i haven't measured the racket shape change after i moved to the new tensioning scheme though. more experiment needs to be done.

i also forgot to mentioned that with the new tension scheme, i do leave the bottom 4 and top 4 cross at the same tension as main. only the middle 13/14 cross are +10%.

However, I haven't tested much with mains = crosses. But people I string for love the feeling of the string job, be it low or high tension.
I might test this next time I get to string 2 of the same rackets.
The reason that mains + 10% might feel different than it did at the time might be the temperature/time of the year, actual perception or maybe psychological reasons. Just speculating though..

One thing I noticed about the difference between your ASE (or WASE) and your new Gamma is the spacing between the top and bottom side supports pair. The ones on your ASE are much further apart than on the Gamma and each machine does not "support" or touch the same parts on the racquet frame.
I will give it a little more thought on how it might affect the finished string feel and post it later on.

Just wanted to ask has this always been the case? I mean IM NOT TOOO SURE, BUT havnt you owned the GAMMA for some time now? (nearly a year?). When you first strung on the Gamma did it have that dull feeling? or did the DULL feeling only occurred recently?

QUICK RESPONSE KWUN!
Hope we can get to a SOLUTION!

Kwun - Sorry to hijack this thread but as you string Cross = Mains + 10%, if someone asks you personally for 24lbs, in your own stringing method how would you go about achieving this on your machine?
I'm just trying to gather some exp and apply it to my own. Thanks

Sorry was meant to say would you string with one of the following tensions if asked for 24lbs

the potential i can see is how the side support position prevents the side of the frame from bulging out when the mains are tensioned. and thus can potentially affect the shape of the final product.
the effect maybe very very small though. i am not too convinced.

Just my 2 cents,
(1) fixed clamps do hold tension a lot better than flying clamps;
(2) stiffness and holding ability of side supports also make a huge difference;
(3) Gamma 6004's support columns actually tilt inwards at very high tension of > 30 lbs (just look at Kwun's Youtube video about the tilting of the fixed clamp under tension)

(1) flying clamps were used in both cases. the experiment done was down to the point where i didn't used any fixed clamp at all although in my latest flow i used limited fixed clamp for speed sake and found that it make no difference.
(3) i wasn't stringing 30lbs
as for (2), one would think the much more beefier supports from the 6004 would be stronger, but that's counterintuitive as why would then i need more tension on the cross when use the 6004?
