Recorded it with a Canon T3i w/ a Sigma 30mm f1/4 lens.

Yes the machine is a bit low, but since I am at my college apartment, it was the only place I had where I could rotate the racquet freely.

Gamma Tech said in a previous reply that ..

Use the largest (i.e. tallest) spacer (i.e. load spreader) available that doesn't touch the grommets or block the grommet holes. It spreads the load vertically and also prevents the racquet from accidentally popping off the mount.

Since your video was showing people how to string using the X-2, it might be good to include the support adapters being installed.

Anyways, to each his own and how they want to string to get the best results possible.

I've seen a few rackets that have indents/cracks in the finish in the middle of the head and throat due to incorrect mounting like this.
Okay, well I made a note in the video. I will use them next time.
