He makes some good points, but some bad technique.
And what is the bad technique?

In that configuration, the string's path is essentially the same whether it goes over or under the frame. Over is usually more convenient for the stringer.
if you have a diablo you should not need the adapter.
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege
