    2. Less than $700

    You should probably reduce your price ranges to

    1. Less than $300
    2. Less than $700
    3. Less than $1,200
    4. Money is no object

    "Best" is a rather subjective evaluation. I have a Gamma ST II and am very happy with it. It is a solidly built machine and with the latest models having the all metal clamps I think this machine is very good value. There are other very good machines in the same price range, e.g. Alpha Revo and some machines that you should probably stay away from. I suggest you decide you much want to spend and what features you want and do some research.

    Well, for the 700 dollar range no stringing machine discussion would be complete without the mention of the Laserfibre MS200tt :D Simply one of the best machines out there. Stay away from Eagnas machines

    Way too subjective. I've strung on 5 different stringing machines frome the Klipper to my Aria. Each has its pros and cons. It really depends on what you are trying to do. If it's a few racquets a month, the most basic of stringers will serve you well.

    However, if you're doing 100 or more a month, then you have to look at speed, accuracy, consistency, resiliency (how well it holds up) and efficiency as major factors. In this case, it's difficult to find something that is in the lower end of the spectrum that will give you all of the requirements.

    Top of the line? The Sensor gets thrown around a lot as does the Star 3 and 4. Sensor Expert? Some of the number Babolats (3200?), the Technifibre family? I haven't had the opportunity to use any of these machines and I'm sure they each will have their respective champions. I'd like to hear from those that have to see what is the best.

    I will be stringing three racquets a week for other people and then probably one or two per week for myself.

    So get the Laserfibre MS200tt. You cannot go wrong with that. Unbelievable customer service and the machine is a legend.
