I can't, really!

I had my first 3 or 4 stringjobs done by stringers. They all would have used electronic tensioners, likely with prestretch settings. It's less likely (but still possible) that a prestretch was done by hand.

All I know is that the first time I strung it for myself I didn't do any kind of prestretch whatsoever, and boy oh boy was it livelier and spinnier. So lively, I guess, that I stopped noticing the blah period that had hit sometime around hour 20.
