    Curious. Anyone know the answer? Gotta be a decent machine for the volume of racquets they sell, right?

    I think its the Prince Neos 1000. As seen at there "Fastest Racquet Stringing" video on YouTube where they challenged to see who strings a racquet faster. Look at the stringer there and somebody correct me if I'm wrong. :)

    I've found the Neos 1000 to be the go-to volume machine among larger shops I've visited. Simple, easy to use, as reliable as a wood-burning stove, and relatively inexpensive for the performance you get. There is a reason it's been around probably since I've been alive in one iteration or another.

    One of the largest shops in the country (top 3) I know has a Baiardo, Sensor, Prince 5000/3000, Star 3, and a Gamma electric. They got completely off crank 5+ years ago-

    When I was there, they had 3 of them all in a row they were stringing on. I'm not sure if there were more in the back... First time I had ever seen one up close, they seemed like real workhorses of machines.

    T-W has a competitor near Cincinnati which must not be named on the forums.

    I stopped by their showroom over the Summer, and wouldn't you know it, they were also stringing on a Neos.

    Just relaying my personal observations, I didn't say any more than that. Besides, I use a CP electric and would trade it for nothing :)

    Sounds good to me I will give you nothing for it. By the way you can (oops I meant can't) offer item for sale or trade in this section but I think it's OK to give your stringer away. Diredesire, that is OK isn't it?

    EDIT: You're not going to hit me up for shipping are you?

    Please send stringer to:

    1234 Main St NE

    Well let me think about that. I doubt he would actually do the shipping so I am assuming you mean he can start the process in 4 minutes. No one ever guarantees 4 minute shipping. But I bet he didn't do it. We will never know thought as I gave him a fictitious address.
