Anyways, it took me a while (I strung a head youteek with the free gamma syn gut) but was easy enough. Its a lot of labor though.
Also, I bought the extra clamp when I bought the machine but didnt use it at all. When/where would I used the clamp?
Do you mean a "starting clamp"? If yes: Starting crosses (See "Yulitle" (youtube.com/yulitle
) video regarding starting crosses with a starting clamp). Pulling string and tying (see "Yulitle" video on tightening knots). "Jumping" when string not long enough to reach tensioner (Use with additional piece of string. See http://www.keohi.com/tennis/misc/startingclamp.htm
). Some "specialized" racquet patterns. Backing up another clamp when starting mains when forces are the greatest on a clamp.
