Mikeler likes the 50/50, some like boomerangs, I prefer the s-hook. A simple answer to a very simple procedure.
To each his own. I'm not a big fan of 50/50 crosses, mainly because, like Jim, I have a good brake (though not the best) system. The OP never stated what machine they have, thus the jump to conclusions of alternate methods.

I respecfully disagree. Normally on a glide bar machine, the crosses are strung with one glide bar, but if you are doing a 50/50. You can used both glide bars, without using a starting clamp.* Though like COPEY said, it's moot since the NEOS and the like have a good brake system.

*-Any good stringer should have a starting clamp.
