Pro Stringer Clamp Fix
For anyone who owns a Pro Stringer and is having trouble with their clamps slipping when stringing Multi-fibre, a fix has been posted on the PS forum.
For reference I've posted a copy below:
If you have followed Nikki Roenn tips and are still having problems with your clamps slipping on the strings, the following procedure should provide a remedy.
You will need:
2 3/32 allen keys
1 large Philips head screw driver
Some 80 grit wet and dry sand paper
Step 1. Disassemble the clamp by removing the two counter sunk Allen head bolts with the Allen keys.
Step 2. Remove the tensioning bolt with the Philips head screwdriver, the metal side plates will now come off the clamp body.
Step 3. Using the 80 grit sand paper scuff the inner surface of each metal side plate where it makes contact with the string.
Step 4. Wipe the side plates clean and reassemble the clamp using the reverse of the above steps.
I was having lots of problems stringing Multi filament string (Solinco Vanquish 17G) when starting the mains.
After doing the above proceedure, I’ve tested my clamps using Vanquish 17G tensioned up to 65lbs and they are now holding securely.
