    Stringing natural gut...

    Hi guys, I'm a new stringer... just did job 10 today and really enjoying it. I'm working up to doing natural gut and had a specific and a general question. The specific question is about starting the crosses. I just cut out my old natural gut set that came from the pro shop. For the crosses...

    Machine advice

    Thanks so much @hadoken! One of the challenges I've been having with my search is coming to terms with how well used machines hold their value. I've sold dozens of items on craig and the bay and haven't been able to sell anything for relatively close to the price of a new item like many of these...

    Pro's Pro Challenger I vs Penta Premium Stringer 3600

    Unfortunately, don't have direct experience... as I was looking, I got scared away from the PS3600 by comments here about the inferiority of the clamps and advice to stay away from the European brands (Penta and Pro's Pro). I was bummed because they seemed like good value machines (and might be...

    Pro's Pro Challenger I vs Penta Premium Stringer 3600

    Problems with VCORE pros.

    I bought 3 over the course of 3 months from three separate retailers (to use demo credits) and they are all within 1 gram of each other with identical 4 3/8 grips. Others have said their QC was pretty good so I'm surprised to hear about variability but it's certainly possible.
