    I was wondering if anyone knows of a video with someone stringing on an Alpha Pioneer DC Plus. I'm mostly curious to see the linear gripper in action, so I would like to see any similar machine in action as well. All the videos I've searched through are using machines with the rotational gripper.

    I am planning on buying my first stringing machine in the next couple of months. After a lot of research, I think the Alpha Pioneer DC Plus is at the top of my list, but I would like to see it being used before I make a final decision.

    Thanks for any help!

    You may wanted to check some of the videos in the sticky thread most of them (if not all) use a linear gripper.

    Thanks for the help. When I first started looking into getting a stringing machine, I did not know what I was getting myself into. There is so much consider. It amazes me how many variations there are on essentially the same thing.

    Just like tennis rackets. You have your 16 main rackets and your 18 mains rackets. Your 16 mains rackets skip 7&9 H&T, 8 H&T, 7H-8T-9H, or 7T-8H-9T. Your 18 main rackets skip 8&10 H&T, 9 H&T, 8H-9T-10H, or 8T-9H-10T. Everything thing else is less than 1% as long as all you're talking about is stringing. Grip size, balance, swing weight, and stiffness don't have too much to do with how the racket is strung.

    And these guys here at Tennis Warehouse devote a whole forum to Stringing Techniques / Stringing Machines and if it weren't for so many DISPOSIBLE rackets they would not even be in business. How can there be so much to talk about? LMAO

    Haha what a coincidence. I just ordered the Alpha Pioneer DC Plus yesterday when it came back in stock on their website. I think YUlitle made the instructional DVD that's supposed to come with it. I couldn't find the video online or any DC Plus videos for that matter, but you could always try asking YUlitle directly. If that's not possible and you're still interested in a video of the machine in action, let me know and I can record a demo once I get the machine. But be warned it'd be video of a newbie string job :twisted:
