Poly really that hard to use with rotational gripper?
 
Is poly really as hard as I think it is to use with a rotational gripper? Because I really want to get an electric machine but Ive been hearing poly is hard to use with a rotational. But some linear grippers are just too expensive and I dont want to get a Wise because I dont want to worry about two different orders. So if rotational grippers arent that hard to use with rotational grippers I will just get that otherwise I will have to do some impressive convincing to get probobly an Silent Partner Aria versus a DG

It should be fine. I've strung all sorts of polys on rotational gripping machines and it's turned out fine.

I replied to your other thread re: Aria/DG. I really don't know about poly since I string exclusively with multi (natty gut soon). However, if poly is really harder to deal with on a rotational gripper, I wonder if the linear/rotational on the Aria will make that much of a difference. Again, I suggest you talk to Steve at SP before pulling the trigger -- he is straight and will give you the definitive answer. You could always go up to the Opus or use a crank -- I think the SP Maestro is the best deal going.

P.S. Zach seems to be a really credible guy based on my experience here. So I would take his advice at face value.

There is another guy on these boards you have probably heard of... Nick B. He knows a great deal about poly strings - plays with them and strings with them. I checked out his site the other day and noticed he uses a machine with a "traditional" rotational gripper (not like the modified rotational gripper on the Aria). I know he strings poly all the time for himself and his customers, and I have never read of any instances where his machine has caused problems.

If you want to reach out to him directly, check out his site - www.nickbondtennis.com.

Take care.

My bad. Thanks!

It's not that hard. It can be a little springy just from being stiff, but for me that's never translated into an issue.
