Guide light sled discontinued
« on: Nov 08, 2021, 11:05 AM »
So Iím on the hunt for a strikemaster guide light sled, of course I find out they have been discontinued. Has anyone found another brand thatís similar, I donít even know what to search for necessarily. I donít want a jet sled, I have several and my idea is to put the guide light sled in my shanty most of the time and just take it out when I want to hole hop.

Any help? Thanks!

Keep a eye out for a vintage frabill ice shuttle,they have not been made in many years but superior over the glide lite.its a windbreak along with a seat and storage sled underneath the seat.wont even need a shanty with a ice shuttle.

I am a big fan of the Glide Lite sled as well. Probably my favorite piece of ice fishing equipment. No idea why Strikemaster discontinued them. I believe it was 3 years ago or so. And I have not seen anything else on the market that's similar. Your best bet is to keep an eye on Craigslist or FB Marketplace for a used one. They are getting harder and harder to find.

Discontinued? All the more reason for me to hang on to mine.

Yep I went as far as to contact Strikemaster directly to see if they had any hidden in their warehouse lol but they said no. Iíll be on the search on fb for sure

I was fortunate last fall to find one on craigslist. New in box for $60! I'm almost finished with my livescope setup on the glide lite. Like others said, keep browsing FB marketplace and CL. Good luck!
