    Default Help with new Flex 740

    Please help! I just recieved my new flex 740, and everything seems to be working fine on the machine.....except.....on the scale bar the numbers for increasing tention seems to be backwards!

    I have an older 2 point drop weight machine that I decided to get rid off. On that old one, to increase the tention on any string job, you would basically reposition the drop weight higher up on the rod. But on this new flex 740, it's totaly the opposite. I tried to string 2 rackets by following the numbers on the rod. I strung 2 rackets, 1 @ 22LBS and 1 @ 26. After when I was comparing the two, the one 1 strung @ 22 seems to be tighter than the one I strung @ 26.

    Can anyone confirm this if you have the Eagnas Flex 740 please?

    Possible reason : the clamp had some slip when clamping the 26lbs racquet.

    Newton wouldn't be proud of you dude, this backward scale is again the laws of physics so find a calibrer to adjust your machine cause it's wrong for sure
