We're very happy to announce that we will be working with Canadian Curler Reid Carruthers in promoting his new ProSlide delivery aid product!
Carruthers currently skips a Winnipeg-based rink on the World Curling Tour. Carruthers is a former junior provincial champion in 2003 and a Manitoba provincial mixed champion in 2008, both as a skip.He previously skipped a team with Jason Gunnlaugson as third to a provincial final against Jeff Stoughton in 2006.Carruthers would later join the Stoughton rink as his second, in 2010. Carruthers won his first Manitoba provincial title playing for Stoughton at the 2011 Safeway Championship. Carruthers went on to win his first Tim Hortons Brier at the 2011 event in London. The Stoughton team defeated the Glenn Howard team 8 - 6 in the final.The team went on to represent Canada at the 2011 Ford World Men's Curling Championship, which they would eventually win after only losing one game throughout the competition.Carruthers would win two more provincial championships with Stoughton, in 2013 and 2014.
In 2014, the Stoughton rink went its separate ways, and Carruthers would form his own team with Braeden Moskowy, Derek Samagalski and Colin Hodgson. This team made an appearance and a great run to the finals at the 2015 US Open of Curling as well as qualifying for the 2015 Tim Horton's Brier in Canada.
