By golly I think you are right on there.
EDIT: And that is the whole point of my argument that it works the same on an electronic (like a Babolat) as it does on a lockout (like my Gamma 6004.) It is just easier tonshow how the force on a lockout gripper has to be the same whether you go throu the diabloor not.
