I'm pretty good on guitars. Time's gone by and I realize I don't need another one.

For me, it would be great fun to have a shiny, good-smelling, bright new machine to toy with. And fun, too, to learn how to use it. Fun.

But I suspect there are other joys that would be more enduring for me, and a new stringing machine would be transitory, and my mule of a Klippermate will just keep plodding on doing a great job for me when I need to use it.

For me, the thing's have fresh strings, rather than dead ones, and a Kmate does the trick here.
This is how I feel these days about some other hobbies (namely computers). Passion isn't there for certain aspects of it... next one I'm looking at is 3D printers/rapid prototyping

Because of these, I have been looking around, eagnas logic-90, ML100 are among them.

On the other hand, I restring my racquets once every two weeks or so. So the volume is limited. One thing I am afraid the most is if the upgrade fell short my expectation after having it, or there is maintainance issue involved (the X-2 is simple enough that I don't expect it can break.) going forward.

I guess if I will ever upgrade, it must be because I can't resist the tempation.
I'd recommend getting a cheap/small bubble level module and use some hot glue to attach it to either your dropweight bar or the gripper. should be a pretty easy mod
