I needed to add an extra spring, most people seem to mange with three though.

you could just put them in an arrow shape, it doesn't effect it much.. but it ads a bit more.. pull.

eg.. normal: |||

When Rich set up my 7dbk for 10's he only used 2 springs in a "v" shape.

I did, it didn't work. Don't ask me why, because I'm assured by everbody that on an Edge Pro there is no reason as to why it shouldn't work, but it didn't for me. Ah well.
