I was talking about the Babolat configuration. I makes not difference if you have an electronic or lockout the diablo can not and does not lessen the stress on the string in the gripper. If you take a Babolat machine and run the string straight through the gripper and not around the diablo it will not make a difference.
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege...
