We consider here a particular instability, an axis symmetry breaking meniscus instability, that occurs under certain conditions in the transient filament stretching apparatus near the endplates as the plates are separated. Spiegelberg and McKinley  investigated this instability development in Boger fluids (dilute solutions of polymers), and here we use a concentrated solution of a polymer as a model fluid for polymeric melts.
