I am new to these tuners, and love them. So far I just pull em to almost tight, then maybe get a half a wrap around. I have had no problem with tuning stability. I was curious if this is just a preference thing, or does the amount of slack to be wrapped matter? I don't want to break strings, or put unessessary wear on the tuners. I used to wrap a bit more on the winged tuners. My strings usually go dead before I break them, unlike my co guitarist who breaks them often, and does a string change at least once a week (also has phase iii, and does one full wrap, but this is not a guitar or tuner specific thing for him. We all play differently).
