I bought a Accuswing2 from this dealer recently.
yes. they don't ship outside China.
So I contact some logistic forward company which is located in China.
They ship to local forward company, then this company ship to South Korea again.
Finally I got it.
total cost is around 850$.
I'm happy with accuswing2. it has calibration feature and accurate enough. (I compared w/ Prince RDC of my racquet)
Does your machine measure down to 1/10 or is readout just in whole numbers?

I read in latest Tennis Industry magazine that Dunlop has made available a swingweight machine for US market. Go to Dunlopsports page and look under Equipment-->Machines. Looks like a rebranded Accuswing with hefty pricetag: $1,300. :oops:

Yeah, was a kick in the balls to see that price tag. Also, they don't ship to Canada (and the international Dunlop site doesn't have the machine), and they want the payment method to have a US address, so those are just additional headaches. With the exchange rate, the cost of getting this thing is in the neighbourhood of a Gosen GM31, which is a 3-in-1.

I just purchased a Head 3 in 1 machine. Really a nice machine with good built-quality.
Does it measure in whole numbers or tenths? How accurate is it will it measure the same thing 5 times in a row if you remount and measure the racket every time?

It measures weight in .1 and the swingweight in .5 units. So far it is very accurate and displays the same thing 5 times in a row even if remove and remount the racket again

With the amount of racquets I've been able to properly customize at this point rather than relying on an app, I can somewhat justify the ridiculously high price.

Have to correct, by default it measures swingweigt with .5 unit, but I found by coincidents a “hack” and the machine can be changed to also display the swingweight by .1 unit!

That’s much better. If you can measure in 0.1 increments will you get the same reading each time?

I have to do a couple more measurements, but yesterday with the calibration rod it showed quite consistent results (sometimes it had a .2 variance). Overall it is really good, especially since most other machines measure in whole numbers only

Try using a racket instead of a calibration rod. I would think that would be harder. Measure the racket on the vertical and horizontal axis.

Used the unstrung racket today. Vertical axis was always between 304.8 and 305.0. Horizontal axis was at 320.2 to 320.4

I managed to find a PTC. After receiving it I took my two rackets that I 'matched' by hand with just balance and overall weight. They were only off by 3 points of swing weight. I could feel it but I wasn't sure how to adjust it without the sw measurement. I have since stripped the hoop weight and matched them. They now have identical specs at: 315g, 31.0cm balance, and a 300g swing weight. It's a cool machine and I'll be interested to take some of the rackets I've done for my college players and see how close they are. The Yonex will be fine because their batch specs are good but I'll be curious to see how different the SW are for the Wilson, Head, and Babolat frames.
Intrested in what you found in regards to differences in college players frames!

Please tell us head machine owners how :)
If you hold the measurement arm to the right you hear a “beep” then the amount of measurements will show up (also mentioned in the instruction manual). Keep holding the arm to the right until you hear three fast “beep beep beep”. Now the machine will show .1 instead of .5 accuracy. To switch back to .5 simply do the same again.
