Xaos Slider? Can't Post

Does anybody have a used Xaos slider that they want to get rid of? I have 2 FXs and get hard openings every once in a while! I've heard that the brass grommets on the Xaos slider will help contribute to softer openings. If so, please email me at zaktessier@yahoo.com.

Personally I don't think its the brass grommets, its the actual size of the slider, they are huge. A buddy of mine jumps one and while it wont cover his bed the slider would make a great pillowcase. If you can wait for the next weekend I'll get some measurements for you, and find out if he has an extra

If you really want to tame those openings, send them into Precision Aerodynamics, and have the X mod done.

Better yet IMO, sell em' and buy a couple of Xaos's

I believe there is an issue with using brass on vectran lines. You might want to check on this.
