    but this is the part that i don't really understand. after i used it last week, the string job that came out from the Pro/Protech "feels" tighter.
    Could be something as simple as you paid more attention to straightening the crosses during tensioning on the "tighter" racket. Like you said, 24 is 24, but a "bent" 24 is looser than a "straight" 24 (no sniggering:P).

    Lock out and drop weight allows easier control when pulling the first cross. The stringers can substantially slow down the rate of pull on the first cross; hence, the need for reducing first cross's tension or just pulling on the second cross is avoided in most cases. For electronic machines, the stringer has to be very careful. Reduction in first cross tension or just pulling the second cross is a must.

    how does that compare with using a starting clamp?

    Possibly the only win for crank over ECP. I hold the locking lever in and pull past the reference tension when pulling the first cross to get the knot seated; then I pull the corect tension.
