Hello people,

I am unsure how to mount the racquet on my epsilon machine which with research have found to be really equivalent to an Win II pro Eagnas 700le and with two extra mounting points really an Ektelon H.

Anyhow I have many retainers but am unsure of the exact procedure of mounting the racquet correctly and safely. Are the retainers meant to be on both above and below the grommets or just below? Are they meant to be touching the frame securely so they dont move once mounted.

here are first images of my epsilon, then what i believe are the same underlying machines with a few tweaks.

Same machine you think?

Anyhow please tell me how to mount the racquet correctly with the retainers in the photos, I have many of them.

It's really hard to tell without being there to try them on the machine, but here's how I would go about finding out: First, you want to make sure a racket sits on something plastic or rubber (no metal) and that only plastic or rubber makes contact with the inside of the frame too. Then, see what combination makes the racket lay in a horizontal plane (no slope up or down to either side). The 2 large clamps look as if they go at 6 and 12. Can't tell from pictures if they go on top or bottom. The smaller ones look like they go on the bottom at 6 and 12. From the picture, I can't tell if they sit on the mounting arm directly or onto another plastic piece. Good luck.
