So Yonex is the official stringing partner for the AO. Of course on their social media posts they show off their machine lineup and I have to say, they're pretty impressive.
Anyone here have experience with any of their stringing machines, particularly the CP ones?

I have a ES 5 Protech and a Protech 8 Deluxe. Both machines are very good and solid. Never had problems with them. The clamps from the Protech 8 are much better.

How did you get them? I've been looking online and it seems there are no US distributors.
 
I have personally used the ES5 here in the USA. Honestly one of the smoothest machine and would trade current Racket Station for the ES 5. I love the tension headd as the sesnor was just way ahead of it's time. It's the craftsmanship and like many posted made in Japan, the same quality you would expect in a Tecnifibre made in France machine. Just amazing.

I have only seen the ProTech 8 and for a hefty price tag I couldnt swallow it down to consider it also the fact if there was an issue Japan would be the delivery package. For a 10k machine I'm gonna need something closer and more local support when there are issues with the machine.
 
ProTech 8 I would buy one if I had the volume. I agree though, all of Yonex machines are the smoothest running and highest quality of all the brand's I've used on the market such as Gamma, Babolat and Prince.

I just realize PT 8 deluxe has this function that is uncalled for, but interesting to stringers that have a sudden spike customers that are used to "crank-ed stringbed stiffness"
It is the "normal" stringing method that makes the machine to apply tension to the strings like how a cranked does. LOL.

on top of that. It stacks with prestreching . It means you can do "crank" with X % prestrech.
Ok it's crazy.

Yeah, IIRC on yonex machines it’s called lockout mode.
