Prince Neos 1000 or Alpha Axis Pro
 
Thanks for everyone's help. I really appreciate your patience. I ordered a Gamma 6004 today from TW.

Alpha Axis Pro. Can't go wrong with picking swivel clamps over glide bar.

Faithfulfather 01-14-2013 03:28 PM

You said Aplha but chose Prince. Mistake?

Andyroo10567 01-14-2013 03:48 PM

Yeah mistake. I'm pn my phone so its weird to click.

Now I am confused he said alpha (swivel clamps) and then he said you can't go wrong picking swivel clamps (alha) over glide bar (NEOS 1000.) then he said he made a mistake.

I don't think you will go wrong with either but I would prefer swivel clamps over glide bar even though have their advantages.

Faithfulfather 01-14-2013 04:40 PM

I like your 6004, but I'm having a hard time committing $1349 bucks for a stringer.

Stick w/ your current set-up and save up for something that'll be a real improvement. SAVE! You are just looking to spend money to spend money. The grass you are looking at isn't greener. If you want greener grass, you are going to have to have more GREEN (cash).

Faithfulfather 01-14-2013 04:55 PM

I have about $1500 to spend. The wife will never let spend more than that. She is already giving me looks.

What about a Gamma 6004?

I agree with dak95, unless you really have an itch to buy a new machine.

I'm for the 6004, but I would go with the 6-point instead of the 2 point. The price went up $50, but it at least includes the cover and a starting clamp.

My choice overall is Alpha. I'm noting that you cant go wrong with either.

I would vote for the 6004 as well, but I prefer the 2pt mount. Both are great though, and the self-centering mount on the 6004 is an absolute joy to use.

I think I am going to get the Gamma 6004 6-point.

Rabbit 01-15-2013 06:26 AM

Despite the poll!

Seriously, you can't go wrong with either machine.

Faithfulfather 01-17-2013 07:59 PM

I bought a Gamma 6004 6-point. Pics will go up when I get it.

Andyroo10567 01-17-2013 08:36 PM

OT : Has anybody really hosted a "fastest racquet stringing" challenge here? Like a thread full of links to there stringing time to beat? If not, I look forward to starting one......

Faithfulfather 01-17-2013 08:41 PM

I would not win, but that sounds fun! My fastest time is 20 min. That was my racket, not a customer's racket. I have never tried to go super fast.

Andyroo10567 01-17-2013 09:30 PM

My fastest was around the lower 30's. I enjoyed TW's fastest racquet video. Fun to watch.

redduck996 03-05-2013 10:49 PM

Lakers4Life, I noticed you recommended the 6pt but have the 2pt. Are you saying if you had to do it again you would go with the 6pt and why? I am torn between the two
thanks

Andyroo10567 03-05-2013 11:16 PM

I'm not L4L but 6pt has more support throughout the frame. 2pt is more prone to deforming the racquet in my thoughts. Theres a whole thread about this somewhere..
Here it is!

If its cheaper to get a 2pt, then just go with that. If you don't mind spending some extra cash, definitely go for a 6pt. Well worth the upgrade.

I own a 2-point, because that's what was available (used) at the time. Though I don't mind having a 2-point it has it's advantages and dis-advantages. That's probably the reason why I still own it, but would gladly trade up in a heartbeat.

Some complain that a 6 point, the side supports blocks grommet holes. Those people are just mounting the rackets wrong, IMHO. Albeit, the Gamma does have wide side supports. My Sensor has a 6 point mounting system, but the towers are fixed, and are limited to mainly tennis rackets. Another reason why I keep the Gamma.

More or less it's personal preference, both systems work fine, and both systems have some slight dis-advantages.
