    The partially assembled unit. The tensioning is really fast compared to drop weight.

    Each component is very heavy. One feels like working out . . . shiiiihhh

    The tensioner is real sweet to use but the swivel clamps are totally different from the LF's single action. Will need sometime to get used to them. No drawback or just a tiny little bit of drawback. The fit and finish is excellent.

    Not used to mounting a racquet on a six-point unit. Try not to overtighten but keep the racquet snug.

    In this case, I don't want to see any more pictures because Pete may just tempt me to buy one. In fact, he already has. :p :p :p

    Hi Pete,

    Just wondering, does this beauty self calibrates? That will push Sir Dink over the edge.

    It still requires the occassional manual calibration. I do have the electronic calibrator. Will post a photo later.
