    I was originally looking at the klippermate but after seeing how people had some trouble with it i thought it might be worth the extra cash to get a Alpha Pioneer DC Plus. I heard it had great customer service, really important, and was built like a tank. This machine seems like the best machine for the money. Has anyone had experience with it. If you have did you ever have any problems with it. Did you every deform a racquet or have any part of the machine break.

    If anyone has issues with un-natural racquet distortion on the Pioneer DC Plus it's because the machine is broken, or you mounted it wrong.

    YULitle how similar are the mounting systems on the Alpha Pioneer DC Plus and the machine you use in your mounting video. And why are the machines used by professionals several times more money than the Alpha Pioneer DC Plus. What is the difference between the Alpha Pioneer DC Plus and any $2000 machines.

    1) The are similar. I prefer the mounting on the Pioneer.
    2) There are a lot of things that make them more expensive: warranty, better parts, electronic, name brand

    Before deciding on a machine I compared brands & features until it hurt. I thought the Pioneer DC+ was the pick of the litter in drop weight machines. The spring assisted clamps are what put it over the top IMHO.

    Agree with YULitle there.
    There is nothing high-tech about mounting.
    The concept cannot be any simpler: put some inflexible material such as metal against the frame, and make sure the metal parts do not move.

    I've been reading alot of good thins about this stringing machine. But can't seem to find an online retailer to purchase it from.

    Could someone post or email me links to places that sell this stringer?
