    i actually saw the tubing you mentioned when i was scouring through homedepot for potential suitable parts for the support just now but at this point i don't need any of the tubing.
    There's really no need, just get the CSSs +Watts tubing and stop racking your brain like Mark and Panda did for close to 2 years.

    I bought some HDPE however when I checked the specifications, it is not as good as nylon. Nylon has a good tensile and flexural strength - better than Acetal, but in this case, I suppose we are also interested in compressive strength, where Acetal is better than Nylon by 1.8:1. I might try it out anyway with HDPE - which is high density polyethylene, I may as well use it. I also tested a nylon sample with the rubber compound and it seems to be ok - nylon doesn't dissolve, so I guess it could be workable.

    I have also coated my nylon supports with the rubber compound where it contacts the racquet frame - it does not slide around any more and seems quite firm. I have experienced some squashing of the racquet after stringing, but this may be due to the different string tensions. I strung a Carbonex 15 at 17/18lb and after releasing the clamps, it shortened by about 3-4mm - seems to play ok though.

    This thread is great for all the fantastic creative ideas that you geniuses have thought up to improve stringing.

    I have recently converted to using Michal Chudek supports on my Silent Partner Crump machine. Since Michal made them specifically for the machine, they are a perfect fit. They are darn solid with no slipping or give.
    The main advantage over what I had before is that there is no issue with interference of the the fixed clamps by the base of the support.

    These supports have been worth every Polish zloty. Thanks Michal.

    hi michal, please e-mail me the price of this version coz may order another round ....

    also, do you consider to enlarge the gap due to additional clear-tube which have significant thickness ?
    I have difficulties to put the thicker frame into the side-support.
