^^^ I have a simple Pioneer DC Plus, but depending on how quickly I drop the weight (mind you, I don't just drop it, but it's how quickly I lower it to horizontal and then clamp, etc.) will make a difference on bed stiffness. Also, this speed difference is not as much as you think it is. Also, this differs between poly and synthetic gut. With gut it's how much I let it settle at horizontal and then pull again to attain a bit more stretch. With poly it's how quickly I get to reference tension that seems to be the deciding factor because once it's at horizontal, it doesn't go beyond that as much as gut does.
