    I found that as I had learnt on a nice old B&H Regent, which had no slide triggers or rings that I had to deliberately set aside time to "learn" how to use them - now it just happens. I find that in much of the music I play though, that third slide is flicked out and it can remain out without too much drama - often having to be deployed later in the piece anyhow.

    This seems to me to mimic a comment Robin made either much earlier or perhaps in another thread :dontknow:

    Leaving the 'kicker' out tends to lesson the clicking. My Getzen 700S has o'rings to stop the noise and they work well, the Getzen Eterna 900 doesn't and I don't notice the sound, and the Harrelson Bravura, well I'm too busy enjoying myself to think on it.
