    I'm looking for reviews and/or detailed photos of Eagnas' TX-03...I am shopping for a table-top machine in the $450-500 range. fixed clamps, 6-point mounting system are my requirements...manual or electronic.

    How about a Gamma 602FC? Great name, great support, 6 point mount, fixed clamps, and constant pull. If you decide later on your want a stand you can add one.

    I have the Gamma 602FC and it is awesome. Definitely not a high end machine by any means but it flat out works and takes basically no maintenance at all.

    Similar boat

    I've been stringing for over 2 years using the Gamma X-2, which I've found great, have had no issues with but would like to move up. Would like to stay with drop weight because of the constant pull, but move up to 6-point & fixed clamps but would also like a brake.

    Although I string Prince O's with the 50/50, a brake would be nice, and I'm worried what Prince, HEAD or someone else is going to introduce that will only work on a machine with a brake. The only thing stopping me from purchasing the II602FC or X-6FC is the lack of a brake. I string for myself and a relatively small group of customers. Would love to string more but in small towns not easy to build up clients.

    Question is......does anyone have any idea how important a brake is going to be in the future?

    Brake is not needed for o3 Rackets..Just call up prince and ask for boomerang tools..they should send you a whole set of them.

    Parker, I know you are young and full of enthusiasm but until you have actually used a stringing machine or owned one you probably should refrain from making recommendations about which ones to buy.

    The Eagnas Combo 810 is nice. I have the Combo 910, and I have had no problems, and I believe the only difference is that the 810 is a table-top.
