The Stringways are drop weight but they are constant pull with CORRECT TENSION AT ANY ANGLE. You don't have to mess around with 90 degree angle on the tension bar and repulling to get the correct angle. I have a LaSerFibre - older model which is the exact same machine as the Stringway and I am also very please. I look at it this way - there is not much that can go wrong with a heavy metal bar with a heavy metal weight on the end as gravity is pretty consistent. Much more consistent and reliable than an electric motor.Hey thanks for the reply. But i already have a dropweight that i am selling when i get a new machine. Could consider a good crank if i can't find a decent electronic. Any other suggestions?
I agree, rather a good crank or drop weight than an entry level electric or electronic. And 800 euro will not buy you a decent electric/electronis machine.Just to add that cheap electronic is no match for this workhorse.
