    Are there any problems with flying clamps and wide string spacing? The string spacing at the head and throat of the crosses is wider and looking at the Silent Partner videos the strings end up being squeezed together while clamping.

    The same thing happend on the mains, but to a lesser degree.

    Is this a problem that is worth considering?

    Does this mean you don't clamp the last few crosses by clamping on two crosses, but just one cross and use the mains to keep things in place?

    For my racket, the last two crosses at the throat are too far apart. I simply use a scrap string to fill the 2nd channel of the clamp. So, yes the mains help hold the clamp in place.

    Thanks,
