    5 jaw vs 3 jaw clamps

    Personal preference really. I had 3-tooth on my Babolat sensor, but I have 5-tooth on my Prince 6000. I prefer the 5-tooth. The way the 3-tooth are angled can sometimes make it hard to get the clamps close to the edge of the frame.

    Why no love for the Gamma 8800 els?

    Hey GreenClay.... I just spoke to a buddy of mine who is here in my local area and I mentioned this thread to him. He said he knows of a used 8800 (barely used) for sale. Ping me if you want more details and I'll try to find out what I can.

    I want to say no, but I need to double check, which I will try to remember to do later on today.

    No, that's fine. I'll connect with you and shoot you some additional info that might be helpful.

    Why no love for the Gamma 8800 els?

    I know exactly what DD is talking about with the turn table when he says it moves too quickly/easily. I don't think it ever bothered me as much as it did him though. Having used A Babolat and a P6000, I guess I have to admit the I prefer how the tables spin on those better than on the...

    Why no love for the Gamma 8800 els?

    Actually, my crank never went out. It worked well the whole time, though at one point I did dismantle it completely in order to clean it, and it was certainly difficult to get it all back together (but I did, and it worked great!) I just wanted an electronic, so I considered Wise before...

    Why no love for the Gamma 8800 els?

    I put my 6004 bases on the 5800. I don't know if it is still true, but at the time I did it, I had it on good authority that the bases were exactly the same between the 6004 and the 8800. Again, I can't say if that is still true, but it was at the time I did it.

    Why no love for the Gamma 8800 els?

    Yes, in terms of money, the 6004 + wise does make a lot of sense. The disadvantage (in my mind) is that the electronics are 3rd party, so you don't get Gamma's awesome support on that part of it. But maybe Wise has good support too. I don't know - never been down that road. I've been...

    Why no love for the Gamma 8800 els?

    Sorry, I guess maybe my reply was a little unclear. Here's how I see it: There are 3 models of 5800: A: 5800 2pt SC B: 5800 6pt C: 5800 6pt SC There is no 2pt non-SC (doesn't make any sense). So what I'm saying is: if you like 2pt, go with the 5800 and upgrade the base clamps. Then you...

    Why no love for the Gamma 8800 els?

    Honestly, I wouldn't recommend he bother with the non SC version at all. Either go with 5800 2pt SC and upgrade the base clamps. Or go with the 8800 (2pt or 6pt). That's my take. I guess you could consider the 5800 6pt SC, but it's not as good as the 8800 6pt SC (too many knobs, IMO).

    Why no love for the Gamma 8800 els?

    Yeah... regarding gravity release, I've never seen it work very well. I had a Sensor, and it didn't work very well on that machine. And I now have a Prince 6000, and it doesn't work very well on that machine either. But I like the P6000 a little better b/c there is a button to release the...

    Using an awl to straighten crosses

    I use the blunt Prince awl that came with my P6000. I like this method - quick and easy.

    Buy a used machine from Wimbledon ?

    Other possible considerations: P6000 has diablo, Sensor does not P6000 has multiple pull speeds, Sensor does not P6000 has 5 tooth clamps, Sensor has 3-tooth Sensor has more granular control over tension (Prince is full pounds only) Personally I prefer Prince's 5-tooth clamps, as w/...

    Babolat star 5 or sensor vs prince electronic 6000

    I actually don't use the auto release. I manually release every time. Auto release is a nice idea, but it doesn't work on any machine I've ever seen. It didn't work on the Sensor and it doesn't work on the P6000 either. Easier to just push the button to release.

    Babolat star 5 or sensor vs prince electronic 6000

    Occasionally they will twist a little bit, but I find this depends more on me and how I situation the bases before I clamp (in other words, I don't think there is any specific amount of intrinsic drawback any more than any other machine). In fact, I remember when I first got the machine...

    Seeking Specific Prince 6000 Info

    The brake on the Gammas are a sort of plastic mechanism, and I admit that at first glance they might seem sort of cheapy, but I've used the 5800/8800 extensively and believe me, the brake is super solid. You would not be disappointed -- it works very very well. I have a lot of experience with...

    Seeking Specific Prince 6000 Info

    The brake on the Prince is AMAZING. I think it is far and away the best brake on any machine. I owned a Babolat Sensor before the P6000 and it's not even close. The P6000 brake is awesome. I'd say the next best brake are the ones on the high-end Gamma machines. Not sure about wheels -- I...

    Babolat star 5 or sensor vs prince electronic 6000

    I'm not 100% sure, but I THINK they are the same machine except for the mounting system. So if I'm right about that (which I may not be), then that would suggest that yes, they clamps are the same. Love the P6000 clamps by the way! Love love love them!

    Babolat star 5 or sensor vs prince electronic 6000

    Paul, Are the glide rails for Star 3 and 4 considerably different than the Star 5 or Sensor? I was disappointed in how the base clamps moved on the Sensor which is one of the big reasons I gave it up in favor of the Prince 6000. So far, I've found the Prince's base clamps to glide like...

    Babolat star 5 or sensor vs prince electronic 6000

    I used to own a Sensor, but I gave it up in favor of the Prince 6000. I have no regrets about that decision. I prefer the straight track on the Prince, and the base clamps just glide like butter. I like that the Prince has variable pull speed, and I prefer Prince's 5-tooth clamps as well...
