UPT Removable Slider/RDS Can't Post

Does anyone have experience of the UPT removable slider and/or RDS on terminal openings? I was thinking of buying one and would appreciate any comments/feedback, particularly issues experienced, complexity of system (rigging up/packing time.......haven't actually seen one in the flesh!).

Being more specific, anyone out there using one on a Velo?? !!

Hey Rem,
Thanks for that. I keep hearing different opinions of whether the PD RDS is ok for terminal openings (the manual says not!), so was thinking of the UPT one (they tell me it's ok at terminal!).

BTW...is it the UPT one you use?

i've used the UPT system in ALL situations and if you pack it correctly it's fine with everything. just make sure it's packed correctly

the PD rds was the UPT rds, and the UPT rds was the PD rds...
nothing change.
the velo open maybe not so well, so, they dont "assume" terminal opening... Tongue
something about the lines, she can broke on terminal opening?
for sure on my old FX, i dont use the "SNAP".
and i turned in a pretty turnkey, the "SWIVEL".

Jumping a few years on UPT/Scott's RDS. Works great on all terminal jumps.!
