Hi all. I'm a fairly new stringer, only done maybe 10 racquets at most using a very old Eagnas machine that had been sitting in my garage for so many years. Anyways, long story short, after stringing multiple of my own raquects, I've gotten the technique down but the tension was never on par with what I put it at. I figure this machine is way too old, and I'd rather have a dropweight with a clutch rather than having to manually hold the string down for the string lock to adjust it. This is the machine that I've been using... but finally got fed up with the tension problem. I figure it's from sitting in the garage for so many years without being properly cleaned and so on. http://www.eagnas.com/jpg1/h10a2.jpg Anyways, I'm looking to buy a new machine and have no idea where to start. My budget is right around $400 since I know I will be stringing for many years to come and it will save me money in the long run. I've heard of Gamma X-2 as a good $200 machine, but someone had also recommended me Alpha as well( which are pretty pricy). Any tips would help! Thanks!
