Ok it seems like every thread about machines gets hijacked with 2 vs 6 point mounting. I know that I'm guilty and I'm sorry for that! So here you go this thread is designed to have a good debate on the subject. I know this has been talked about before but I think that we could get something going here. Debate the effectiveness, speed, ease of use or whatever comes to your mind! Also for people with questions about the different mounting systems just ask them here and I'm sure someone will answer it for you! At the end I will try to make a list of the pro's and cons of both. Here is my opinion: I prefer the 6 point over the two point. I have strung many frames on the Prince 3000 and Babolat Star 5. I feel like mounting the racquet is faster and easier on the 6 point. Also I think that stringing is not impaired at all by having the extra mounts. Sure at first anything can slow stringing but it took me 5 string jobs to get used to the 6 point on the Babolat machines. Also with the 2 points you have to lock the frame down. I don't like this at all. I only have had physics one semester in college so I don't understand all the different variables effecting the distortion of the frame but to me the way that the frame is locked down would put too much force in one place. Also what do you see in the stringing rooms at all the ATP tournaments? You see Babolat, TF, Wilson, and The AO uses the Top Serve(?) machine. All have 6 point. I'm not saying that this alone is reason enough to use the 6 point or even to make it any better but they wouldn't be using them if they were not the best available. This is just my 2 cents. There are tons of other reasons to support either side.
