Ha! You should have tried to string the F200 on the very popular Model D Ektelon machine of the early '80s. Even as a two-point mount, the Model D couldn't properly support the throat brace. Later models of the Ektelon handled that problem

Depending on the Bab machine you're using, it MIGHT be possible to flip the racket end to end and get proper support by mounting 'backwards'. Again, that depends on the model machine you have. It's been quite a while since I faced that problem.
