I took delivery on my new Samic Sage #45 today and wasted no time in applying the rug and plate. Right now I have it strung and the brace height at 6.5 just to stretch out the flemish twist string. As I understand it the brace height should be from 7.5 to 8.5 so being a middle of the road kind of guy I intend to start with a brace height of 7.75 and see where things go from there. I am guessing that I should let the string stretch for at least 24 hours before even attempting to establish a temporary knocking point. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
