Thread: Ramblings of a Stringing Newbie

One of the first things I did to my machine was to glue the axle into the hub and Loctite the grub screw in place. This will take up any play between the hub and axle. You will still be left with a little bit of tilt, but nowhere near as much as before.
While you're at it, spray a little bit of GT85 on the axle and into the holder.

I'd have put money on it being you to help me out
Thanks (once again), I'll get on it tomorrow.
I've had about 4/5 goes now and things are definitely getting much smoother and speedier. I've ordered sets of ZM62, VS850 and NS30 (along with the ZM65 that's coming in my Revelation) to try out so I can make a decision what I want to get a reel of.

Be sure to wind your crank's gripper limiter screw all the way out for Z62, by the way.

My VS850 arrived today....just done another practice run with the Hiqua stuff and I'm tempted to have a go with the VS850 on my Trinity Pro. Scared though, first time I'll be using anything I actually care about damaging.

My second job was with BG80 on my beloved AT800 Off (back when I was playing 24 lb, that is)
Just go slow - you're not being timed.

I did it and it's looks good!
...but I nicked the string at some point. It survived the stringing but I doubt it will last long. Oh well, just need it to last long enough to decide if I like it then I'll be swapping it to try something else anyway.
Another lesson learnt

I think mine was causedby the opposite problem...not quite tight enough, so it got dragged through tensioning the first main.
