    Im sorry to start another thread but there is something i want to ask you, since im planning to buy my first stringer. I have read that on some stringing machines, the racket changes shape. Is this true? Thanks for all the help:).

    There has been endless debate on these boards about which is better - 2-point mounting or 6-point mounting. And the mounting system plays a major role in how much the racquet "deforms" under tension while stringing. Conduct a search, and you'll find plenty of information.

    I decided to buy a 6-point mounting system. Why? Not that it is necessarily a good reason but... Most (if not all) of the high-end machines used at pro tournaments have 6-point mounting systems.

    There are many people who have 2-point mounting systems and are perfectly happy with them. I think it probably just boils down to personal preference.

    Take care.

    I have done about 200-300 string jobs on my four ncode 6.1s, I have a two point mounting system. It worries me when I string but after 300 string jobs, I see no deforms at all. The racket is in the same condition as when I bought them,(besides the occasional scratch from playing).

    Does not matter how many points a stringer has, a racket can be deformed by incorrectly mounting the racket in the stringer. Such as stretching the racket by tightening the mounts too much.
