If you leave the tension head below the racket you will have more even tension on every string. With the tension head pulling at the level of the string bed you will have very little (if any) tension loss due to friction where the string bends at the frame on the center mains and crosses. Raising the level of the tensioner to the level of the stringbed gives you a built in proportional string bed as there is greater angle / friction on the outside strings for mains and crosses.

You be the judge I like the tension being pulled on the level of the stringbed.
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege
