I just got my order for a reel of Forten Nylon to practice on.


Muscle, it's definitely not the safest practice, but I've never had a base clamp fail on me, which is why I release it (the trailing one). Much faster, and when one is stringing at tournaments, or 15-20 frames a day, it is much faster, and efficient.
