EDIT: Here is the video I was talking about

I have seen this video, but isn't the sharpie mark on the wrong place, shouldn't it be at the grommet not where the string is clamped on the tensioner. Correct me if I am mistaken, but as shown it seems the machine would not pull the second pull as far, not necessarily pull anymore string from the racquet. If one marked at the grommet and that mark was further away from the racquet after the second pull I would agree that that amount of string would have been "loose" in the racquet otherwise.
