5 jaw vs 3 jaw clamps

My stringer has 5 jaw clamps and I noticed that their are similar machines with 3 jaw clamps. Additionally, i have found that I can buy the 3 jaw clamps to "upgrade" my clamps.

Can anyone tell me what the real difference in these clamps are? benefits? etc? :confused:

thanks!

Personal preference really. I had 3-tooth on my Babolat sensor, but I have 5-tooth on my Prince 6000. I prefer the 5-tooth. The way the 3-tooth are angled can sometimes make it hard to get the clamps close to the edge of the frame.

i had those 3 tooth clamps on my eagnas and have 5 tooth on my gamma.

both seem fine to me, i've broken both types fwiw. on the egnas, the threaded bolt for adjustment just snapped off and on the gamma the roller bearings inside just exploded somewhat).

both worked fine before and after replacement. the newer gamma clamps had re-designed bearing setup.

I have had flying clamps, 5 tooth, and 3 tooth. By far I like the 3 tooth best. They all worked as designed.
