This annoys me no end.
I have a total of 18 Flow frames. All authentic Flow stuff, not copies, not Chinese, and expensive as everyone knows.
Why, all of them without exception, came straight from the factory with loose wires that had to be tensioned to some degree or another. Every. Single. One.
Why - is there a good reason for this? I already had honey leaking from a few frames because I was not aware of this tensioning thing. Is this just sloppy quality control?
It is like buying a Rolls Royce, then you have to inflate the tires yourself. It is so annoying, especially if you realise you have to tension the wires after the bees started filling.
