You know, when we were using them back in the '70s, I don't think there was a great deal of concern about the lever angle...as long as the lever arm didn't bottom out. The degree range for the arm was not that great...you pretty much were between 2:00 and 3:00(more or less, I reckon ) when stringing a 'normal' string. No poly and not much Kevlar 'back then'...something like Blue Star would likely bottom out on the first pull, so a second might be necessary. A few others like Guttex might be stretchy enough to bottom out on the first pull.
