I’m looking to buy my first stringer, and I’ve narrowed it down to the Gamma and Alpha 6pt, fixed clamp drop weights (apparently I’m into the Greek alphabet). FWIW I already know how to string.

I intend to do a small amount of stringing service with it—probably not enough to warrant the need for a lockout (crank).

Please share your opinions on these models or any comps you think I missed.

I have an older model of 'Gamma X-6 FC' Racquet Stringer. I've been using it for several years and have no complains. The new version has K-type fixed clamps and Slim profile diamond coated string clamps - these are better than what I have on my older version. After few years of using a drop weight I added Wise 2086 Electronic Pro Head Tensioner but it is optional and depends on number of string jobs you do and of course your budget. Hope it helps.

For me, the gamma mount components are more secure compared to alpha, but I don't like the rotational gripper on the gamma.
I'm still going to recommend the gamma with the idea of adding the 2086 later, as previous poster mentioned.


I'm a Gamma user, but at that price point I'd go with the Alpha.

It has better featured base clamps (huge bonus to me), otherwise it's a toss up.
Yes, I would also prefer the linear gripper as well!!
