    How much is the total cost?? I have had my machine a few weeks now and love it. The tension on the 2 center mains if so much better than with flying clamps. However when i do tension the mains at the throat, the string has to touch the racket when being tensioned which loses some tension, thats the onyl downside really of the MS200
    They are at that US stringing thing atm but they will be back around the 20th of this month i think

    PS take a look at my sig:)

    I spoke to RAB last week, so thought I'd answer the question in case anyone is still interested.

    Size of the machine is approx 32" by 16" (I didn't think to ask about height as it wasn't that important to me). It weights about 32kg.

    I only realised when I'd got off the phone that I didn't clarify price properly. However, I believe he said that the the machine is the price on the website, but once you are a machine owner then you can buy anything else off them at trade price. I was asking from the perspective of Joe Public: if you run a stringing business or are a coach then this may differ.

    I'm quite likely to order one this week, so I can clarify prices if I do.

    The website says £440 Inc VAT when I look at it, so that's what I was expecting anyway. :)

    Thanks for the tip about the price with a stand. I've measured my table and it's not 32" long, so I'd need the free-standing one if I go for it.

    I ordered yesterday, with delivery due on Friday.

    They wouldn't give me anything off the machine (£528.75 inc), but I got the cover for free and a starting clamp for half price.

    Wow that is well expensive. I can get it for £440 incl vat, as i am a member.

    Is that for the table top?

    No, that's the standing version. The table top won't fit on my table :)
