    I am from the US, but I have what is now called xtremesportsmachines,(was once distributeed by SAM), that is now in Australia. The customer service is great. I had an LCD screen go bad, and they were very helpful getting me back in buisnesss, and I did not even buy from them, as I purchased mine before xtreme took over the line.I have the Pro Master machine, and it has been great.Would do it all over again.

    Hey mate I live in Sydney myself and have yet to buy a stringer from around here really. From what I've researched, the stringing machines here are a rip off. Especially the ones that have to be imported but I guess we can see why they're so expensive then.

    I was considering buying the Babolat Star 5 once and I was looking at some American sites and one of them had it brand new for about US$3700. I asked the local Babolat rep Glenn Knox here in Sydney how much I could get the Star 5 for from them here in Australia. I was shocked to find out it would cost me about AUS$6000 to $8000. (My memory is a bit shady but I think it was 8000).

    I bought my first stringing machine second hand from a guy I know who runs a shop here in Sydney. Check out my Pacific Digital 700. Stringing with it is a beauty.

    Ah my bad. Didn't know you were going for a low end machine. In that case check out these. Get rid of the spaces between characters of course. Where do you live? If you live in Sydney, try Jadee.
