Hi all from newbie.
Looking to upgrade stringing machine from Proís pro Dropweight ratchet machine, to crank tensioned machine.
Iíve done 20-30 tennis and squash rackets on this and recently passed the UKRSA stringer course.

Iím trying to build up to do 5- 10 rackets per week.

So far the advice I have had varies considerable with all these models being suggested :-

Cheapest Crank machines :-

Pro's Pro Pilot Stringing Machine £289

More expensive :-

FST Club 600 Table Top Stringing Machine £415

In between is the machine below

Centring 7000 Tabletop Manual Stringing Machine £349

Are these manufactured by the same company or are there genuine differences in quality ?

Also does anybody rate the Pro's Pro TX700 Electronic Stringing Machine - £389 ?

Any advice gratefully received.

Apologies if this thread already exists elsewhere , but I had a quick look and didnít spot it.

Why bother? I mean your only thinking of doing 10 per week, that's 2 per day, at worst 1 1/2 -2 hours per day stringing on weekdays, less if you count the weekends. Exactly what do you think that you will get out of a crank that your not getting out of the drop weight? The $$ expense does not make any sense.
