Varavon has a Slider Balance Weight for Sliders to help achieve smooth sliding glides when using a slider. When you are booming up your camera in order to get smooth shots without having inconsistent movements, an extremely fatigued arm or varied speeds, making use of weights on a pulley system is one simple solution. Varavon has made a practical Slider Balance Weight for Sliders that makes use of everyday water bottles as weights to give your slides more consistency. In the video below I show you how this works, what pieces you get in Varavon’s kit and how your shots will look while using the product.
Right now, Varavon is running a Holiday Special on select Sliders and their LCD Viewfinder the Multi Finder for 20% OFF. You will also get FREE Shipping in the US and with this deal and receive the Slider Balance Weight and a Sling Focus for FREE – sweet deal, especially if you are currently looking to purchase a slider or viewfinder.

As long as there is room to drop the weights, you can use this method for both vertical and horizontal slides. The pulley system gives smooth steady and consistent slides to your shots. I adjusted the speed of my slides by adding friction to the pulley line simply by squeezing it with my fingers.
