    Has anyone used a Mutual Power starting clamp?

    If so, how does it compare to other starting clamps?

    If you just use a starting clamp to start your mains or on an ATW pattern, they are all going to do the same job, for a period of time. What you gain from a better clamp (Babolat, GSS, Alpha) is longevity. The good ones just don't wear out unless you're stringing a lot of racquets.

    Now if you use a starting clamp as a "jumper" in case your string is too short and you need some help on that last pull, I have noticed a BIG difference between the good clamps and the average clamps. Nothing is more frustrating than having a starting clamp slip in this situation.

    I started off with a $25 Eagnas and now I have a $50 babolat. The Eagnas worked just fine until I felt I needed a better one. A Mutual Power will be very similar to the Eagnas.

    I bought a mutual power starting clamp but I only use it to start my mains and crosses. Works fine. I have nothing to compare it to though.
