Hey

1. What is the Pros and Cons of Drop weights, Cranks, Electronic, and any other types of machines?

2. What machine is the cheapest but also good for a first time stringer.

3. What else would I need to string a racquet other then the stringer?

4. How the hell do I sting a racquet?!? :p

Thx for replying

1. Drop weights are cheap, but annoying and sometimes difficult to use,
Cranks are easier but more expensive
Electronic stringers cost over $1000 for a good one(don't use cheap ones.)

2. You can get a dropweight, but I personally hate them (I'm trying to get a crank) but I would suggest a crank, specificly the alpha Revo 4000. It costs about $500. A dropweight can cost under $200, but they are time consuming.

3 all you need to string is a stringer, tools(included with stringer), and string.

I've also consolidated a bunch of instructional links on the Links page on the photostringer.com site.

http://www.photostringer.com/links.htm

Scroll down to the section titled Stringing Instructions, Facts, and FAQs and you'll see quite a few (including some already mentioned here). You might find this helpful as well. ;)
