If I'm understanding correctly, I think you are asking if you wind the takeup extremely tightly, so that it is extremely highly tensioned, why is it scratching? You are not supposed to wind with so much tension- in theory it can cause cinch marks or other scratching from rubbing against itself, but I also have not ever seen scratching that could be linked to overly tensioning the takeup. What stock are you shooting with? I have had worse scratching issues with certain stocks than with others. Are you shooting in the cold? Certain circumstances can cause technical issues to exist in areas where there wouldn't normally be.

ohhh thanks, sorry my english is so bad, :unsure: well i was shooting with 5207 250D kodak Vision 3, it was a sunny day. Well i got nervous 'cause i read on an Arri user manual that if you over tighten the mag you will get scratched, it was an Arricam St mag.

Well thanks for your help and time my friend.
