Any other String Pal users out there? Seems like there's very few of us.
Mine should be here Friday!
I still currently use mine.
I bought a Gamma X2 around 6 months ago, and as I agonized over the choice of inexpensive drop-weights I wasn't aware of the String Pal. Looks like a nice machine, I'd have gladly agonized more over it, but I'm happy enough with my X2.
Sign me up. Just got one. Should be here next week.
I got one for a student of mine that wants to learn to string. I had to customize it. The knobs that tighten the racquet supports sink into the metal turntable too far to really get a good grip on them. I bought two nylon half inch spacers at the hardware store and that has helped a lot. I really don't like the bottom plastic piece that the supports the racquet top and bottom and think I will try the K li pper mate plates instead. I also traded up to the stringway clamps. I really don't like how narrow the Alpha clamps are.
How long ago did you purchase the String Pal? It's supposed to have a new thicker designed swivel bar, so I wonder if that also fixed your issue.
It's not the bar but the 2 bolts holding down the mounts. They are a bit awkward to tighten. Hasn't been a problem for me though. One thing to note is that they don't need to be super tight. Just tight enough that when tension is applied that they don't slip.
