    to quote myself.

    No in-game effect. but tension remains good.
    and then to quote taneepak
    "Sorry about mixing up the names. The earlier picture by Fishmilk is not the correct procedure I advocated. The later one by Jerby is the right one."

    so..yes...clamp 1 holds freshly tensioned plus #2. second clamp goes #2 an #3. so you're right..

    Yes, option B, similar to what Jerby has posted, is what I have always suggested.

    Option A only gives a bit help as "wider / more teeth". Option B definitely contribute more benefit in the progress.

    Gorget option A because it is useless, even if you use two more flying clamps.

    And why is Option A useless? I still think it's better than one clamp.

    well, that might be true. But B would be 'even better'

    the way I see it is like this


    in A (and B..) the first clamp is subjected to the biggest force. the string 'wants' to lose tension and therefore the clamp is getting pulled sideways, and even completely a bit backwards. in A the second clamp doesn't stop this.

    Now in B, the first clamp is subjected to the 'inward' force of the string wich is trying to shorten itself. but the second clamp (clamp the 2th and 3th main) is suporting it by resting against it, and stopping the 'pulling back' force. the second clamp is a support.

    Right, but in order to get that offset, the two clamps have to be side by side, and snug. You can't always get that positioning because sometimes the cross string is in the way and you have to clamp at a different location. This gets timing consuming...I might as well use my fixed clamps...

    ...with this said, every "professional" stringer I've talked to, they don't even bother with all this, they all use two floating clamps for the mains and one for the crosses. Why? Their goal is different, they string for money and speed is of the essence. My goal is somewhere in the middle.

    This is a free world and everyone is free to use any method of clamping that achieves their goal. Professional stringers' goal is speed because speed means money. One of my friends strings his own racquets by hand, from string left-overs from me, whenever he is out of a job but reverts back to machine stringing when he gets re-employed-very sensible goals.

    Of course, that was the purpose of my post.

    Going back to Option B clamping, I have been experiencing with it a bit more and feel you can use it with minimum time/speed loss, you just have to know when and where to clamp so there's no gap between the two clamps.

    well, on the maisn it's not such a big deal...because when you free-strign the crosses just move away for you to place the clamps. on the crosses you mgith not always get the chance. Meh, **** happens...

    You will see a different picture if you look beyond just two strings.
