Thanks for the feedback guys. It was purchased brand new from Tennis Warehouse and the issue has always been there for the first string on the mains and the first cross but now it's gotten worse.
It's not the racquet moving it's the crank assembly not locking out properly so that once desired tension is reached I can pull further or the assembly can move back towards the racquet.
I should have held onto my Ektelon Neos. The guy at tennismachines said it was the last one made in San Diego and a better machine than the new ones.
