The less elasticity in a string the more difficult it is to maintain the tension on your knot.
My electronic machine has a special "knot button" which raises the set tension by 10%.
10%...That seems like a lot. On a 60# string job, that would be a 6# increase on tie offs making tie off setting 66#. I guess your "knot button" knows what it is doing. I couldn't find that button on my crank machine...
