Griptec Pulley VS All other brands

Hey guys is there really a difference between the griptec pulleys and all other brands that donít have the griptec coating? Iím just thinking if the belt was going to slip anywhere it would be at the Balancer pulley since thatís whatís actually driving the belt.

Can't speak for griptec vs the rest, but because of the smaller diameter, you're gonna slip up top, not at the balancer.

I have a griptec. It does give more "traction" for the belt. Especially for the "not made for supercharger green belts".

Too much surface area on the balancer to slip there
