    Depends on what your definition of better is. The Gamma might be better because of the price. Also it is a table top machine, it that's what you like. I like the Aria better because it is on a stand. It also has a unique gripper, where it doesn't kink as much as a traditional rotational gripper.

    Pete, I responded to you in a different post too. You can purchase a stand for the Gamma machine if you need one.

    As much as I like Gamma machines, between those two I think I would pick the Aria.

    The Aria has a microprocessor controlled tension head. I don't think the Gamma tension head is microprocessor controlled, as it is not mentioned on their site.

    I think the Aria is the best machine for less than 2K going. I loved the clamps, and the rotational gripper was the best and easy to use. I strung 4 rackets on a friend’s machine, and it worked very smooth and the pull is consistent.

    Plus you can make the Aria a table top if necessary. Cost about $500 more than my current setup, but have considered it.
