Abstract People hope to prevent short-circuiting caused by the oozing-out of flexure adhesive, to absorb distortion caused by the contraction of a soldered part by reducing the rigidity of a flexure, and to improve the quality of the soldered part by arranging pads adjacently to each other as much as possible when the bonding pad formed in a slider held in the flexure and the leading pad for a lead fixed to the platform of the flexure are soldered to each other. Holes are bored in a flexure portion near the soldered parts of the bonding pads of a slider and the leading pads of a lead end part. Thus, since adhesive for adhering the slider to a flexure tongue is moved downward from the holes, the adhesive is prevented from being brought into contact with the bonding pads.
