I was wondering if anyone has applied anything to the bottom of their sleds to make them glide better?

I've been using the spray silicone for years. It's quick and easy. Just stand the sled up, spray and wipe down. It dries pretty fast and leaves a slick finish.

I have heard that PAM cooking spray works well to lube sled bottoms ??  Have yet to try it.

Old Thule roof rack and some curbside skis; a few bolts and angle aluminum at the hardware store.
A very easy pulling setup.

Don't know about PAM, or silicone spray... I just give mine a shot of WD40 on the bottom and rub it in from time to time.  Works fine, and is free because I already have many cans of it around the house.

just curious as to what size pvc pipe you are using for your rod holders? i am tinkering around with a custom rod holder out of pvc and am having trouble the 1" is to small in diam and the 1.5" seems to big wish they made a 1.25" diam
I don't have a problem I have an obsession😏

No, don't use WD40 on the skis.  Save it for the lures!  ;)

I bought a gallon jug of liquid snow plow wax. I use a small pump up pesticide sprayer to apply it on my otter sled and my portable base. I put it on the sleds before each of the 34,35 trips last season and I still have a 1/2 gallon left.  :thumbsup:

Just starting my mods on my new glide lite. I am downgrading from a mod'd jet sled. Just started by mocking a power auger setup I saw somewhere. I flipped my auger to put the head in the front however. Will keep updating pics til the finished product. Top bucket locks the Auger in place and will be removed for normal seating, and added if I go mobile with the bucket as Im fairly tall.

I get my sleds out for deer season.  I drag my deer out of the woods with them.

These are the mods I like!

Whitetail deer. The younger ones are great for chops and steaks, and the older larger ones go into venison sausage, all of which go on to the barbecue grill while fishing.
