Glide Gear SYL-960 Overview

The SYL-960 Floor/Track Hybrid Tripod Dollyfrom Glide Gear features interchangeable wheels for use on dolly track or straight on the floor. It is machined from aircraft grade 6061 anodized aluminum alloy to tight tolerances for precision and strength. So, although this system is strong enough to be used with rigs up to 35 lb, it is lightweight and folds up to be carried in the carry bag. Once set up, you place your tripod straight on the dolly, and you can achieve smooth tracking shots whether using tracks or on the floor. To accommodate larger tripods, the legs will extend an extra 5 inches.

At the heart of the SYL-960 track dolly system is the sliding swivel track wheel system. These in-line track wheels are not only full 360° swivel but are also able to freely slide within the wheel housing in any direction by an extra inch. This means that the track can be imperfectly aligned in places and still not affect the smooth operation of the Glide Gear SYL-960 track dolly.

In addition to all of these features, the SYL-901 is a hybrid that can easily be converted into a rolling camera dolly with the included regular swivel wheel casters. Each caster wheel has 360° swivel and locking mechanism, so your camera won't roll away on its own when not in use.

Glide Gear SYL-960 Reviews

Oddly incompatible with standard dolly tracks.

I purchased this as well as the glide gear straight track so I could have a decent dolly system. However, even with the legs extended to their maximum, the dolly was about an inch or two too short to cover the width of the track. Two sets of wheels rest fine, but the third will barely make it to the track. It'll still work for the most park, but that set of wheels wont fit snugly over the track like it's supposed to. If I don't use the spacers then I can bring the tracks closer and it works just fine, but then I have to worry about the tracks rolling around. Very odd, don't know why they would make a hybrid dolly that's too short to work with dolly tracks.

Great  video tripod dolly

Item came very fast. I like the fact there are two sets of wheels so I can either roll along a smooth surface or use the other wheels to roll along pipes on a not so smooth ground. Only negative was box showed a tool to use with it which was not in the box and no pamphlet inside with contact info or changing wheels and a few other things. Not a game changer but disappointed int an otherwise superior product.

Better Than Expected

Awhile ago, I purchased the ProAm USA SolidTrax Universal Track Dolly and was a bit disappointed at its engineering. It was slightly flimsy, did not roll smoothly and the tripod seemed to torque a bit when slid along teh tracks. This is not a personal attack on Proam as I am sure the company founders are great folks. I own their ProAm USA SolidTrax Universal Platform Dolly and like it okay. The Proam dollies are not as good as the Glide Gear system on a few levels. Firstly, the Glide Gear dolly arms are stronger than the Proam and the tripod does not torque. The Glide Gear tripod dolly stays on the tracks and does not jump track like the Proam and you can adjust the Glide Gear arms to different lengths if you want to use different tracks. Plus, Glide Gear gives you caster wheels for smooth floor use if needed. The Glide Gear wheels are smoother rolling right out of the box and I did not have to adjust their tension. I am happy with my purchase.

It is functional. Many expectations should not be made. It is not different from other dollies of this type. In the transport bag do not fit the 3 extra wheels.

i don't use this often — i have a Dana dolly i use for most dolly shots. but the Dana won't push down the barrel without showing the track, so this was the cheapest way to get higher. it rides my dana dolly track (pipes from Lowe's) perfectly. my e-image tripod snaps right onto it, but you must take care when pushing the tripod when dollying, as it can tip out of the grips. there are no track spreaders included, but we did fine eyeballing it and sandbagging. a couple of runs back and forth and it was good to go, but you could make your own spreaders easily. my only complaint (referenced in other reviews) is that it does not fit in the bag when the skate wheels are on. the wheels must be changed with tools — not difficult, but they don't just snap on and off. so i'd love an alternate case that had room for the skate wheels, with a compartment/pouch to carry the casters. but this is one of the least expensive dolly solutions you can get, and it works well.

Good Track Dolly

By Ken
Rated 4 out of 5

Was looking for a dolly that could be used on a DIY motorized 1 1/4 PVC track system. This fit the bill. My only criticism is the wheel hardness. The wheels provided are quite soft, which makes the rolling resistance higher that it should be. I was able to replace with some hard (95+) skateboard wheels that fit the truck and work much better.

Can I collapse the tripod dolly with the track wheels on it for storage?
Asked by: David
You will be able to collapse the dolly with the track wheels connected, however the track wheels are a bit larger than the standard casters. It may not collapse all the way down.

question

Will this work with a Sachtler ENG 2 CF HD?
Asked by: Bruce L.
I don't see why it wouldn't. The holders for the tripod legs are adjustable so you can fit the feet of the tripod snugly. I would assume unless the tripod has really large feet on the bottom, almost any tripod would work with this dolly. I use a manfrotto tripod, and it works great.
