Scotty have you tried adjusting the size of the string gripper by changing the dial that is on them for different thicknesses of string?

Spent a good few hours with trying everything I could think. I took the gripper to the point of it slipping, then tightened jt so it just gripped enough still the same thing I think the front of the gripper was to rough in general ive sent it back to him to sort out. Its the gripper part yeh.

I have the shuttle express from pros pro. It also put indents in the string and even if I get the racket strung the strings break easy. I sent a video of what was happening and they sent me a new gripper. Still didnt work right after I got it, so I took both parts apart and slowly worked it till it worked, somewhat. There is a small part that puts small indents in the string but I put electrical tape on the small part that does that and now works fine. Not a complete fix but it works. Planning to get the wise 2086 to replace it so I dont have to worry about it.
