    Has anyone done this yet with a klippermate? just wondering how hard it was with the floating clamps especially on the last few crosses. do you lose a lot of tension when you release the clamps, from having to squeeze the strings so far?

    thanks in advance,

    I think someone brought this up in Racquets. http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=451913

    Though I'm going to say this maybe one racket that can't be strung with Floating clamps, unless you use a Stringway Tripple clamp and used the outside clamps. But that's just my theory.

    thanks for the reply, i'm the one who posted it in the racquets section, too. Hoping someone that has strung one on an actual klippermate will chime in and tell me how it went.

    In the second picture in the link it appears as though they clamped the third and fourth crosses where the spacing appears to be about right wonder why they didn't clamps the first and second which appear to be farther apart? Wonder what will happen when the spacing is even wider like on the Stream 99? Whatever, good luck on your new clamp.

    EDIT: I don't know for sure but it appears they are using an 18 main racket. I am guessing it is not going to spread far enough for what you want.

    It's a pain to string wide pattern racket with floating clamps. You would lose some tension on 99s. So, you might have to compensate with higher tension at the bottom part.
