Hello,

I have access to a matthews dolly with skatboard wheels. Can anyone point me in the diretion of a rental house that has flex track for such a setup? Circular, and curved movements.

Thanks,
Chris

You might have issues running a Matthews on flextrack. I don't know what the weight load capacity is on flex but MSE dollies are pretty heavy. You may also run into issues with leveling. There's no good way to level flextrack that I know of so you're stuck using it on level ground which usually means indoors on floors. At that point, you're usually better off using the pneumatic dolly wheels.

I'm sure you've probably thought about these issues in advance but just in case, I thought I'd offer up my thoughts.
