My statements regarding lessened tension at the linear gripper are based on the Babolat machines & not lock out machines. On the CP machines, the gripper & diabolo relationship never changes. The "pull" is measured as the whole assembly moves. If Irvin is basing all of his argument on a lock out mechanism, that is a different issue, although his early statement that "I believe I seen a Babolat video that said it relieves the pressure on the gripper. Can't understand that but who am i to argue", would indicate that he was talking about the Babolat configuration as well.

Cheers,
