    It's just a fact of life with this multi-purpose stringing machine. I haven't seen one out there that is specifically for badminton. As with everything else in life, when there is a will there is a way. I have a few solutions to this throat support issue already.

A pair of these clamps costs CAD 6.58 before taxes and look like a scaled down version of the clamps from the jumper cable. The spring action is extremely strong. I could barely open the clamp with two hands. Once the jaw is open wide, placing right next to clamp base totally stop the clamp base from moving.
    r u saying a clamp on a clamp?

    Oh sorry for the misunderstanding . . . The clamps I got from HOME DEPOT secures the glide bar.

    Just a question for all those who own this machine. How does the machine maintain the correct tension regardless of what position the drop weight is at?

    in terms of consistency, it's darn consistent, i use a 25 pound fisherman scale to test the tensions because the range is bigger therefore making it more accurate. When i test it is very consistent. I've have times where it pulled less but that was my fault for placing the scale on a angle. But over all, yes their technology is no gimmick. it works. =)

    Not only is the resulting tension accurate but also long lasting. The string bed feels very tight after three weeks of usage.

    jeezbus that's pretty high tension!! i haven't gone past 26 pounds.. currently:

    24 lbs Main (bg85)
    26 lbs Cross (bg66)
    cab21 SP 2U G4

    it's fun to experiment with string once you have a machine =)

    When you string beyond 26 lbs, you really need to slow things down. One should very slowly let the weight drop. If you just let the weight drop in an instant, the string might snap or the frame might crack/pop.

    hehe thanks for the tip, i don't think i will string past that point my arm can't take it and isn't strong enough to produce any power past that point. I know my limits but 31 pounds... wowzers... no wonder why you invested in a stringing machine, how long does your string last you before it pops??

    If you were to use BG66 instead of BG65 at these tensions the playability would be much, much better. Since you are stringing your own racquets, costs should not be a problem.

    It really depends. If I do lots of slice, the strings will fray much faster than simple hits. I would say BG-65 will last three months assuming no mishits. By then the tension drops down to 25 lbs.

    Well, I prefer BG-65 since it is longer lasting.

    that is crazy i went through 3 rackets with that tension and string in 30 mins at one point... might be because of the weather tho.

    It probably is the weather... winter is harsh in Edmonton. Depending on how well you care for your racquets, strings might not last long especially with tension over 24lbs.

    Default Stringing from the Middle

    Okie, I took several people's advice to string from the middle. The subject is a beaten up Ti-10 SP 2U G5 in need of a serious torture test. Stringing the main was very straight forward, but stringing the cross from the middle required three additional flying clamps.

    Main Tension: Usual 28 lbs
    Cross Tension: Usual 31 lbs

    I alternated from the middle without issues until I reached the last two strings at the throat. There wasn't enough space to fit a flying clamp to hold the tension in the last string. The overhead clamp also blocked the tie grommet and made tying a knot very difficult. Any solutions, Registered?

    Note: The result was a much more even strung racquet without the visible signs of bulging of the sides.
