Discussion in 'Strings' started by downey stringing master, Apr 12, 2008.
title says it all i,ll post some of my wise soon
i know, varuscelli has just ruined my thread.
Nick, how do you like the 3 teeth clamps? is the size okay? Does the string sit/lay in the clamp well?
They are great...very similar to the babolat star/sensor clamps. The string sits in the clamps very well...I havent had any issues with strings slipping or the clamps marking strings. I strung on a Bab Sensor machine for a year and the Eagnas clamps are very similar IMO (not as good quality but do the same job).
Nick would you recommend your machine or has it just had too many problems?
Its a great machine...its had problems yes but they were sorted quick under the warranty.
The clamps are great...mouting system very very secure and the tension head is very quick/accurate.
PS...its my birthday today
well happy b-day, whats in the spray bottle
No new machine from daddy then!!
Thanks...aftershave not sure why the hell it was there lol
Cheers...nope there is nothing wrong with the one I have got!
so that is the eagnas machine rebranded or what
What did you get then? Presents wise
Its a Eagnas Combo 3800 rebranded
Just the usual stuff....
In your sig "Same rackets, string and tension for 6 MONTHS! started 13th Aprial "
What's your choice?
Happy Birthday, I still don't have enough confidence in Eagnas so I am going to get myself an Apex II even thought it is not my Birthday!
PS- My parents are buying it for me. Except I only get 2 rackets and I have to pay for string.
The Apex is a nice machine!
Over here in the UK there is next to no choice so that machine is the best I could get really..
Ouch... Just to let you know, you spelled April wrong right?
Its in my signature:
Fischer Pro No1 98 - no lead or added weight, karakal PU grips black
Pro Supex Maxim Touch 16 @ 62
damn didnt notice...typing too quick
Thanks for telling me!
A little to much coffee today or something?
Little too much alcohol last night I think...
what about kevlar
I have reels of Maxim Touch so am just using that...
Plus my tennis elbow came back a little..
Why are you parting yesterday when today is your birthday...
God you are supposed to party tonight!
Hey Nick, Could I buy some of that Maxim Touch from you? A poster here that I talk to has been raving about it for months and bugging me to try it!
and monday night!
Sure...im going out now but will email you when I get back.
LOL have you fell back in love with MT or just its nice and soft?
How often does it break for you?
Its just nice and soft.
I break it at around 4 hours play.
Some more pictures for the thread. First time putting pictures so forgive me if all goes wrong!
The Finished Product
Sorry for the picture size!
Looks to me like a Alpha Axis Pro that is branded by different company.
its a pro's pro xp plus.
1012007, please dont mock the pro's pro brand again. there is nothing wrong with their machines or strings. True, their heaper offerings are poor, but the same can be said of major string brands! i can highly recommend the xp plus if you are looking for an upgrade to your current machine.
What's it called?
By the way, how old are you now?
I dont mock Pro's pro just am very wary of buying anything from them as many people have had machines from them with an endless list of problems.
The price is appealing but then it probably justifies the lack of quality.
I mean a Wise 2086 + Pro's Pro Challenger 2 base for just over £500. Not bad for UK prices but many have said the base cant handle the CP of the wise
me and ben both have the same machine. they are fine no problem.. i have strunger over 450 rackets on it no probs its fine with the wise.
What do you mean CP?
I have used my XP Plus for nearly a year now, i have had no problems at all. Worth evry penny I spent on it and more. I string a fair few rackets and it has coped extremely well.
Apparently you can take out the clamps etc from the base etc?
Saw one on Watdon for around £500 with tax etc Wise with challenger 2 base.
I searched wise on google and read people having problems with the wise on eagnas, pro's pro machines
CP = Constant Pull
I was saying the pro's pro might not be able to take the CP of the wise
If anyones interested the racket in my picture is a Head Flexpoint Prestige Team string with Pro's Pro Aramid Spin at 62lbs.
cp has nothing to do with it.. say you tension at 55 on a spring machine.. okay it might be at 52-51 lbs.. but cp will do 55.. just like stringing at 58-60 on it.
Yeh, i have seen the Challenger/Wise combo on Watdon. Looks good and at a great price.
I wouldnt worry about the clamps not coping with the CP, as drop weights do have CP. The force of gravity never stops.
What is your MSN?
I think he meant when you have tensioned and clamped a CP will still pull more, and the clamps might not be able to hold it.
I'm off, we can continue the debate some other time
but then after few jobs you'l re tighten clamps..
simple people probs didnt know to take out the bungs and ****tee.
Ben just added you on msn
