In my experience...
It is how and were the bike crashes that dictates the damage.
If you lowside on asphalt, the bike will slide nicely on a frame-slider.
If the bike makes it to the grass, or if crashed in the grass... its the luck of the draw on what happens.
If you have solid rearsets, a flip is just as likely.
Shorter sliders, like woodcraft, tend to lessen the chance of digging it.
Personally, I will use only Woodcraft sliders or nothing at all.
Less skilled riders are more likely to crash by running off the track or at the edge of the track, if this is true skip them.
If you are more likely to ride the brakes late into the corner, pushing the front end...
Then the bike is most likely to stay on the pavement for a good amount a time. In that case, they are great.
