    Non poly that is more durable than standard synthetic gut?

    I feel like Prince Premier Control 16 holds up a bit longer, right? It's definitely one of the most durable multis I've used. Or maybe Head Velocity MLT, I haven't tried that one. Searching for a more durable setup for my nephew (13) who is breaking strings frequently, but I'm not too keen on...

    Prince Neos 1500 fixed clamp closing unevenly?

    I didn't notice the extent of it until today, but one of the fixed clamps on my NEOS 1500 is closing fairly unevenly. Not normally an issue as I usually do poly at low tension, but becomes more problematic when doing soft slippery multis at high tension, since one tooth will leave a bit of an...

    Stringway MS140 Quick Take

    With a global pandemic limiting my tennis and completely eliminating my travel, it seemed only sensible to pickup a portable stringing machine :unsure:. But I’ve been a bit intrigued by this machine since its conception, so when one came up on the classifieds, curiosity got the better of me...

    Anyone compare Kirschbaum Xplosive to Cyclone Tour?

    Thinking about trying some Xplosive out while it's on sale. Seems like these strings are in the same realm of things and I'm a pretty big fan of Cyclone Tour.

    Prince T22.5 Fit

    These shoes look great. Like what I was hoping the Prince T22 Lites would be (not that the Lites were necessarily bad shoes). So you stated these have the classic T22 fit, but for a while the T22s ran a little narrower. Are the new 22.5 a little wider and roomier like the classic T22? So roomier...

    Klippermate in case as carry-on luggage?

    Anyone know if this is possible? My niece is visiting from California soon and I was going to teach her to string. And if she wanted, I was going to give her my Klippermate. The case is a little longer than a typical carry-on luggage, but I thought it may still be passable.

    Alpha M8 Electronic Table Top Stringer

    Anyone see this? Looks pretty sweet for $1200. Appears to have a rotating linear gripper. And details say it has an auto table brake and gravity release clamps!? I don't see where there would be room for the brake? EDIT: Looking at Alibaba it seems to have a thumb screw manual brake.
