I have decided to start stringing my own racquets. It is a no-brainer from a cost standpoint--even if you don't want to experiment with strings. Even a $400 machine would pay for itself in less than a year. It seems very simple and straighforward, and easier than many of the projects I tackle around the house. I have been reading about various machines, and it sounds like a Klipper or X-2 would do the job, but they look so cheap and unsubstantial. I want my tensions to be accurate, rather than +-2 lbs or so, and my machine needs to be precise (it used correctly). I am also a little leery about a machine that takes 2-3 hours to string a racquet. Heck it only takes me about 45 minutes to build a set of golf clubs. So I am now attracted to machines like the Mutual Power 680, with fixed clamps, 6 point mounts and great (IMO) tensioning system. Of course it is more expensive, and I am worried that it is overkill for my needs, which would be perhaps 2-3 string jobs/month. Any thoughts?
