Jerry, I believe this is also an issue with a lock out machine. When a string is being held by the tension head on a lock out machine, but is not clamped off it will experience a higher rate of creep or tension loss until it is clamped off. It will still experience some creep even after it's clamped off, but it's more pronounced on a longer string, which is in effect what one has when the string is only being held by the tension head. Consistency is important on these machines too, IMO.
