Are you stringing bottom up?

1) I use 4 x Hi Qua Blue Fly Clamps for the mains (two on each side staggered)
2) I use 2 x Yonex Black Fly Clamps for the crosses staggered
3) I have upgraded to Gamma cam locks with Hi-Qua heavy duty badminton clamps with modded bearings which are very strong and stable. I only use these to start stringing (no starting clamp needed) and clamp the extreme mains.

Sir Dink, I have to ask this:
How reliable is that meter?
The Ashaway ZM70 at 33 pounds on my Ultra feels a lot less tight than any of the 30-pound Yonex BG-66 stringbeds on my other racquets. In fact, it's less tight than the two-week old stringbed on one of my Apacs racquets (which, I believe, is now only at around 27 pounds at best).
So, what's it that has gone wrong?
Could it be that a week's transit has killed the tension?
If so, could the tension drop by as much as 6 to 7 pounds?
After this week, I'm planning to restring it over here.
The trouble is finding someone who will do 33+ for me

Sir, I'm a bit disappointed in you. You cannot compare BG66 to ZM70, it's like comparing BG66 to BG65. Of course BG66 is going to play much tighter, it's a much thinner string. When I string BG66 at 31lbs., I have to string BG65 at about 35lbs. to get a similar feel. I thought you knew this.
And ZM70 is a bit thicker than BG65 so it will make it even more so.

I imagined it as similar to the BG-66... I should have checked!
By the way, I can't find anything on its thickness at Ashaway USA
Anyway, the saving grace is the enormous kick the racquet generates!

It's hard to compare directly to Yonex because Yonex numbers are after tensioning (which seems much less accurate because the higher the tension, the more the string should stretch).
Do you really play with BG66 at 30lbs? How long does that last you?

I finally got to test out the Trinity for a couple of games last night and this is a hard hitter ! I never thought there's another racquet that is as stiff as the TC700 but here it is ! However, the Trinity is easier to use and swing faster compare to the TC700.
My Trinity is strung with Zymax 67 @ 26lbs and this is an excellent string ! I am a fan of BG66 and NBG98 and only use them almost exclusively on all my racquets but I will definitely use the ZM67 when it is available here in Singapore.

Indeed, the Trinity is a hard hitting racket and very solid. The only issue is the rather low warranted stringing tension of 28 lbs max. The Great Panda will have to ask for a warranted 35 lbs woven frame (very hard material at the bottom please).
Okay, did we get GrandMaster TwoBeer's appetite going?
