You will then be able to tell RDL what it needs.

I have had three RDL seats.
RDL seats are great. I have had three! They have earned the Bigdon Seal of Approval! Whatever that's worth.
Good idea. I'm off on Sunday, ill try it then. I really want this thing right, its the most comfortable seat I've ever felt.

the seat bucket on my seat concepts seat on the Wee is too far back for me. same for a buddy of mine who bought the SC seat. he called SC and they couldn't change the location of the bucket since their foam comes pre-molded. may not be an issue with Russell...

It is vinyl, so that is probably a contributing factor. The Russell is custom made, so the pocket can be anywhere within reason.
