    Gamma Boron nostalgia

    I cant play tennis at the moment because the Governor's shelter edict has closed all courts. Time for some nostalgia... for me it is Gamma Boron string. I liked it in my max 200g and other frames. It was extremely control oriented, almost like a proto-poly but without the snap back and...

    Increase Yonex grip size

    Hi all, I have the following dilemma. My hand works ok with a grip size L5 (4-5/8 inches) although according to all websites I checked I'd need even a bigger grip size. E.g. when I measure my hand with this method I get more than 150mm or 6...

    Tension Difference Between Stringing Machines

    Machines - Gamma X-6FC X-6 Stringing Machine (Drop Weight) - Gamma Progression II ELS Stringing Machine (ELS) Background Used my drop weight for 2 years stringing at 56lbs. Upgraded to the ELS and strung my first racket @ 56 lbs and it felt WAY too tight. Strung the next at 51... still too...

    Gamma 602FC/X6FC vs Alpha Pioneer DC Plus

    So I'm in the market for a stringer. Based on my budget, and goals with stringing, I have narrowed it down to the two options. Which one should I go for? -What is better, Gamma's drum gripper or Alpha's linear? (In terms of ease of use, maintenance etc.) -Which company has better customer...

    Custom Mounted Stringing Machine

    I thought I would share today's project. I have mounted my Gamma Progression 602 FC II turntable, and a Wise 2086 tension head onto a Seville 6 door tool trolley. This was inspired by some photos I saw posted here by another member in an older thread. What I used to do this: - Seville UltraHD...

    Maximum Height Distance Between Racquet/Handle and Diablo?

    Hi all, I am adapting my Gamma Progression 602 FC II Turntable, and Wise tension head to a workbench surface. With the original Gamma base, I have 360 rotation when using the dropweight bracket. The distance between diablo/string gripper and the racquet/handle is 15-20mm with the original...

    Help me choose - Australian limitation >.>

    Hopefully someone can help me choose a stringer that is both good for a beginner and has the option to be upgraded into the future if I decide to do more stringing for others in the area. This I guess is better if it can be fixed with electronic tensioner from wise/etc. I also chose to exclude...

    My little tip for dropweight machines: line level

    I have a Gamma X-6FC dropweight stringer. I'm particular, so I was frustrated with "eyeballing" the dropweight bar to determine if it was level and thus at the desired tension. My solution was to buy a cheap line level and zip-tie it to the dropweight bar. It may seem unnecessary to some, but I...

    Cover for Gamma dropweight stringer?

    A few questions: Has anyone found a cover which fights a dropweight stringer properly, either Gamma or other brand? Which if any of the Gamma covers fit the Gamma X-6FC? I've been told it's the MPMC, but I couldn't figure out how to get it to actually "cover" the stringer given the tension bar...

    What are the differences between these two machines?

    I spend $200+ dollars a month on stringing. It just isn't worth going on like this anymore. The Gamma X-ELS and Gamma Progression II ELS are two portable electronic stringers sold on TW and I honestly can't tell the difference between them besides the color. These are my top picks due to the...
