Tony, how much did you put on? Y'all have a lot of sand , shells, rocks , car parts and anything else in that river. Poly would probably be your best bet!

Never had any problem with my quick slick steel flex first then 4 gallons of quick on a 14-8. If you spray it it goes on thicker

I call bull**** on that. We have used quick slick a few times through the marsh, over roots ,breaking myrtles , and flying rock roads just because we can and never had those kind of issues!!!! Sounds like you are either mistaken on what you have been running or not applying properly. It's durability is unquestioned as far as I am concerned along with how well it slides around on the hill.

And if u read thouroly what I wrote never said it wasnt slick,its slick as u would want & runs the hill just fine,just dnt think its goin to last more then 8-10 trips & thers no way I can afford to spend 300+ every 10 trips,this subject is like beatin a dead horse been doin my homewrk on these bottoms since aug. Of last year,like I said thats my opinion

I'm calling gouges in your slick bottom from running grass and sand bs you had to hit more than that if not y'all have some of the baddest grass I have ever heard of. And as far as your post bothering me it don't but comeon get a little more realistic with what you run.

Robert, I was thinking the same thing. It does totally depend on the riding area tho. I think terry has proven durability of slickbottom running dry LOL

well i went over to harbor freight and picked up one of the texture sprayes for 25 bucks. grinded and cleaned the bottom and shot on 2 gallons with the gun, came out looking great and thick. should last me a good bit since i dont run the hill to often but when i do i want that stuff to be slick and slick it is. i talked with brian today and he suggested i wait till tomorrow to flip and it and drop the rigging. so tomorrow ill take care of that :usa:
