    When mounted properly, some frames still seem to distort on the stringer making them 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch shorter. I watch it happen as I pull the mains from top to bottom but I can't correct it. What's going on?

    I don't think that is too much. On some soft frames like Head rackets you are going to see that. Using the Stringway TA for tension setting may help some.

    I just stung a prince tour team 100 this morning and it came off the machine exactly the same length as it went on. (yes I measured it)

    I took care to set my posts very well.
