dan if you go fully braced up both braces go usually slack and squared both are going tight. but now you tension one side so won`t you end up with a tight brace on the tensioned side only ? i.e when the tensioner is sitting on the left sie only you`ll brace maximal to teh left but when you brace to teh right you will loose brace angle as the slack of teh right brace which is now teh weather brace will be taken up from the left brace line so you`ll have less yard swing to that side.
