Hey guys I just recently purchased a Gamma Progression II stringing machine, and due to my lack of research found out how hard it is to string O3 and EXO racquets on it. I have 2 floating clamps and no starting clamp, and today I was having trouble trying to string my first racquet, a Prince EXO Graphite 100. When stringing the crosses, I found that the string makes a weird angle with the rotational gripper (since the gripper and tension bar is fixed to the base) in that sometimes the string won't even stay on the gripper. I was using the hip technique to keep the racquet in place but still had this problem. So what I did was readjust the support posts and moved them along the turntable until the angle was a good one. My question is: is this a good idea and will it affect/hurt the racquet/string/tension? I've searched through these forums but I just keep getting more and more confused. Can anyone clarify this for me? Forgive me for being a total stringing newbie :???: On a side note, whenever after I set the tension and clamp the string, the clamp doesn't stay right next to the frame (i.e. I reach the set tension, clamp the string on the inside of the frame right next to it, move the bar back up, and the clamp moves a little bit away from the frame and towards the center of the face.) Is this normal? Is this the "drawback" or is this because the clamps aren't set tight enough? Thanks for all help!
