    Instead of using flying clamps on the inside and anchoring them to 2 strings, could you either use the flying clamps or buy starting clamps and put anchor them on the OUTSIDE of the frame to prevent the drawback associated with flying clamps?

    Can't be done. If you have your string clamped outside of the frame, how would you weave the next string and pull tension on it without the clamp being pinched against the frame?

    You could only do it when you are starting to string the mains. Beyond that I agree with David.

    Remember . . . You're after a consistent string bed, not a perfect one.

    I am too, that way when I hit the frame (often) I think about how I have just saved all the wear and tear on my (perfect) string bed! But think of it another way, with a "perfect stringbed" if (or when) you miss a shot there's no one to blame but your technique or athleticism! :lol:
