I second what Jake said. IIRC, mine needed some tightening up after they stretched out. I'll admit I'm a touch OCD so just twisting it to make up the difference would bug me, so I took the threaded pieces out, twisted the wire in the opposite direction, then screwed it on tight enough so that there was no slack and if I counted right, the wire had no twist in it. Yes, fine I'm OCD, so what
Anyway, the tightening after they stretch should help the slack issue, although it is alright as it is.

I am too. I disconnect mine on one end. I also tighten both lines but not equally. I went as far as tightening one in further so I could eleminate my sub trim

Yeah, I think my OCD is a bit overboard :P

I'm using DA60 and ProFlow cannister. I'm planning on using the canister mount from Planebender but not sure about locating the mount. Should I just put it at the cannister CG? Or, should I use 2 mounts to hold the cann more securely?

I suggest using 2 mounts. One in the front and 1 in the back. You do not want any play in the can or you can end up with a broke. Header!( ask me why I know.......cause I did it!

I did too.(Break a header) Then I bought a KS comfort mount and mounted it in the center of the Prow Flo and have been good so far.
