only really on the bay or maybe craiglsist. You might also want to contact Liam Nolan at UKRSA as he sometimes has access to machines from running courses or from other members.

That said http://www.************.co.uk/************-online-tennis-shop/pn/tmt094/name/tyger-stringeco-410 might be up your street. I have the Ultra 800 and it's an excellent machine and I've heard good things about some of their other machines too so this might suit as it's around your budget.

Tell them Ash sent you!

You might try looking for a crank machine with a bad/broken crank that you can pick up really cheap then add a wise 2086 tensioner to it.

Had a pile of coursework to do so couldn't phone up Liam, but I did e-mail him, which he replied that I should check some forums, would any of you know what forum he was talking about. Plus my budget has just been slashed to 200 pounds now my mum has planned a trip to Thailand. How much is the Wise Tension Head?

Wise 2086 is 345 which would have left you 55 ish to find a used crank machine with a worn crank and stay in your 400 budget, but if your budget has dropped it may not be an option.

Wise 2086 is 345

Unless you know a different retailer to me, 345 is the ex-VAT price. Assuming the OP hasn't formed a company and is able to offset the VAT, for us home stringers that raises the price to 405.
