    Gamma 6004 6pt worth $3K CAD?

    Hi, I am thinking of buying a stringing machine. Budget is 3.5K CAD. I kind of wanted to buy an electronic machine so initially I had my eyes set on Gamma XLT but looks like its overpriced from the comments I have read on numerous threads. And its out of stock all over Canada. I noticed a...

    Can a Klippermate dropweight replace a ratchet mech?

    I currently have a Klippermate. If I upgrade to a 6-point, fixed clamp, dropweight machine with a ratchet mechanism, is it possible to replace the ratchet with the Klippermate dropweight? Any thoughts?

    Gamma X-6 FC & Alpha Pioneer DC Plus

    I’m looking to buy my first stringer, and I’ve narrowed it down to the Gamma and Alpha 6pt, fixed clamp drop weights (apparently I’m into the Greek alphabet). FWIW I already know how to string. I intend to do a small amount of stringing service with it—probably not enough to warrant the need...

    MiStringer Stringing Machine -- Thoughts?

    I've heard glowing reviews about this through their customer reviews, do you all have any experience with this? I've read that it's better than any drop weights and easy to use after the learning curve. At only around $300, it seems like a steal, but I have never met anyone who actually has/uses...

    Gamma 600 FC is it good?

    It's on the Bay - Adding pics in a sec since I found I can't post the URL It is definitely not in great condition, but it looks workable, and it has fixed clamps. I imagine maybe the clamps need to be replaced, but I can't tell if it has everything I need. $330 shipped is ok I guess. Any advice?

    Stringing machines below $900 (Penta 3600 with Wise or Gamma/Alpha with crank?)

    I used to string with the cheap Klipmate and I had a pretty bad experience with it as I hated trying to balance the weight and would waste a lot of time. Also, I think I must have some attention deficit but I liked to string while watching tv so I would feel less miserable doing it. I feel like...

    Upgrading to Lockout Machine

    I've been stringing for a few years now with my trusty Gamma 200. Pretty recently, I used my mate's Prince crank and even though it was my first time using a crank, I found that it was just much quicker and less fiddly than my drop-weight, so I am now looking to get a decent crank machine. I'm...

    What machine....?!

    To add Wise 2086 on Gamma X-ST, or to sell it and go with a new machine with better clamps? Primarily used for a serious junior player, and definitely we have to go with an electronic CP machine. We don’t like rotational gripper like one on Gamma X-ELS. The cost is important but quality, and...

    Best advice for anyone playing tennis more than 1 hour per month

    If you play tennis at least 1 hour per week. Buy the string you can cut the most often. Buy a stringing machine and cut strings as often as possible. Your arm will love it. For example Pro's Pro Blackout is a great string and very cheap. You should cut any poly or co-poly after 30 min and no...

    Siboasi Stringing Machines

    Anyone had any experience with Siboasi Stringing Machines? From what I can tell, their cheaper electronic version is the same as the model from Pro's Pro. They seem to be competively priced and I am considering buying one.
