OK, I got my new Gamma x-2 machine. I set it up nicely. Got an old racquet to practice on (Head Pure Competition), got the string pattern from the Silent Partner web site, read directions and watched the video on the Silent Partner web site. But I'm still not sure what to do. It looks like I start by looping the string through the two center holes (1 T). But then what do I do? I see in the video that I am supposed to clamp the strings together, but I can't see how that accomplishes anything. There will be no tension on the strings at that point. When do I put a string in the string tensioner? I just don't get the concept. I think the best thing for me to do is to watch someone string a racquet (not the video, it proceeds too fast and doesn't provide a good view of what the stringer is doing). I'll probably catch on to the concept once I watch someone do it. After all, this is not rocket science.
