. Just email me (trostslider@icloud.com) your contact info and the unit you want, and Trost will send you a coupon code for purchase.

    I forgot to mention in my review, that I also took just the 50cm slider out and is awesome as a portable slider that needs no bracing. A great travel jib. It's nice having 2 different length sliders.

    Seen this Slider, and first thing came to mind was its solidity... Most certainly a different approach to most and most welcome is the addition of the extra axis with a second slider... Nice review Bob, and good to see you... On video at list... ;)

    Only thing that could make this an even more attractive Slider would be a way to mount a Belt w/Motor.


    PS: You posted this in the wrong section of this Forum Bob, you should have a Mod move it to the "Accessories for DSMC" section... ;)

    Thanks Ketch. They have had requests for a motor drive and they are looking at it seriously. Thanks for checking it out. It's so hard to describe in a video how smooth this slider is. It's smooth....

    When you say no bracing you mean you can mount the 50cm by itself just on a tripod?

    Can we buy the 50cm alone w/ discount?
