I wrote this in another post. I'm interested to see if people agree or disagree: Most MP racquets with a 16x19 or 18x20 pattern are well served by quality flying/floating clamps with an experienced user. However, if you're stringing irregular string beds or shapes, Fixed or even bar clamps are a much better option. Personally, I feel that the limitations of flying clamps are overhyped, especially when stringing a racquet with parallel strings and small gaps between strings. But they definitely don't work as well outside of these parameters as alternative styles of clamp.
