It's not that cranks are better, it's just that they're usually faster than drop-weights, usually cheaper than electronic, often better than CHEAP electronics , and still perfectly capable machines; as long as the person doing the stringing arrives consistently at the string bed stiffness the player likes/wants/needs the machine is largely irrelevant.
