JVX Slider Can't Post

I've been noticing a lot of speed being diminished when I start plaining out.
I looked at the some footage and saw that the sides of the slider were open and definitely causing me to slow down a lot.
I can't afford an RDS system right now and I can't reach the back of my rig to be able to tie it down.
Is there anything else I could do for now while I save up for an RDS system?

twist the slider and double-wrap it with your slider stow.

Do you know of any plans online I could go by?

I built mine by copying another. ask a jumper if you can borrow his slider M-F for a week to draw up some plans for one. its remarkably simple imho

+1 that's what I did with my second one. The first I just looked at a reg slider and figured out what to do from there.

Thanks guys, I'm sure one of my fellow swoopers wouldn't mind me borrowing one.
I'll let you know how it goes and I'll post some pictures after I'm done.

Just got done making one for myself... I'm not a rigger, but I know my way around a sewing machine. My job requires attention to detail so no sweat...

Buy some rings for whatever you want to do, lookma sold me a set for about $60 plus about 25$ in materials and 4 hours later.... Here it is. Still working out the terminal openings, and testing it later in the week. The thing with the jvx is you need the extra flaps as well. So you're going to need to make a hybrid of what you borrow and what you have now.
