    For those with a Wise Tensioner

    I have had mine since the spring of 05. First problem I had was this fall when the tension head "kicked up" and got off track. Sent it back to Herb and he fixed it, tuned it up and it has run flawless since. Going back to the crank was a terrible 2 weeks... If I would buy again - great...

    Wise 2086 Pro tension head problem

    I had the same problem in Sept of this year. Sent it back, if it happens again I will open it up try that. It made a grinding noise and went all the way back to the panel. Tilted up at an angle. The wise has been flawless other than that...I have had mine for many many years...

    Gosen OG sheep vs OG Micro

    Like Nuke said, this has been debated for many years on this forum. I buy the reel, it is cheaper and does the job for a good inexpensive syn gut.

    I remember PSA, I was a member also. I still have some old business cards with that information on the cards...Seems like it was in the late 70's.

    Prince Pro 110?

    Probably the most popular prince racket. It followed up the classic. I would guess it was 1980 that it was introduced. Had a problem "spooning and bending" you often saw them lopsided. One of the easiest racket to string. I used to string one at 80 lbs for this really big hitter, don't...

    power pads?

    Everyone used to use them on wood rackets on the 4 main strings. Don't really think they made any difference. The theory was the it reduce the angle, and was easier on the string. Cutting up on old leather or replacement grip would work...

    Dos anyone else do this?

    Illegal - You can't be serious!!! Everyone used to do this in the 60's and 70's and probably before. Look at old photos of stan smith, even billie jean king held 2 balls when serving. Nearly everyone had a 1 handed backhand.

    What would you pick?

    As a long time owner of the Ektelon Model D and Model H - I would have to go with a neos, but the Apex 2 would be a very close second.

    Wise 2086 - Tell us your experince

    I have had mine 3 years, it is on an Ektelon Model H. Gave new life to an old machine. I have 3 teenage sons who all play, and they use it several times a week for themselves and a few friends. Once you get used to the foot pedal - you will wonder how you did without it.

    Can someone defend EAGNAS?

    I can't defend Eagnas, but they have a market share of new stringers. They advertise in tennis magazine. Competition from them probably keeps the others in line with lower prices.

    Should I buy a $400 Ektelon Model H?

    I bought mine around 84, bought a Model D in 79 and sold it to by the H. The guy that bought my model D with the upgrades still has it and strings occasionally. They last forever with minimal care...

    Should I buy a $400 Ektelon Model H?

    First make sure it is an H. I had a model D and then later bought an H. It was a long time ago, but I thought the D was the last cabinet model. They called it the DE or something like that. If it is an H, and nothing is missing - I would jump on it. If it has been kept inside and in good...

    Do i need a stringing machine?

    If you are really into tennis, than it is a great investment. But if this is just another phase of jumping into something and getting bored or finding out it wasn't for you - you might wait a year and see if your interest in the game is still the same. My sons have some pretty expensive gear...

    Help in Dealing with eagnas anyone?

    Let me get this straight - you want a complete stranger to purchase a machine for you, and then you will send them the money...because you don't have confidence to purchase the machine directly from the company. Sometimes saving a few bucks isn't worth it. Buy something that you have...
