First a disclosure. I consider James Pappas a good friend, but this is not an advertisement for him just an observation. I shoot in quite a few matches and keep up with as many as possible and I've noticed something. Shooters using the slider seem to do very well and I do mean very well. Now, this is not to say these are not good shooters to begin with, but, and I've not done this, but I believe shooters using the slider correctly (which means some work) probably have a higher average agg than those who do not. However, I've heard very little positive or negative about it.
Now, why do I mention this if it's not advertising? Well, we make a big deal out of indexing, which by admission of some of its own supporters is a minimal improvement, the slider, which appears to work and is tangible, seems to be going the way of the dodo bird. I have one and have used it with some success but I don't think I've put in the time to actually get maximum improvement from it. Has anyone else used one? If so, what's the verdict? Also, does anyone know any tips or tricks to setting one?
I would like to hear from James himself explaining exactly what the slider does and what is the optimum configuration.
