    I think the Eagnas Hawk 10 is like 90 bux, or at least when I was searching for a cheapie a while ago.

    Abe,

    You can buy a much more expensive machine and it will pay for itself within a few weeks. Just something to think about.

    If you are a high school player and you can string 3 racquets/week at a $10 profit. That is $120 in one month. I know any high school tennis player can find at least 3 customers/week very very easily.

    My opinion is to borrow $600 from your parents, and pay them back in 6 months with interest. Buy an Alpha Revo ($550 w/o tax and shipping). I think it is a great machine to start and keep for the future. No buyers remorse with this machine.

    Oops...appears though the Alpha Pioneer FL is still listed on the Alpha site, it's been discontinued.

    I agree w/LittlElvis...if you are going to be stringing for more than just yourself, getting a better, faster machine makes financial and stringing sense. If this is a "borrow from the parents situation," and you can't get your parents to go up to the $550 price tag of the Revo, the Alpa Pioneer DC Plus at $399 has some very nice features (same fixed clamps, turntable, and mounts of the Revo, and a linear string gripper).

    Then there is also the option to look for a used stringer if you are patient.
