The glide head displays flying height characteristics in conjunction with suspension. Its sensitivity affects glide test performance. To enhance the sensitivity, it was found that change of gram load in suspension was the main feature that can contribute to higher glide detection resolution. In this paper, improved resolution of glide detection is illustrated in terms of the least square slope of the disk rotational speed to flying height.
