Taneepak: Thanks! 4 Fly Clamps vs. 2 Fly Clamps
(Tan)Eepak stated a few posts down that it was essential to use 4 fly clamps when stringing the mains with a stringing machine that had no fixed clamps.
Well, I tried his suggestion on 4 rackets and though I feel it's not essential, it definitely is better and I will use Eepak's suggestion from now on.
I don't believe there is a significant tension loss using two clamps instead of four because you "make it up" when you pull the next string but Eepak's 4 fly clamp method is definitely more better, minimal tension loss.
The analogy I give is why do something at 90%-92% success when you can do it at 95+% success with minimal extra time spent?

some people prefer 99+% success by using fixed clamps:P

Well if you have no fixed clamps, you have no choice but to use flying clamps which 4 flying clamps is sufficient.

the uglier the knots, the tighter they will be
it's a fact of life
Since nobody notice it yet, that ns8000 was done hybrid stringing, and it ain't your regular hybrid either

didnt i said unconventional hybrid stringing (as compare to conventional hybrid)
Watch out for those 'positions' u r advocating
The knots can get 'kinky'

Depend on who you talk to and what brand of fly clamps you use. In general, Yonex and HiQua fly clamp can sting up to 25lb without any problem from many of the posts here. Also depend on which starting method, you can string with a starting pin (or LazzyBuddy made one with left over string tie to a key ring) or starting clamp with 2 fly clamps. I personally feel that if you string higher than 25lb, it is better to use fix clamps.
And nothing wrong with kinky in bed (string bed)...
