I changed the question because I don't want to post a new thread...so I won't be buying it. I wonder if I can convert this to a "what stringer should I get for <$450 that's free standing". So, any suggestions? I've got a Klippermate rite now, except it takes too long to string rackets with it. I'm getting 3 a day now, which may not seem a lot, but for me with hw and everything it is.
