I too have a StrongTrack on my boat, that I bought with my new StackPack full batten main. It has worked very well, and like the other poster, find I can raise it by hand. The main thing I like about it is that there are no balls or bearings to ever replace. It's about as KISS as you can have in a addon track.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

If you can afford both...get both...if you can only afford one, get the sail slides/track. The electric winch can fail, and then you would have to horse the sail up against the added resistance of an electric winch and have no sail track to make your job easier, just when you need it most.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
