Nightfire: If you use a LO, the machine stops pulling when it reaches ref tension. The string, since it is under tension, starts to lose that same tension so that it no longer at the tension the machine locked out at. If using DW or CP, tension starts to be lost as soon as the string is clamped. Again, the string will lose tension to relieve stress. Mikeler is correct that strings will ultimately lose between 10 and 25% of the desired ref tension. The low end is prem gut and the high end is poly.
