    shape after stringing

    The shape of the racquet after coming out of the machine should depend only on the difference between the tensions for the mains and the crosses.

    I put a post on another threat about this:
    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=295068&page=2:

    The advantage of a direct mounting system (with inside supports) like the Prince some SP and the SW machines have is that you have a very good check on the tension:
    When the racquet has come loose from the inside supports (the length has grown) the tension on the crosses was too high, and the other way around.

    Optimally, that's true. But not always the case. Some really flexible rackets, starting way back with the Prince Classic, changed shapes when strung on a 2 point mounting system. I've seen a few Head Radicals do the same on more modern 2-pointers. I've seen some Heads change shape on a 6 point machine too though.

    2 pt or 6 pt you still need to pay attention to mounting the racquet properly.
