I've had the new Wise 2086 for a week now, or 6 racquets, and these are my impressions (in use on an Eagnas Combo 910) - The build quality of the Wise is excellent and Herb was very easy to deal with. The "grabber" is a very ingenious design and works flawlessly. No more "ghosting" or scoring of any type on any string used so far. Stringing with the 2086 has completely changed my mindset during a stringjob. I now have a very definite sense of confidence while stringing and am no longer concerned about slippage, drawback or if I have everything adjusted properly. For some reason, drawback has all but disappeared. I have to watch very closely during tensioning to see what very, very little, if any drawback does occur. Using it saves about 5-10 minutes per racquet and I'm still get used to it. Not to mention, I haven't tried out the foot pedal yet. I'll probably through it in the mix this weekend. The adding of the Wise to my machine has ended, at least temporarily, any lusting I previously had for one of the big bucks electronic machines such as a Babolat Star or others like it. My buddy that got one at the same time as me said it best. "Adding the Wise has vastly improved the overall build quality of my machine." He also has an Eagnas crank stringer very similar to mine. Interesting side bar - My friend texted me while stringing his first racquet using the 2086 asking me why when he set the tension at 56lbs he noticed the tension reading on the display had dropped to 53lbs or lower before he could clamp off. Before I could reply, he texted again stating he realized that the controls were not set for "constant pull" and all was well after setting it correctly. If you add the "real" tension difference between my new constant pull method and previous lockout method to the fact that my calibrator was likely off by 3-4 lbs, it's obvious to me that I need to rethink my previously believed optimal tensions for mine and my friends racquets I have been stringing. That's about it. I guess it's obvious that I'm pretty happy with the Wise. Highly recommended! PS I hope Herb doesn't get mad at me, but when I was at his facility I couldn't help but notice an unbelievably gorgeous looking electronic stringing machine that appeared to be a prototype with a built in Wise tensioning device. It did not appear at all to be a 2086 strapped on, but rather a much more streamlined apparatus that blended perfectly into the overall design of a very futuristic looking stringing machine. While I was gawking at it I mentioned to Herb that it will probably cost quite a bit. Herb smiled and and replied "not that much at all". That's all I feel comfortable saying as I'm not sure at what stage of development the project was in (It looked pretty completed to my untrained eye.).
