    This topic has been hijacked and derailed enough. This seems to happen when Technatic (Stringway Rep) always joins the discussion.

    Honestly, most people don't care as long as they have a machine that can string thier rackets.

    Common Lakers4life, if that would be true nobody would ask for an advise about a machine.

    I think it is interesting to discuss details, so that readers understand what happens, but you obviously don't.

    Create another thread, DON'T HI-JACK threads. You are like a broken record, same subject over and over. Most of us all aready know what you are going to say. It's an interesting discussion, but it does not directly apply to what the OP wants. You are not giving any advise other than mechanical CP is better than electonic CP, BFD! I could care less if you are Jay-Cee in disguise.

    DONE

    Checking with a peak force gauge can tell you whether a machine overshoots.

    It can also tell you how close a Stringway dropweight is to the tension the stringer thinks he's getting by adjusting the weight's position on the bar using the ruler which runs parallel to the bar but some distance to the bar. :rolleyes:

    Well yes I guess you could but if the tensioner pull at 60 with or without overshoot will that tension be the tension in the frame? No because of friction at the frame some tension will be lost.

    lol, when everyone feels we got enough from this thread, I want to throw in something.

    After reading this, http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=453722, I just feel a KM remains a viable choice for home stringer.

    The primary advantage of having a more advance model like gamma 6004/prince neos 1000/wise 2086 is that they give you a more professional appearance as a business stringer. When you examine the result, it will largely depend on the stringer's skill, and discipline. A KM offers everything to deliver a good job if skill and discipline are there.

    At one point in the article it says, "Frank is playing at 19.8kg, while Milos is playing 19.5kg mains and 20.5kg crosses. Both players ask for two-piece stringing." The stringer stays up from 11PM to 7AM stringing 16 rackets and you want him to go through 32 tension changes to withing 0.1 kg on a drop weight knowing at least one of them is going to check his work?

    It will never happen. I agree the drop weight stringers are great low cost home stringers but the best of the best wont consider them.

    Irvin, the OP's budget can afford a gamma 6004, what would be your recommendation, given he was a home stringer?

    That will depend on how many rackets he is going to string. If I did not have a machine and I wanted an affordable stringer for low use it would surely be a drop weight.

    If I were going to be stringing 3 or 4 rackets a day very often it sure would not be on an X2 or KM. to me that would be miserable. If I want a good travel stringer to string several rackets a weekend every once in a while then an X2 or KM would fit the bill nicely though.

    There is a place and market for all kinds of stringers.

    FWIW... TW strings all their racquets on Neos 1000s (not even the 1500).

    For all the MRTs on the TW staff, I've had people bring me TW demos for restringing, and the TW stringing didn't look so good. Then again, they have a little MRT factory churning out MRTs there, and the MRT qualification only means so much.

    When it comes to mass production, it is hard to retain discipline. The result would be compromised.
