hey everyone, I'm looking for a machine, my dad is most likely going to finally let me get one for christmas/my birthday (february), but he doesnt want me to experiement too much with string combo's because i might not focus on the technical aspects of my game (strokes, strategy, and everything else). He knows that it will pay itself back, but is still a bit hesitant. Anyways, he told me to look for some, so thats what im doing... one thing ive read is that fixed clamps are much better than floating ones, and i can understand why, however, im on a tight budget (less than 250, preferably under 200 USD). And i know that fixed clamp machines are upwards of $400ish... however, i want something basic, but functional. Im looking at a 6 pt mounting system, dropweight, with fixed clamps for a low price, a bit hard to find i guess. But i dont want something thats unreliable like a floating clamp or 2 pt mounting system (aka something thats too cheap to be worthwhile, if you get what i mean). i plan on stringing for my friends, kind of like a mini-business thing, but time isnt that much of a factor yet, so i dont need a professional or electronic one, unless its dirt cheap. So the only one ive found so far that meets my needs is the Eagnas Flex 470 (http://www.eagnas.com/flex740.html#h610p). I dont know if there are any negatives of this machine, because i dont know a lot about machines, but i know some stuff (like mentioned above). So what i need is some suggestions of what to look at, the +/- of this machine, and any other tips that you could recommend to me. Thanks a lot! btw, here's a pic of the machine... US$219.00 and apparently comes with "free string and tools worth $75 value"
