    Joe... I currently have 3 of them on various guns. Have had one on a gun for over 15 years and still works like new. None better for the price, in my opinion. Dan Thome (Trap2)

    Thanks for response, but I cannot pull this site up and could not the last time I looked for it. That is reason I was asking for a verbal discription.

    Nice looking and nice pricing Adam.

    Rick, here's the basics - page comes right up here:....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    The Slick Slide [previously AKA Clyde Slide] is different from other Systems because that it uses a spring cylinder instead of a hydraulic cylinder, which is to slow for quick recoil, and air cylinders that are known for leaking and failing at the wrong time. In other words this system will work for many years, shot after shot without failing.

    The Slick Slide allows the Shotgun to recoil underneath your cheek, that way your face doesn't get rubbed raw after hundreds of rounds. The Slick Slide also gives the shooter a complete adjustable comb. (windage or side to side, and elevation to give you your perfect sight alignment.)

    I have had a gra-coil, soft touch, g-square, and now have a clyde slide. In my opinion for the money it can't be beat. The g-square would be next, but set up the same way about $550 more. It is just as smooth as any of the others.

    Just my opinion.

    After properly weighing the system it adds about 12 oz to the stock.

    Thanks,

    I like it better than my soft touch. You have the 4 way comb with Clyde Slide and my old soft touch just elevates. I glad to hear that someone is helping to keep the Clyde Slide going. Clyde and his wife are great people. Joe from Weiser

    Clyde has done two for me. The second was only recently, but the first one was cone approximately five years ago. I really like the system and it is by far priced the most competively. Clyde is very easy to work with also.

    I've know Clyde for many years and have never heard anything but positive reports on his work.

    As far as I am concerned the Clyde Slide is the finest recoil system on the market today and have had them on 2 Ljutic's, 2 870's and a BT 100. Won't shoot a gun long without one. The gun sliding under the fully adjustable comb which stays with your face when the gun fires makes it very easy to stay into your gun. Clyde is one of the finest men I know but is cutting way back so you may want to check out www.slickslide.vpweb.com.
