Comments about Matthews Multifunctional DC-Slider:

We hoped that the convenience of a jib and a dolly in one might result in the ability to haul fewer bags on flights, but the bag this thing comes in is a big as a coffin. We found it better to have a dedicated portable jib and a dolly as separate pieces of equipment. Perhaps an extra bag or two, but manageable.

The build quality of the DC Slider is exceptional. And the counterweight helps to ensure that the movement is a smooth as possible. The jib function doesn't provide quite the range that a dedicated portable jib would give you, so as a jib I'd remove 1 star. But if you're moving it around in a van it's a great all-in-one that is built like a truck.
