Default US Open pro stringers video (and how tight to tie knots)

hey guys so i was watching this time magazine report on stringers at the us open. pretty cool vid...

As I was watching, I had a question about how tight to tie knots. At 4:40 the guy ties off what looks like parnell, but uses that tool and more importantly VERY LITTLE pressure to tighten the initial loop.

usually im pulling up and shimmying down and pulling very very hard (using my starting clamp). Im rather surprised how little he pulls on that knot.

should I not be tieing my knots as hard as I am? How much pressure do u guys put on when pulling the initial loop?
