Default Slingerland Super Sound King strainer question

Hi there,

the newest item int my collection of parallel action snare drums is a Slingerland Super Sound King that has awesome possibilities to adjust the tension and position of the snare wires. I just replaced the heads and tuned it up.
I noticed that when turning the handle to lift the snare wires against the head the strainer moves first and the butt side a bit later when the lever is nearly in a middle position. I wonder if this is normal or not. I always thought that the sense of parallel action snare drums ist lifting both ends at the same time.
Perhaps anyone here got one and can tell me or try it out.
Thanks a lot
