Just wondering if you guys had any tips for me.
Clean with Alcohol. Lube with CLP Break Free or Teflon (PTFE) oil.
Have you enjoyed it ? Doesn't look like there is much to maintain. I bought a NEOS 1000 that should arrive tomorrow and I'm excited to try it out. I have been wanting to get away from a dropweight and so far I really haven't worried about using glide bar clamps. The last few tournaments I've been to there has been a NEOS in the shop and they still keep cranking out rackets.
clean, lube, adjust as needed.
don't over-think it.
A little grease on the pivot points, inside the clamps is a good idea. Prince recommeds this, and will help extend the life of the clamps by reducing wear. Just a little, applied with a toothpick.
Where are these pivot points you are referring to?
Does anyone clean the tension track? how? It is very hard to clean to get the best result.
I have used alcohol but very hard to see result. This is compare to the glide bar track. After I clean the glide bar track and finish it with few drops of 3 in 1 oil, glide bar glide through with no resistance at all. I heard the tension head (with no string) should able to move without much resistance as well, is that true?
how much do you all string? the star 5 is just a beast. almost zero maintenace
^^ I've had I eyes on a star 5 for a while now, just have not been able to buy one. I definitely string enough for one.
btw, I was at a club about 2 hours away from where I live, saw a star 4, amazing
i want a star 4 too! how much do you string?
The Star 5 is supposed to remind you to clean the clamps every 50 rackets or so. I clean my clamps every 20-25 rackets and usually get the message after I've already cleaned them.
the star 5 i am on is unlike any other. its my baby
Doesn't the manual detail what is needed?
who reads the manual??
As an IT guy, the first acronym I learned on the job was RTFM before you ask questions. Kinda stuck with me. I most certainly wouldn't overdo maintenance as you can mess your machine up.
hahah more people should do this
Well, I shouldn't say that I string enough for one, just really want one! But I string depending on the day about 3-6 racquets a day.
thats not bad. 6 a day i would justify. i did 22 today
you definitely deserve it more then I do! I hope you're lucky enough to get one!
i knowi want one
