Will try to string a racket tonight again and see if it can be 100% consistent. It would feel good if I could use it without having to think about string slippage every 2 minutes during the stringing process,,,
That's weird. Maybe the parts weren't cleaned real well before assembly. I was thinking the plates weren't machined aggressive enough, but it sounds like there may have been debris/funk on the plates preventing proper grip. Hope it all works out, it looks like a pretty sweet machine
