Let me expand on this. If the string is not a tie off string it does make much difference. If you are going to tie the string off the closer the clamp is to the frame and the closer the grommet is to the anchor string the better. This is primarily to reduce drawback. I could make the tie off string lose quite a bit of tension but should not effect overall string bed stiffness that much.
