Prostringing said, "2R is less than reference. In fact it is actually at 1/2 reference plus whatever tension is gained from the string sliding back towards 2R from 1R." You agreed so tell me 2R gets to 1/2 reference to start and how the string slides back from 1R towards 2R. I am at a loss here trying to understand what you're saying.

I do agree the methods you use will keep tension on the outside mains. I'm suggesting and sharing a simple pattern that will work on any racket (not recommending although I prefer it over ATW) and easy to use with any type of stringer whether it be swivel, flying or a glide bar clamp machine.

EDIT: Actually I took Prostringing's quote a little out of context. I believe he was talking about at the 2:16 point in the video when only the four center strings had some tension whatever that tension may be.
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege
