Drop-weight help! Racquet handle gets in way of tension arm
Hi, I'm sort of a newbie at stringing, maybe have done 10 string jobs with my silent partner drop-weight.
The problem I'm having is that when I string the mains at the throat, depending on the angle, when I tension it pulls the racquet handle parallel to the drop-weight arm. Once I try to drop that arm to apply tension, the racquet handle gets in the way of the weight (the metal lump) thereby preventing the arm from falling naturally to the 90 degree position. What I have to do in those cases is pull the handle to one side at the same time the arm is tensioning, which to me seems really bad.
It's sort of hard to explain so if my description is confusing, I'll try to take some pictures.
