Right, but I assume what causes that arm drop is the string not getting fully tensioned in the turn. If you use the 2-clamp method, that tension loss stays in there and multiplies as you go. If I use the 1-clamp method, I can readjust the arm after it drops a bit... which makes me feel like I'm making up for that bit of tension loss.

Either way, I can't imagine there is a significant difference. Thanks for the reply.
