Abstract

A magnetic head slider is shown which flies at a small spacing above a moving magnetic disk due to the combined pressure profile produced by a front taper section, a central etch pocket, and side rails which extend only part way to the trailing edge of the slider so that the slider flies with a large pitch angle with the magnetic transducer located centrally of the trailing edge of the slider closest to the magnetic disk surface.
