    I almost feel like brining out the fishing scale to cheat on my Wise! I'll just take a stab in the dark to be fair, but I'm very interested in the results! It probably also makes a difference if you do top down method as well since the distance travelled is also shorter! Let's see how close my estimated string theory gets!

    1) 29.8lbs
    2) 23.4lbs

    We are talking about outside string tension not inside frame. The angle and
    friction will greatly reduce tension delievery.

    Do it for fun! We all know that there's tension loss with #2, it's just a matter of how much! I'm starting to think that it's significantly more that my guess :(
