Anyone remember, use, or familiar with the Tru-Ten stringers? Please give your opinion

The United States Racquet Stringers Association (USRSA) reviewed the Czech
Sports Tru Ten 750 machine in summer of 1995. Our results were that the
machine did not properly support racquets during the stringing process.
The side supports, in particular, flexed during string tensioning and we
actually had a Wilson Sledge Hammer 3.8 fail in the upper shoulders (2
o'clock). Since then, Czech Sports claims to have made several
improvements to their machines but refuse to send another model for
review. I would proceed very cautiously and demand a 30-day trial period,
allowing full refund if not satisfied. Another option in a portable crank
is the Alpha REVO 2000, although it does not have swivel clamps (for
stringing fan pattern racquets). It is solid, though, and accomodates
many different frame shapes and sizes. Also, we've heard Gamma is
introducing a table-top crank machine but haven't seen one yet. If you
have specific machine questions, feel free to call us at 619-481-3545.

And I believe the company that marketed these in the US is out of business. I think I'd steer clear of this one.

I've had my Tru Ten since the model first came out and i've been happy with it. They did upgrade the side supports and sent me the updated new supports, but I've been using the originals without any problems. I guess I got a good one and not a lemon. Good luck.

I've been using my TT 750 for about 5yrs., i got it used and i'm wondering if i can find parts anywhere for it? tension spring?, plastic side supports?
