SlideTracker provides you with valuable feedback so you can improve your consistency and control - and make shot after shot, at every weight.
Key features:
-measures distance, speed, and times
-instant audio feedback using earbuds while you are sliding
-stores your practise results for later analysis on a computer
-attaches quickly and easily to your broom or stabilizer
-doesn’t affect your sliding or delivery

SlideTracker helps you practice sliding most effectively. By measuring only sliding speed, it reduces the temptation to push or drag the rock to make a shot. A key aspect of the delivery is the push out of the hack. SlideTracker helps you develop the “muscle memory” necessary for consistent shooting.

During the slide, SlideTracker rolls on the ice and measures distance and time. The audio tells you maximum speed and either speed at one second intervals, or times such as back line-to-hog or tee line-to-hog. (These times are a valuable reference if you use a stopwatch during competition.)

Internal file storage allows you to connect to a computer via USB and iPad via bluetooth for more detailed analysis and graphing of speed and time.
