Mounting six point
 
How tight do you set the racket on a six point stringer? I only found one video on youtube. I used to snug them up pretty good but lately I have been trying to mount with as little pressure as possible. I have started to pay more attention to how much the racket deforms when mounting and it does not take much pressure to elongate or squeeze the racket.

"finger tight" is the rule of thumb. I'd even go as far as to say if you require a lot of force from using even your pinky and thumb, you're going too tight. Really, all you need to do is snug up the mounts where the frame is not wobbling around, and you're good to go.

This, also, "finger tight" only happens if equipment is clean and in good shape.
