It would still be usable today if I purchased the upgrade kit years ago, as that made it possible to string the larger racquets of today. I still use it once in a while when a wooden racquet comes my way to string.

Between having to twist the clamp handles to grip the strings and then hand-stretching Fairway grip installations all day, it's no wonder I had a 15" right forearm back then! Still got nasty tennis elbow(that was exacerbated by installing leather grips for many many rackets each day ) when I added teaching/playing each day to the mix.
