I tension the cross by dropping the dropweight bar and then release the flying clamp from the previous cross and then use it to clamp the current cross. Is this not typical?

I figured it helped to take up a bit of the drawback from clamping and by appearances is seems to. I've strung less than a dozen racquets in my life though so am curious.
The clamps in a fixed clamp machine don't slide over the whole width of the machine's table. And each clamp would not be able to reach the other side of the stringbed, closest the tensioner. But I've found a hybrid of the 2 methods to be very quick and useful. Thanks again drakulie.
