I had one for awhile (eagnas). Victor was sort of a pain, but with the proper approach he was no big deal. But yes, I would agreeI would agree.
Fortunately it sounds like Pro’s Pro doesn’t have the same abysmal customer service that Eagnas owners enjoy (ahem...or not).
I also own one and it's also my first machine!Pro’s Pro Tomcat MT-400 owner here. I’m very happy with it, but it’s my first stringer ever, so I cannot tell you if it’s better or worse than other electronic, linear pull machines.
Try another measuring tool first. Something digital (they're cheap) perhaps or at least another spring calibrator.I also own one and it's also my first machine!
Do you know how to calibrate it? The "manual" says nothing except spring measures aren't accurate enough and it's calibrated in the factory, but the Pros Pro tension calibrator I have says it's off by +3kg when set to 25kg. At 10kg it's on the mark. ALSO adding to my confusion is the rackets I've strung don't feel too tight when playing with them but do register as high with racquet tune (not that I trust it much).
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, I actually did this yesterday. I bought some digital fish scales and the Pros Pro seems to be on the mark.

After that, it likely works like many other lockouts as far as calibration. I have a eagnas 910 Combo manual i can send
you and since i think many pro's pro and eagnas machines are "the same" i'd at very least say the tension heads are
the same/similar enough.
it is normal to have very little drawback. i recall @Irvin has a video explaining about that.Follow up question...
I don't know (for lack of experience) if this happens on all machines, but I've noticed that when releasing the string from the tension head (while clamped and locked in) it appears the clamp moves back a few millimeters. What's that all about? It feels really solid when I try to move it while locked with my hand.
