    Michal, they are looking better all the time.
    A set of Michal's supports might be the best zloty's you've ever spent!
    Good work and Happy 2013! :)

    Just recently got some chudek side supports and I was wondering how much you tighten them when mounting the racket with them since I've never had supports with that kind of plastic tubing. I dont really know the perfect tightening with them yet as I did with my old supports.

    This is very frequent question. My answer is simple.
    How much tighten them? Quite strongly, but without frame distortion.

    is there a reason why you have a loadspreader at 6 oclock but not 12 oclock?
    if i only had one loadspreader, id put it at 12 oclock instead

    I think an improvement would be to do away with the rubber/ shrink wrap tips on the C-supports. You really want to have something more rigid so the frame does not move at all under high loads. I know it's probably a very move as the rubber squashes, but any deformation in the frame shape is locked in when you finish stringing.

    Still working on improving. Thanks for PM suggestions.
    Some poor picture.

    And PVC, white version this time. PoliVinyl Chloride is a very good material for this purpose. Flexible, durable and good looking. PVC are my favourite. I'm using this all the time.

    Remove the transparent rubber tube, it's not needed (from my experience anyways).

    How did you get them off, out of interest? Did you have to cut them?

    What bothers you the PVC transparent tubes? I'm just curious. I'm using them. In time a colour heat shring may be damage. Opposite to PVC- almost indestructible.

    How to remove? The easiest way- to cut. Difficult to remove, very tight measure.

    Yeah I was interesting in trying it out with them off, see if I prefer it, but I don't really want to cut them off and be left with no choice.

    I think I'll just keep them on unless I find I have a problem with them :)

    I just removed mine without cutting them.

    So far, it's been very good without them. You can notice slight damage on the rubber, but the rubber is still there and protecting the racket from the metal.

    Michal, I have a premium stringer 3600, using 4 prong penta clamps and a 2086 tensioning head.
    the side supports provided with the machine are in my opinion poor, I often need to slacken them to get through blocked holes as the supports are in the way.
    do you have side supports which would fit the premium stringer 3600? image.jpg
