    Im having a hard time stringing my prince vortex mp. The problem is that it has staggered string pattern and im having trouble holding tension with the flying clamps on the ats ss 2 stinger. Are there any tricks or special tools to make this work better? Any info will help.

    soulincontrol, just angle the clamps to match the plane of the strings.

    Gaines -

    there is no real common plane. The vortex is one of the frames with the offset grommets so you get a twisted action between the strings.

    Yeah, the strings make a 30(ish) degree angle. Like this...

    ()>-----<() that's a racquet cross section..

    I guess you're just gonna have to clamp closer to the middle, but get as close to the frame as you can, w/out slipping.
