I finally have a fully updated stringing set up. An Alpha Pioneer DC Plus. It really is a fantastic set up. My only current (minor) problem is that I'm having to adjust some of my practices I developed from using flying clamps. One habit I'm trying to break is my old method of starting mains. My old way is very simple and I can't figure out what the disadvantage to it is. I simply clamped one of the strings with a starting clamp outside of the frame and pulled tension on the other string. I clamped it off and continued with a couple of more. Obviously the clamped string would have less than ref. tension, but this was fixed when I repulled to remove the clamp. Now, I've been using the method in which you pull both mains, set anchor clamp as far from the tension head as possible, and then use a starting clamp on that same main. This feels like extra steps, but I'm sure there's a reason for it. What are the benefits of starting mains this way rather than using my old method with just a starting clamp?
