I don't have a lot of experience with all this, but I do have a pair of 30" long calipers and have measured the length and width of my apdgt's, strung on a BAB cp machine (6 point), unstrung, and after re-stringing on my model H (2 point)

All measurement were within 1 to 1.5 mm of each other

At first, I was not totally overjoyed, I understand why, in that the cp machine strung thm at a straight 58 and 60 while I strung them on my model H at 56/52 and 52/49

My thoughts are that if you stretch the hoop, either along it's length or width, it may springback to close to right on it's unstrung dimensions, but what happens to the actual tension.

Seems logical that if you string the mains at 60 after coaxing the length to be a bit longer, then it must lose some tension when it springs back?

Does this make sense to anyone?
