Well thanks for responding I thought you were afraid to speak up. So if I use my lockout stringer and pull 60 lbs of tension with the diablo I should be able to put a scale inside the frame a take a reading of how much tension is being applied to the string. Correct?
Be very careful in choosing your words I am going to trap you and prove you are wrong along with everyone else.
