    Hi I am considering in doing my own stringing now and would like some advice on which machine to choose. Any ideas? I haven't really settled on a budget but would like something easy to use, good, with warranty, and something in the middle, not too expensive as I am only starting.
    Electronic stringers are out of my list as they are too expensive, and I would like to know if manual stringers are easier to use than drop weights.

    Decide on how much you're willing to spend (I suggest setting aside the largest amount you can afford) and then go and check the reviews of the different machines here:

    Do a search on this forum too.

    Yes.

    You might find my "journey" interesting. :) The title is "$450 to spend...." but that was a typo, I was really trying to hit a $400 budget.

    I ended up w/a dropweight. Very easy to use, no calibration reuquired. If had upped my budget a bit I likely would have gotten a crank, but given the volume of racquets I'm doing it wasn't worth it to me.
