I'm looking to up grade from the X-2. Should I go the cheaper route, get the stand up Flex 940 but risk the EAGNAS or should I stick with Gamma, the name brand, and get the X-ST?

^^ That looks like a biased opinion if I ever seen one. Now consider an unbiased opinion from someone who has owned both an Eagnas and a Gamma. No contest, get the GAMMA.

Been real happy with my X-ST the last 2.5 years. Having Gamma Tech available on the boards for questions is also a big plus.

gamma all the way. this is a recommendation from someone who has owned 3 eagnas machines and currently owns a gamma.

I'm in somewhat the same situation. Have had an X-2 for over 2 years. I'm ready to upgrade but although I like the X-ST (6pt, fixed clamps, brake) and it's high on my list I like the drop-weight and have never used a tension winder.

Have you ever used an X-ST? And if so, or if anyone has used both how does a tension winder compare to constant pull?

get the gamma, you would be insulting yourself by not getting the gamma =)

I would not spend $700 on a table top. If you are stringing volume, go with a stand machine, much easier to use. As to brand, I would recommend the Prince Neos 1500. If you must have a table top check into the new Alpha Revo 5000, better mounting system and 3 point clamps. It is supposed to be out soon.
I keep waiting for my 4 year old Eagnas to break, but after 2,000 rackets it is still going strong, but my next one will be the Prince 1500. Reason mounting is quicker which saves about 5 minutes a racket. Prince stringers are still the standard other manufacturers try to emulate, probably why TW uses Neos machines.
