To say stringing on klippermate is annoying...would be like saying that Hitler wasn't a very nice person. :-? Man was I spoiled! I used to own an axis pro/WISE tension head combo. And after a long time of not playing tennis I finally decided to sell it last summer. Boy do I regret it! Now that I came back to tennis I bought a used klippermate, since that's all I could afford. I hate the cam system. I imagine it would be slightly better if I had the ratchet system of the x-2. But what I hate the most is the floating clamps! I can't imagine them being as accurate as fixed clamps. Especially in the hands of an inexperienced stringer like myself. But oh well, you gotta pay for your mistakes :cry: At least it only cost me $70. I do have to say though...after you're finished stringing the racquet it's curiously satisfying. Sort of like starting a fire with flint stones instead of a lighter. It gives you that "I AM ALL THAT IS MAN!" feeling. You know?? BTW, A huge thank you to 'Irvin' for his video on the 50/50 pattern and stringing an 03 racquet in general. And ofcourse thanks to everyone on this board for all the invaluable info! Don't know how I would manage without TW!
