    hi, so the gripper on my Alpha String Pal is starting to not hold on to the string tightly anymore. I already tried using alcohol to clean it, but it didnt help at all. The clamps were set as tight as possible, and the tension was 58 lbs so im not sure what exactly the problem is, but i hope you guys can help. Thanks

    Clean it again with a toothbrush or shoelace

    A pipe cleaner soaked in Isopropyl Alcohol works well too.

    Alcohol is a must to clean off all that residue from greasy strings. I probably end up cleaning my clamps every 10 frames or so.
