Thanks for all the replies

I think I may have to up my budget a bit, since I'm going for a solid constant pulling electronic machine.

How much will one of the good cheaper electronic machines cost me - I have limited my search to Europe because most shops in the US simply will not ship stringing machines to Europe because of too high shipping costs.

I buy tennis and golf gear all over the world - yen, , $ what ever - I'm buying where the service is good and the price is right

We still use 'Kroner' in Scandinavian countries. But I buy stuff all over the world, problem is that tennis shops in the US won't sell a stringing machine to a guy from Europe because of too high shipping costs.

Once you goto a constant pulling electronic machine nothing compares anymore.

When I switched out from crank machines to electronic machines word of mouth and the overall quality of my work gave my business a 30% increase.
I think I will have to spend a little bit more and get an electronic machine - any recommenations ?

You are in the right forum, these people here offer great advice and they don't bite.

I would say go with an electronic constant pull unit model. The crank machines people have suggested are good machines but you were spoiled using a Babolat Star 5. Will you be able to go back turning a crank as opposed to pushing a button?

One additional note: Some of these machine listed might not be available in your country.
I take all your advice and will go for an elctrical machine. Budget for that is now $2K. Is that enough ?
