    Lockout calibration question

    I forgot what the OP mentioned after 2 pages of reading. I would have given up and called the machine manufacturer.

    Eagnas Combo 910/Pro's Pro Turntable Wobble

    Quality machines and customer service! When they call their machines and product trash, why buy from them? I love the sue me comments!

    How long does it take to string a racquet?

    I like that he backed up what he said. He earned some cool points with me.

    looking for strining machine

    I was thinking the same thing Dire. I don't think anyone does research before they post their questions. I remember before I bought my lock out I had my list narrowed down based on the info provided by reputable posters and the same when I added a Wise. I even picked up new stringing...

    For older Ektelon and other machines

    I think that is an awesome upgrade. It will save people so much money. The upgrade looks like it is solidly machined and will last a life time. If you think about it $220 is is a good investment vs buying expensive floating clamps.

    Any one else shed tears when Andy spoke?

    I agree with the poster above.^ I am not a Murray fan but his emotional reaction made me respect him. Murray has a few things to work on and he will win a slam. The biggest thing he needs to work on is his variety on second serve. I think Ivan Lendl will help get Andy over the hump. The...

    Death to the starting knot

    Same for me! I never had a knot break or slip through a grommet. If you are having issue with your grommets. Tennis-Flare-It makes a grommet tool that will flare and kinda fold down the grommet closer to the frame. I use it when I have a new racquet to string. I like it because it puts the...

    How heavy is the counterweight on a dropweight stringer?

    Order it on line and save on shipping/taxes. You should be able to find a solid drop weight with some sort of shipping special or deal.

    My Wise 2086 Tension Head Died!!!

    I already have an Alpha Apex 2 so I'm not too concerned about fan patterns. I can't remember the last time I strung a fan patterned stick? Hmm maybe about 2 years. I won't need to modify a thing. I get a mint Neos 1k for 3 bills, the manual, and all the parts. All I need to do is calibrate and...

    Federer vs Youzhny Wimbledon quarters 2012

    I would say 80%. If he knocks Youzhny off in 3 which looks highly likely. He will be able to rest it and get more treatment.

    My video clips thread

    I support the above see a teaching pro statements. I didn't get my serve issues corrected until I had a college player buddy of mine to help me correct my technique. On the TW message board: A so called expert could possibly be a 12 year old... Honestly, a tennis clinic or a few lessons...

    My Wise 2086 Tension Head Died!!!

    ^I usually use USPS but their boxes are a bit flimsy. I don't feel as bad about this situation because I'm about to buy a mint condition Prince Neos 1000 for $300. A buddy of mine is getting rid of his machine. He doesn't play the game anymore. The machine never saw much use since he only...

    Quality: Klippermate vs $1000+ machines

    I've strung gut on a Klipper. I was careful as hell because that cam gripper isn't gut or soft multi friendly. It can be done though.

    Wise2086 vs Drop weight like Stringway ML 100

    Not much to go wrong on the ML100 because it is a drop weight machine. Approximately $1200 for a new machine vs $500 for the add on? I would go with the Wise. I like the functionality of the Wise with the foot pedal. The pre-stretch option is awesome. I was leaning towards the MS200 but then...
