Good advice.

Once you string on a better stringer you will wish you hadn't purchased an entry level model. If you string one racquet a month you are probably better off with a Klippermate or equivalent. If you string multiple racquets each week you will be happy if you saved up for something better (if you can afford it).

EDIT - I see that you only plan to string 4-5 racquets a year. You might go with an entry level model and then sell it if you decide to do more. Then again, once you have a stringer and can easily try new strings / tensions, you might find that you are using it much more than expected.
