    Yes YW, those are load spreaders. Where were these photos taken? Was this a sports equipment exhibition (trade show)?

    That is a first generation Shuttle Express stringing machine, first pioneered by Alpha. The second generation has head and throat press down devices.

    I have got to get me some of those - I have been a victim of high noon disease in the past. Anybody know where I can get some?

    I know that they are available on shuttle-house but cost around each piece costs around some USD40 which is simply ridiculous for such a small piece of plastic. I'd also like to know if anywhere is selling them cheaper.

    Good god - 20?!? (and probably a tenner to get them here). Back to the shed, then...

    I do hope Winston from MY puts some of these up soon (hint hint!).

    Frankly, I think load spreaders are misapplied band aid. I never use one and I have had no problem with high noon disease or frame distortion.

    what are the yellow ones used for?

    on loadspreaders, I think they're useful. Sure, if you make sure the posts are not tightened, and adjust the cross-tension enough that the original shape is retained...Then why use a loadspreader?

    But using a loadpsreader works, and comforts people...Because of that loadspreader it's ok for me to tighten the posts (ever so slightly), I like em.

    To call it "missaplied bandaid" is to say you don't need it... But others might, even they might not need it, but it does help, there's no going around that...

    I had load spreaders and am not sure if they worked or not. In any event, I've never had a problem with HND (High Noon Disease) either and got rid of the load spreaders.

    I wonder who came up with the name HND? It's not a disease, it's more like SF (Stringer Failure).

    Well, I've never needed load spreaders (LS) and all the pro stringers I know and talk to locally do not use them.

    I'm not saying LSs do not work (I don't know if they do or do not), I'm just saying if I've never had problems with HND, why bother with the extra hassle?

    So called load spreaders are solely used on suspension system. Suspension system machines should not have any load placed on the n/s posts, as all load and support are taken by the 4 side supports. Using load spreaders only put uncalled for stress on the top part of the frame. Load spreaders also have a hard plastic surface, which are acceptable as side supports but damaging on the top of the frame, because a frame has a natural elasticity from side to side but not from top to throat.

    This makes sense 100%.
