    SP Swing
    Alpha Pioneer DC Plus
    MP Hercules 680
    Gamma Progression II
    Gamma Progression II FC

    All are 6 pt mount, and I want to know if they're reliable as to not deform my racquets. (by 1/8 in or more. Significant enough to warp the head noticeably)

    For the SW Swing, you really have to use some muscle to screw those vice knob underneath the mounts. If you do, it's fine.

    Hey Mansewerz, I'm selling the ATP Super Stringer II. Just didn't feel relaible with the two pt. I got a Gamma progression II off a TW member though so I'm going to use that now.

    Cool. How is the mounting system or have you not received it yet?

    Also, more input is appreciated.

    Hey, I just worked out a deal tonight so I won't recieve it for a while. I'll let you know how it is when I get it. What machine are you leaning towards to get?

    The SP swing, the alpha pioneer dc plus, and possibly zhou's gamma progression II FC. I want the security of 6 pt mounts and I feel that the 2 point mount systems just may not be enough.

    ^^^^^

    I feel the same way about the two pts, although after some practice I wasn't really getting any deformation. I think I will get more customers if they see that I have a six pt mount to support their racquet.

    yea, and the price is good relative to other machines, but it's also expensive in general.

    they might be expensive as an initial investment, but long term you end up saving a lot of money or making money if you strung for others.

    Also, any other deformation on SP swing, hopefully there's not any.
