    1- what is the general tightness of the mounts. Tighten until racquet doesn't move, hand tighten, crank it tight?

    2- during stringing is it normal to here the frame making little noises. Not cracks, but little noises that sound like its under pressure and flexing/forming... Or should it be tight and quiet?

    1. Tight enough so the frame doesn't move, but not so tight as to deform the frame.

    2. Some strings make noises. PSGD in particular.
    With an O Port, it may be the brake that is slipping.
    The frame should Not make noises.

    Yeah, those squeaks and groans can be scary if you are not expecting them.:)

    Lightning XX sounds like my clamps are going to break in half.
