DD what you are talking about I did to start the mains in this video:
Only exception is I never put the starting clamp at the head. The racket in the video above start in the throat and when that happens I tension the two right (long side) mains then move to the left.
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege...
