Hi i was just wondering about you laserfibre users if the Sensory Tension Jaw system has really helped you? i am still trying to decide between the eco and tt model and the deciding factor comes down to the part of the Sensory Tension Jaw system. thanks for your opinions.

I talked to Tim Sullivan today and he told me that Sensory Tension Jaw system will reduce your string job by 5 minutes. This little mechanism cost $150 more than eco. He also said, that STJ is the ONLY difference between these two models. I naturally ordered the ECO.

i don't think it's the only difference the mounting systems are different where you mount the throat of the racket is different, i hate the laserfibre website because it took me along time to figure out that they display the ms200tt model in their pictures. but i think i will order the eco as well and swap the mounting posts.

Having strung on a couple different machines, I can say the sensor is a nice feature(i currently have the tt model with single action clamps). Do you need it, no. Is it worth $150, well that depends on how many times you string. If it is just for you, then probably not, but if you string for others or are a frequent breaker(ie 4 or more string jobs a month) you would probably want that feature. It is a pretty nice feature to have, but is not necessary to string a racket. I would say the 5 minute reference is not universal. If you haven't used a stringer before or are really new, it can shave alot of time. If you are really experienced, then ya, probably 5 minutes. When I first started stringing it took me over 2 hours to string my racket. Having this feature when I first started out would have definately shaved off some considerable time.

Like I said, it all depends on how experienced you are at stringing and the volume you are stringing.

Yes, I forgot to mention the mounting system. TT 5 pt and ECO 4 pt. I still don't think that justify paying $150 xtra, but that's just me.

thanks for the replies i'm going to take a hit and get the ms200TT, i talked to one of the salesmen at laserfibre, very friendly and patient might i add, and it seems like the ms200TT is the way to go. [/url]

stevo, you'll love it. When I bought my MS200TT late last year, the cost difference over the ECO was a bit narrower, I think. For me, it was beside the point, since the ECOs were really back-ordered at the time and I still had to wait about a month anyway. I've never strung on anything else, so I can't compare, but my MS200TT is a well-made beauty and very easy to use.

The first time I used the stringer, I had a couple double pulls, but as I have learned to pull the string taught as I put it into the sensor this has eliminated the need for a double pull. Hope that helps.
