    Ok so I am currently a highschool player and I do not know much about stringing racquets. I break strings often and I am starting to think about stringing my wn raquet. But I am afraid that i might be bad and crack the frame or some kind of accident might happen. So i was wondering if I am capable of doing this by myself or i should not bother and buy thick polystring and live off that.

    Also i know there are variety of stringing machine out there and they are all made for same purpose but... Do they string the same? Is it okay to buy a cheap machine?

    there are basically two types of string machines, drop weight and electronic. I currently use the Gamma X-2 which is a great starting machine. runs about 140 dollars. it really isn't too hard to string rackets, if you are afraid to break you racket using an old racket is great idea.
    I love this stringer and its one of the cheapest machines on the market- works perfect. others have also talked about klippermate being a good starting machine.

    You are a keen player, love the game, break strings and a high school student with a limited budget. The ingredients are all in place - you meet the minimum qualifications, get yourself a dropweight stringing machine. Stringing is easy, follow the instructions, seek the advice you need and you will soon be churning out consistent stringbeds with a mixture of strings, gauges and tensions. Get yourself a Gamma x-2 or Klippermate at around $150 and you'll wonder why you delayed. And no, you won't be bad and crack the frame and you will be more than capable of doing this by yourself. And, we are all here to help.
