Looking for advice
When I started stringing years ago, I used a simple drop weight machine to do my own frames. One thing led to another and I was doing all my friends frames and found myself deep into all things stringing. Long story short, I ended up with an Alpha Axis Pro (with upgrades) AND a Wise tension head.....

After some health problems, I had to back off all things tennis and find myself with this machine. I honestly have no intention of stringing for others anymore. Do I keep it? Do I attempt to sell it? Should I simplify and find an old drop weight to use instead if I can ever get back into the sport? I have some mixed emotions because it reminds me of better times, but it is also a waste to see this machine sit unused.

Anyway, just wanted to get that out. Any comments are welcomed. It has been a while since I was truly active on this board.

Hey Guy,

Sorry to hear about your health problems, I hope that you are in a speedy recovery.
About your machine, if you can easily part ways with it, try and sell it and get a cheap DW for your own sticks if you start playing again.
Like you said, there is no point in holding on to something if it's just sitting around unused.

Best of luck with everything.

Keep the Alpha and sell the Wise. if you don't start back up stringing sell the Alpha too. I think you will get more for your investments if you sell the two separately assuming the Alpha tensioner is still working.

I agree with Irvin. No need in getting rid of the Alpha yet.
