Best manual stringer for the Wise 2086
 
Hi...

I am new to the world of stringing.
What manual stringer would you guys recommend for a Wise 2086?
Something with it's own stand (no table tops). A Prince? A Gamma?
2 point, 4 point, 6 point?

Thanks in advance.

Anything with a tension rail. Though a Pro Pro's XP Plus or Pilot need a modified tension rail adapter.

If you want 360 rotation you may want to verify the tension rail is low enough to accommodate that.

Anyone ever installed on neos 1000? would the wise head low enough to make turn table to turn 360 degree? Will that be a good thing or bad thing? I mean the original tension head height has its reason. :confused:

^^^^^^^^^^^^^
My Wise is mounted on a Neos 1000. No, it does not give 360 degree rotation, but neither did the lockout tensioner so I don't miss what I never had.

Just a thought. If you are new to stringing, why get a Wise??
A Wise is typically for those that have a lockout, (and some drop weights) ,
and want to upgrade it to electronic with the Wise add on.
Would you not be better served just getting an electronic right from the beginning, as those machines are designed that way to be electronic.
I really don't buy the idea that some say if the power goes out you have a crank, as if the power goes out, last thing on your mind is stringing anyways.

Maybe some truth in what jim_e said. 9 months after the northeast black in 1965 big black out the NY Times ran a story that reported some doctors as saying there was a increase in birth rates. That story was debunked in 1970.

Ref - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northeast_blackout_of_1965

Maybe some stringers broke out some candles and kept right on going.

All power outages do not happen at night:)

When you string in the basement with no windows it does not matter.

I want to keep things as small as possible, without the lady screaming her head off.

Add to the fact, I can easily get away with the price for a manual stringer and adding the wise later without her noticing.

Back to the topic, which stringer would allow a 360 turn? Is it all that necessary?
I am totally clueless about stringers, I don't even know the benefits of having a 2, 4 or 6 point clamp. I just want to know which stringer is most reliable, and works seamlessly and accurately well with the wise.

Have you read this thread? Without knowing anything about stringing or stringers, why are you so dead set on a Wise?

g_desilva 03-28-2013 05:53 AM

Agree with Irvin above. It's important to understand the basics of stringing, figure out what you want to accomplish with your stringing, and how many racquets do you potentially see yourself stringing?

If it's just for you, or a family member...it's not worth putting in a potentially big investment, because it will take quite a while to make it back. However, if you're really just looking for a great machine, and want a high quality one because you enjoy the process of stringing, then by all means, get the best you can afford!

Gamma 6004. Without the Gamma adapter i believe it maintains 360 degree clearance with the WISE head.

Here is some advise from someone who has a Gamma and a Wise, and his thoughts.

Without the Gamma adapter the Gamma 6004/5003 maintains 360 degree rotation.

That's a 4 year old post from LittlElvis, All the OP has to consider is the Machine and the Wise. The foot pedal and gentle jaws are not needed, as well as the Gamma adapter. Though it's still about $1800-1900 total cost for the setup.
