    I am considering to buy a basic stringing machine and I've heard many good things about the Klippermate. My only concern is that it has only two mounting points. What do you experienced stringers think of machines with two mounting points ? Do you think they might put too much strain on racquets ? Might there be a risk of racquet breakage, racquet microfractures, early failure, racquet going "dead" ? I would not take the risk of damaging my KBlade babies. I would be greatful for some advice in this matter.

    I've strung many different frames on my Klippermate and have experienced no problems with the 2 point mounting system. Just ensure that the 2 posts with the bottom frame plates are pulled tightly against the frame at the 12 and 6 o'clock position and the 2 top frame plates are tightly screwed down and all will be fine. Quick, easy and effective.

    If you mount the racket properly, their should be no problem.

    I like my Klippermate. The two point system seems a little flimsy, but if you mount the racquet properly, there really is no trouble. The Klippermate comes with great resources, including manuals and really nice clamps.
