    Don't worry, my Trixon 8 imploded on its own about 3 weeks ago. Definitely do NOT recommend it at all.

    Plus it played funny after a while. Definitely would warn against it.

    Racket frames are like eggs: easy to break from the inside out, but much tougher the other way. This is why I'm experimenting with dropping the M/X differential to 1 lb for <25 and 2 lb for >25 - seems to better preserve the aspect ratio.

    I second it. IT is easy to know whether the racket is deformed. You set the support at machine just touching but not tight before you string the racket. It should like that after you stringing it, at least at 12 and 6 clock.

    Exactly. When you release a racket from the machine, assuming you haven't over-tightened the shoulders, ask yourself

    Are the 6/12 supports still touching the frame?

    If "no", then you've added too much for the crosses and the frame has stretched N/S.

    If "yes"...

    How much resistance is there when you release the 6/12 supports?

    If the answer is "lots" then you need to add more for the crosses - the frame has contracted lengthways and is pulling on the 6/12s; if the answer is "a tiny bit" then you've hit the bullseye and kept the original frame shape.
