Oben MFR4-5 vs Velbon Super Slider Macro Rail vs ?

I am just getting started in macro and am looking to get a macro slider rail and my budget is up to $150. My camera is a Fujifilm X-T2 and either a 18-55 or 55-200 zoom used with extension tubes. The camera has focus bracketing built-in which should come in handy.

Two that look interesting are the Oben MFR4-5 and Velbon Super Slider Macro Rail. Does anyone here use either? What do you like or not like about it?

The Oben is on sale now at B&H for $80.00.

I want to have the ability to shoot at any angle or straight down so I need a macro rail that does not creep.

I am open to any suggestions too!
