    Hi, i want to buy a stringing machine, but i don't know what to buy, It's very confusing. Well, i don't want to pay anything over 350. I know thats not that much, but Im sure there is something good worth that price.
    SO can you give me suggestions on what i should buy?
    thanks for any help!

    I don't have any experience with these machines so I couldn't tell you.They both look good off specs alone, but you have to be careful with Eagnas, people have had some problems with this company.

    You'd have to search for those machines on these boards. The most trusted Eagnas machines that I know of are the Flex 940 and the Eag 300.

    Whats the difference between a dropweight and a automatic drop weight. All i know about a dropweight is dat u have to crank it back untill a bar is balanced horizontal, so therefore have to pull it back up. so is automatic like that? or is just a 1 time pull down? or soemthing??/

    thanks for any help!!!!!

    You're right about dropweights. Automatic dropweights only need the string fed through once. No matter what angle the dropweight is at, the tension pulled is still accurate.

    Depending on which u pick, out of cranks you will not be able to do fan pattern racquets with glide bars. Thats why I got the flex 940 and it has swivel clamps and 6 point mounting. I just love it so far and no problems either...
