    1. Is it possible to string crosses using flying clamps without using a starting knot, without using a starting pin, and without double pulling? (I have a starting clamp if it matters.)

    2. When moving a flying clamp to tie off the first cross with a finishing knot, the racquet supports get in the way, making it impossible to clamp the string and tie off the crosses. How could I bypass this? I'm talking about this action here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIbR7OzJJ5k&feature=youtu.be&t=2m43s

    I have a Gamma X-2 by the way. Thanks for any help in advance.

    Sure run in the first two crosses and use the starting clamp on the first cross and pull tension on the second. Then clamp the two together with a flying clamp. Wen you tension the top cross to take off th starting clamp release the flying clamp to tension the top cross.

    If you can clamp the top cross use a starting knot and pull tension on the top cross first to stretch the string then double pull the top two crosses and clamp them.

    Could you clarify what you mean by this?
