I think you should. Loose clamps was just a way to save money on getting a cheaper stringer, but at the moment there are enough well priced machines with fixed clamps.
I had a fixed clamp on my first machine in 1980. I am getting old.....
That was the era of the wooden rackets (18*20) and the first "weirdo" rackets like Wilson T2000
