I'm a total newb to stringing, first racquet I do on whichever machine I end up with will be my first ever. I will string for myself - not really a string breaker, but I like to experiment with materials and tension - and my 10 year old, who plays a great deal, beyond that who knows, but I don't plan on doing this for money. Am I making a fair comparison with these two machines? Neos is $850 for what looks like a very nice used example. I know it has new clamps, and is basically a "new machine" according to the seller. I've spent time reading and re-reading the sticky and numerous posts, and gone crazy on you tube with the stringing videos. Space is not an issue - this machine will go in a spacious workout room in my house. Thanks for any help here.
