Lakers4Life take a look at post #20 in that thread. Do you think Nadal plays with a wood racket? Evidently they are still being used even on the pro tour. Some stringers do not want to use a starting clamp to start crosses.

Stringer was worried the starting clamp was damaging (crushing) the Blast at that bend and might cause premature breakage.
