1 cm is quite a lot. What machine is yours?
So far I have strung three rackets on my x-2: fischer pro #1, Yonex RDS 001 Mid, and a babolat PST Ltd. The fischer and Babolat were both shorten by about 0.5 cm while the Yonex was intact.
I am pretty sure all the rackets were set up securely the same way on the stringer but have no idea why and how to prevent the deform.
