    I tried to do a search and not a whole lot came up on the Pro's Pro and particularly the P100 model. Found an ad on **** for one for a reasonable price assuming they don't charge n arm and a leg to ship to the US. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of this brand and if it's worth the savings? Typically I am a true believer in the "you get what you pay for" expression, but can't help but to shop around for the best deals. (human nature I guess). Any information would be extremely helpful, even if someone were to confirm that they are made from the same factory as the Eganas.

    thanks

    It's made by Siobasi in China. Though if I were in the market, I'd look at the V888. I've had smaller items shipped and it was reasonable. Though I don't know how much shipping the bigger items may cost.

    Te Pro's Pro and Eagnas are similar machines. After paying $1,350 for the Pro's Pro machine and $350 shipping what are you going to do if there is a problem? You may want to take your chances with an Eagnas.

    EDIT: BTW you can't post your link because E bay (dot com) is a nasty four letter word and TW won't allow it. You can't even spell a word that contains e bay like F O R E B A Y.

    Here is another link you may want to check out. And I would have to agree if you're looking for a constant pull machine in the price range you looking at the Stringway is a good option.

    thanks Irvin for the advice, the price tag is not bad for an electric considering thats the cost of a neos 1500 or gamma 6400 minus the motor. You are right about customer service.

    the string way ml200 looks interesting

    I recently ran across that same machine, it's being sold in the US under TennisTechs. It's still built by Siobasi in China.

    I placed an order on this (pro´s pro p-100) last week and now awaits it to arrive to me in Sweden from Austria. For the money it looks really interesting. I previously owned the V-888 from Pro´s Pro (was a bit slow pulling function on that one, will see how this is in speed)

    Will post pics and review when it arrives

    Which one is better for a small club with very limited stringing jobs - this one

    or the electronic version

    Difference is $200

    Thanks for any advice

    I say electronic or crank... I have dropweight myself and there is issue that I have to regrip string in jaws of puller often because either string doesnt stretch enough for dropweight to fall down itself or string is stretchy and it drops too low and puller gets stuck in string coming from racquet...

    @ ^2.

    I personally own that electronic machine, the TX-700!
    Has so far worked well and accurately for me. I cant really say anything about long term issues(?) since I've only had it for a short while

    I too own the drop weight model (its called the Challenger in the UK) I've learnt to string on it and found it easy to use. Its handled poly and multi so far with out issue (gonna try gut on it soon). It's worth noting two things though, the linear gripper does mark strings from time to time & the base of the clamps need adjustment on a regular basis to prevent movement. Otherwise, its a solid investment and has saved me quite a bit of money. Just for reference, I string 3-6 times a month.

    Have you tried it to string badminton and squash rackets?
