Just thinking about this today. If you don't use the diablo all the time you should see the sometime the tensioner is closer to the racket and some time farther away. This creates a different angle going into the gripper. The higher the string is (closer racket) the less force is required to lock out the crank.
Also the graduations on the tension dial are calibrated for a specific force to lock out the crank. if you string is above the diablo it would require less force to lock sonif you adjust at 60 lbs it may be right on but if you change the tension nyou could be off.
I think younshould always use the diablo no matter what type stringer you have.
