    knob doesn't match scale gamma x-st

    Gamma Europe don't know how to adjust it. I've also failed to find out the purpose of the grub screw.

    knob doesn't match scale gamma x-st

    Yes, I checked 50 and 60lbs on the RAB barrel one, some digital fish scales and Goat Stringer's Piab(I think that's what it's called) and they were all pretty accurate.

    Interesting, thanks for your reply. I'll try Racquetune, although it's got some terrible reviews on Android.

    knob doesn't match scale gamma x-st

    "obsessing"...good grief. I've already said it's not a big problem but I'd like to have it back to where it originally was which was spot on. Rather than talk about calibration or consistency of pull speed - It's ok to say "I don't know" I thought I would ask here in case there was an easy fix...

    Favorite multifilament

    I recently tried Head Velocity and WeissCannon Explosiv, both full bed @56 lbs Liked them both, very comfy and smooth. A bit of string re-aligning on the Explosiv but nothing terrible. Ordered a reel of the Velocity

    knob doesn't match scale gamma x-st

    It is really close, probably about 1/2 lb. And yes, I know it is not a problem and doesn't really matter in the scheme of things. But I would like it to be right which must be possible. The grub screw seems to have no purpose.

    knob doesn't match scale gamma x-st

    Hi, I have a Gamma x-st. The number on the knob doesn't match with the gauge - ie. in this example 54 lbs should match with 0 on the knob. I tried loosening the grub screw and rotating the knob but both the knob and the gauge still move in sync so no help. I tried pulling on the knob with the...

    Mains, Pulling tension two at a time!

    Andy, looks very interesting, just needs to be able to string the crosses as well, and build a robot to operate it!

    Gamma X-ELS

    I have found that when I do the original double pull I need to be careful not to put the two strings too low in the tennis head gripper. If I do, there is a chance of knicking them on one of the little springs in the gripper. I never noticed this on my old machine but am aware of it now!
