Well, my school has a Prince/Ektelon Neos 1000 stringer, which is about 1100 USD online (so I'd assume it's pretty good). I think it is of the lockout type (crank till spring stops, then clamp it to move on to the next string), and it comes with two long glide bars on it.
Now, my questions are:
1. How do you switch from mains to crosses or vice versa without losing tension (this is assuming one piece stringing of course). The glide bars can only be mounted parallel to each other, aka, you can't mount one horizontal and the other vertical (with respect to the racquet). So essentially, I have three clamps, the two clamps on the glide bars, and the string tensioning crank (which can be used as a clamp). So since each glide bar has to be parallel to the other, to switch the orientation on one glide bar, I"d have to remove the other glide bar too, leaving me with only one clamp (the string tensioner crank) to secure a string which has two ends (One end where yous tart, and the other end for where you are about to switch from main to cross). Should I just instead just resort to two piece stringing (aka tie off at both ends)?
2. How do you tie off without losing tension? Like when you tie off on a lockdown stringing machine, then you take the end of the clamped string and tie it in a hole, is there a way to minimize the tension loss? Or do you just try andmake it as tight as possible with your fingers (or pliers in my case) and just hope it doesn't affect the overall tension by too much?How to add images to Members' Forum posts and replies here...
