    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.
