    Nice! I love my new Neos (and the two that came before her) but when I go electronic, it's gonna be the Prince 5000. Two point mounting for life.

    I got the prince 5000 and the stringway ms200, love them both! I really like the mounting system of the 5000 though, much more than the 6000.

    Loved the 5000 when i strung on it last summer, had a problem with one of the clamp bases slipping but i'm sure it was just dirty and needed to be tightened. Gotta love the easy two point mounting system though.

    Yes. That's where I learned and I now have my own home biz as well.
    It's nice to have the USRSA tech support. Too bad most of the SA stringers don't make use of it.
    I also fix bikes. :)

    Tightening the clamp base is one of the few troubleshooting tips in the manual(use the supplied 3mm T-wrench)
    No clue about the interface in the back, and ours came with a different pedestal than the one in the manual.
    Better, actually. Has a height adjustment crank.
    My first run with the machine was, alas, with a Head i165 raqcquetball racquet.
    Everything was nice except that the little,magnetic pad on the clamp came loose.
    after I worked it back into place, every thing went fine except that it was an i165. Sigh.
