    String weavers

    Never used one, but I could see them being useful for those who string infrequently and haven't gotten very proficient at weaving. But for those who are proficient, they'd be more of a nuisance than a time saving tool. And I've actually seen some people who have become quite fast with the loop...

    Prince Neos 1500 fixed clamp closing unevenly?

    Cool, glad it's working out. I'm not sure why I misread that!? Makes more sense...I was kind of surprised they had replacement rails.

    Prince Neos 1500 fixed clamp closing unevenly?

    I was wondering the same thing. I don't have any local machinists in my Rolodex though so would have to do some searching.

    Prince Neos 1500 fixed clamp closing unevenly?

    Well after this thread was bumped, it inspired me to take the clamps apart again and examine things more carefully. Turns out I think one of the clamps (the main piece containing the shaft) was machined a little imperfectly. When you rest the 2nd plate of teeth onto the primary piece without all...

    Prince Neos 1500 fixed clamp closing unevenly?

    I think all the those clamps are 12mm which are a smaller diameter than I'm looking for. Thanks for the suggestion though. Have you gotten your glide bar rails yet?

    Prince Neos 1500 fixed clamp closing unevenly?

    True, but I'm not a big fan of the extra wiggly jiggly, so I prefer to get clamps with shaft diameters that are closer to spec.

    Prince Neos 1500 fixed clamp closing unevenly?

    I have not. The original clamps are no longer available. So if I'm to get a replacement, it's either have mismatching clamps (which I'm too OCD for) or splurge on a new pair (and Tennis Machines currently only has 1 in stock anyway). Unfortunately Prince shaft diameters are a less common size...

    Badminton clamps for tennis?

    No Lotto tennis shoes?

    Yeah, those were my favorite. Even had the 6 month warranty.

    Shoe with most cushioning?

    Thanks man. That rules out the Lavs for me. Guess I'll be using the old man Prince T22s and then reassess from there.

    Do the Lav V2 have the same extreme heel-to-toe drop as the V1s?

    Volkl Cyclone Tour and Tier One Black Knight - best co-polys for sensitive elbows

    Experience 1.23 broke super quick on me and didn't feel nearly as comfy as VCT, though it seems many people like it and think it's arm friendly.

    Costco Tennis Balls?

    I've used Penn Championship Balls from Costco for a good while, with the biggest downside being they lost their bounce quickly, meaning they weren't good for even warming up the next day. But unfortunately, the last case I got sucked. Felt plenty firm so had air pressure, but bounce was worse...

    Volkl Cyclone Tour and Tier One Black Knight - best co-polys for sensitive elbows

    Thanks @g4driver. I used various shaped polys with synthetic gut crosses for a while until I started shredding the crosses too quickly as I progressed. In my experience, I recall twisted polys were often easier on the crosses than standard shaped polys, so I think VCT is worth a try in a hybrid.

    Volkl Cyclone Tour and Tier One Black Knight - best co-polys for sensitive elbows

    Thanks. Tension maintenance isn't a huge factor, I'm more concerned with how the twisted and shaped profile of VCT works with synthetic gut crosses. @g4driver , any input here?

    How does VCT work in a hybrid with synthetic gut crosses? I've only used it as a full bed and am looking for a soft hybrid for my nephew.

    Badminton clamps for tennis?

    BTW @Dags , are the universal clamps included with your machine slimmer 5 tooth, or are those actually 4 tooth?

    Badminton clamps for tennis?

    @Dags thanks man, that was exactly my concern, if the lesser surface area would be an issue with the higher tensions of tennis. Decent badminton clamps would probably be fine for my purposes, but maybe I should do better than "fine".

    Anyone use 4 tooth badminton fixed clamps? I recall someone saying they even prefer them.

    305X undoubtedly more comfy in my opinion. The Tour 310 is pretty arm friendly though.

    It's weird because Co-Focus is purported to be a comfy poly by some, but I found that not to be the case.

    Pro Stringer Platinum 2.0 - any reason not to get??

    Not without fabricating some type of custom bracket/stand, so that the Wise could sit upright on its own at the appropriate height and also brace against the racket head to pull tension. It would be a pretty heavy and cumbersome tensioning device to deal with while stringing.

    Individual cross strings "pulling together" during stringing job

    And going back to misweaves, as @Irvin alluded to, you really just have to be mindful at the very top and bottom of the racket, as that is where you'll encounter skips of grommets which will switch how you begin the weave from the previous cross. But for the majority of the racket it should all...

    Individual cross strings "pulling together" during stringing job

    @SpinDoctorGordon , the practice is you weave 1 cross ahead (maybe this is what you're doing, but calling it 2 ahead). And you do this so that you aren't doing a "hard weave", and instead have an easier weave as @UseTheFrame said.

    @eah123 , if you have a drill bit set, you can use the correct size drill bit in lieu of a grommet grinder.
