How much does your machine weigh and is it hard to move it around ?
And since I use VS Team nat gut in the mains of all my racquets, I need to prestrecth the gut strings prior to stringing. Isn't it only electronic machines, that can prestrecth properly and precise ?
Golly, got no answers for you there, CHU. I don't have nor have ever seen an MS200 in person. I've never strung natural gut. I can't imagine the gut would be an issue, but perhaps the electronics have things to offer that the non-plug-in machines simply don't. Ask your Stringway contact. You may consider contacting Mark Gonzales here in the States. He appears to be a straight-up guy who finds reward in offering second-to-none service. Just a thought.
By the way, I've strung 8 rackets over the weekend, and just can't get enough. It's more fun than you can shake a stick at.
I'll follow this thread and see what you come up with.
