I also strung my first racquet on it last evening while watching the Federer/Berdych match. At first it was awkward, as installing the Wise cancels out the '360 degree' feature of the base (the racquet handle bumps up against the Diablo), but once I got into a rhythm, things went swimmingly.

The pre-stretch feature is real nice since I do many gut/poly hybrids. No longer do I have to walk the length of my basement, ensuring I don't kink the gut on the way, then give it a tug.

All in all, I'm real happy w/ the decision.
Well, to be fair, the pre-stretch function doesn't solve what manual pre-stretching is for: coil memory. It's not to be used (nor considered) as a substitute. Most stringers aren't prestretching gut for the tension effects.
