Whattt. Man I know you got alot of clout around here but I seriously disagree. i won't settle for anything more than 5% max loss off the machine on my string jobs. 10-20 that's way off and your never getting what you asked for. I ask customers do you want strung at X tension or off machine at X tension. And this is with any machine I may use.

By the way I have had large differences on strings that I didn't measure but usually only 1-2 lbs
