    I'm trying to figure out if Toalson stringing machines and Gamma stringing machines are essentially the same. Except for differences in a couple of machines, they seem nearly identical to me, right down to the naming conventions (except the Toalsons are labeled as Toalson).

    Here's a New Zealand link:

    Can anyone offer me any insights into this?

    Thanks!

    OK, well...

    Whatever the case, I've added Toalson as a separate entity in the stringing machine manufacturers pages.

    http://www.photostringer.com/toalson.htm

    The machines seem to be uniquely identified as Toalson, and as such, even if possibly sharing a common maker with Gamma (whomever that maker might be), my guess is that Toalson deserves as much a place of recognition as does Gamma in a relative sense. Maybe in the grand scheme of things, buyers of Gamma machines don't know who Toalson is and buyers of Toalson don't know who Gamma is.

    Well...that's one way to rationalize it.

    (Still looking for enlightenment, if anyone knows more about any Gamma/Toalson tie-in.)

    Toalson is the OEM for most of Gamma's string and I guess they (Toalson) as many of the string manufacturers (Babolat, Gosen, Tecnifibre, etc) also have a line of stringing machines. Not sure which factories actually make their own machines, if any, but looks like Gamma also carries the stringing machines from their main string supplier too.
