    I have strung a few times on my new 6-pt mount machine, and everything has been great. Now I have my first tapered beam frame to string, a Head FXP Instinct (23/25/21 beam), and I am puzzled at how to get this one to work with the side mounts. The 3 and 9 parts of the head are wider than the head/throat, so the side mounts won't fit underneath the frame without raising up the throat and/or head of the racquet. How is this typically handled?

    I have the racquet mounted now, and the throat is mounted touching the base. with all the side mounts adjusted, the head is a few mm above the base. so you are saying it is just fine for me to string like this? I just want to make sure before i start.

    by the way, it is a mutual power 7600. I couldnt be happier with it so far.

    The head and throat areas don't need to be on the base of the tower. It's more important to have the racquet on the bottom surface of the side mounts.

    everything has been excellent so far. the crank works very smoothly, and the clamps are very easy to use.
