Okay folks, I've been all over the boards on this. I've searched the web, these boards and read enough to make me tired regarding what appears to be the two most popular, under-$200 stringing machines out (the Klippermate and the Gamma X-2). From all I've read, it appears to come down to a choice between better clamps (Klippermate) or the ratchet system (Gamma). For those of you who have owned or used both machines... - Is the ratchet system (X-2) that much better than the cam system on the Klip? Yes or No and why do you feel that way? - Are the clamps that much better on the Klip than those of on the Gamma? Yes/No/Why? - Finally, having owned the system you have (Klippermate or X-2), would you swap out the clamps (on X-2) for Klippermate clamps? Would you love your Klippermate more if it had a ratchet/rotational gripper? Thanks for the help. I'm going to pull the trigger on buying one of these two machines by the end of the week.
