Yes, it can be putting too much force on the valve casings.
I frequently use my 3rd slide for playing.
I'm saying if it's not a throw then the tightness won't matter. My Couturier has really tight slides but they're not ment to move on the fly
Now if they are supposed to be able to be mobile while playing then yes, I like them to be as smooth and as fast as my valves
After making sure the legs are parallel, I work tight slides in and out with a bit of valve oil mixed with slide grease while watching TV or whatever. I remove the offending slide every few minutes and wipe it off, reapply the mixture, and go to it again. It eventually reaches the "sweet spot" and I stop.
This. Also you would probably better off with a heavy slide grease..probably..
