    Any idea what gauge string or type used during the testing ?
    It's right, "as much as +8.0", which is a general term. It does not happen all the time, and varies from machine to machine. I've seen my Sensor and Wise 2086 got as much as +2.0 over, without pre-stretch enabled. These are over shoot readings, and not necessarily true pre-stretch.

    Most of the time Kevlar (Aramid) is used, but on some machines it "throws off" the sensors in the machine. These were all independent tests by an ATP stringer that used or owned the various machines. I beleive the USRSA did a similar test, but I can't seem to find the article.

    It's good to find out all these reading for the machine, especially yours!

    Knowing them will indeed help your stringing ... a lot

    So one possible reason the guy who started this thread probably 'clamp' the string too fast before the pulling is over

    Or his machine probably got a lot more +?

    My Appologies. I know I kinda hi-jacked or de-railed this thread, but I was trying to clarify what Double Pull meant, then led to pre-stretch some how.

    Rounding and slight deformation is pretty normal, it will usually even itself out as the strings settle. I don't think too much of it. It's not a big thing.
