Hi folks, After some frustrations with my current stringing machine, I've been browsing the local craigslist to see if I can find something better. My hope is to find something with high quality clamps and an electric tension head for around $1k. Here are two options I see: 1) Prince 5000. Found a listing for $1500, can probably get it for $1200. I understand the Versa clamps are stellar. The PC board is the major liability here, although it was supposedly replaced only months ago. The seller describes $900 worth of maintenance recently completed by Tennis Machines, including a load cell, PC board, and calibration. Link to listing. If the link doesn't work, it's the only one currently listed on "the big auction site". 2) Gamma X-ST, and upgrade to Wise tension head. I could possibly get the machine for around $400-$450 (local listing is asking $500), and the Wise would add $650-700 to the cost. This results in a newer machine, electronics that are warrantied (for 2 years) and have parts available if needed. The clamps are better than what I've got currently, but not the same cam-lock style as the Prince. Considering the prices are similar, which would you go for? Old school quality on its last legs, or newer and mediocre (nothing against Gamma machines)? I'm tempted to go for the Prince, if only to experience the higher quality clamps. Perhaps that's not the wisest choice I've searched TT and read the threads about the Prince 5000 being at end-of-life. With a new PC board (and the old one, described as possibly functional, included) this kicks the can down the road for the short term. My mind is trying to rationalize the liability in the electronics with plans to salvage the table and fabricate a mount for a Wise, if it comes to that. Not sure if that's possible, it would be a fun project.
