If I don't respond, it's because I have better things to do than to keep restating the obvious & thinking you will even consider anyone else's position. BTW It's probably time for you to gracefully exit, as your arrogance is starting to show. You have made many great contributions to this forum, but lately it seems that you have chosen to be a jerk!
Sorry i was just trying to coax you on I should not have said that. I agree the tension inside the racket will be the same (for all practical purposes.) Now what determines what that tension will be is the force applied by the string to pull the gripper assembly up to lock it. And if that force is the same on the other side of the diablo whether you use the diablo or not how can the diablo possibly have taken any stress off the string in the gripper when it has applied the same force to lift it?
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege...
