    The United States Racquet Stringers Association (USRSA) reviewed the Czech
    Sports Tru Ten 750 machine in summer of 1995. Our results were that the
    machine did not properly support racquets during the stringing process.
    The side supports, in particular, flexed during string tensioning and we
    actually had a Wilson Sledge Hammer 3.8 fail in the upper shoulders (2
    o'clock). Since then, Czech Sports claims to have made several
    improvements to their machines but refuse to send another model for
    review. I would proceed very cautiously and demand a 30-day trial period,
    allowing full refund if not satisfied. Another option in a portable crank
    is the Alpha REVO 2000, although it does not have swivel clamps (for
    stringing fan pattern racquets). It is solid, though, and accomodates
    many different frame shapes and sizes. Also, we've heard Gamma is
    introducing a table-top crank machine but haven't seen one yet. If you
    have specific machine questions, feel free to call us at 619-481-3545.

    And I believe the company that marketed these in the US is out of business. I think I'd steer clear of this one.

    Czech Sports Tru Ten Stringer

    I've had my Tru Ten since the model first came out and i've been happy with it. They did upgrade the side supports and sent me the updated new supports, but I've been using the originals without any problems. I guess I got a good one and not a lemon. Good luck.

    I've been using my TT 750 for about 5yrs., i got it used and i'm wondering if i can find parts anywhere for it? tension spring?, plastic side supports?
