    Hello everyone,

    I do not speak English very well because I'm French, sorry if you do not understand very well.

    I'll buy a stringing machine Eagna ST-250 and I wonder if I can buy safely on the site http://www.eagnas.com/store/index.php
    I ask this because I'm afraid to buy counterfeit or even worse: never received my package.

    One last question: Where can I find a list of online retailers that Yonex are installed in China, Japan and USA?
    Again, this is not to buy counterfeit.

    And this time it's my last question: can we trust this site: http://www.mybadmintonstore.com/shop/
    I want to say is: this site is there a Yonex dealer?

    I ask these questions because there are many counterfeit in France on the site not resellers.

    Thank you in advance for answers

    Thank you for these answers very fast.
    I'm going to order without risk.

    I'll let you know when I received the package and I will tell you if I'm satisfied.

    I am at Poitiers, and you?

    Sorry to answer in English but the moderator because it is better to speak in English so that everyone understands.

    Thank you but it's good, I use google translation works really well because in fact I only speak very little English, just the minimum.
    So do not worry, it will, thank you anyway.

    It is OK to speak in French once a while as long as you provide translation. My French is really really bad now...

    I was not even ordered my stringing machine because I just realized that I forgot to ask you a question (indeed, this is my first stringing machine):
    How to kg or lbs can reach Eagna ST-250?
    And I want to buy me flying clamp and I heard they could not exceed a certain tension rope if they slipped.
    I saw this one: Eagna PN-7066 and I want to know what voltage is it without slipping?

    I assume you are asking the maximum tension ST250 can pull. I remember it is 5-50lb / 2-24kg.
    And I want to buy me flying clamp and I heard they could not exceed a certain tension rope if they slipped.
    I assume you are asking what is the maxium tension for fly clamp before it slip. From my experience, the HiQua style clamp is about 30~31 lb without slip. Yonex clamp can go above 34 lb.
    I saw this one: Eagna PN-7066 and I want to know what voltage is it without slipping?That is a fix clamp for glide bar style machine. It is not a fly clamp. PN3050 is what you need if you get a St-250.
    Good luck

    Thank you

    You tell me about the PN3050, which is its maximum voltage before the slide?

    Otherwise, with ST 250, I can still take a fly clamp Yonex?

    Just as a note, the word you're looking for is tension, not voltage. Voltage is the measure of the driving force for current between two points denoted by the SI units of Volt (V).

    You can use any flying clamps you want to since they are "flying" as in not attached to the machine in any way.

    As for the tension it will hold, I'd say it's the same or close to the hiqua ones.

    Very good.

    Thank you all for helping me.
    I'm going to order the machine with Yonex flying clamps.

    So here, I ordered the machine and I have not received (as normal as I would get in about 3 months (yes I know ...).
    And I just saw that on the forum, some complained of Eagna so I wonder if I have not made a mistake when ordering.

    What do you think?
    On some threads, they talk about scratch in machines, machines that have already served, or even different machines to those they had ordered and Eagna said it was okay since it was virtually the same machine, ...

    So do I get a good package with good order and everything I ordered?
    The machine is she new or used?

    I hope I do not have a problem with this brand (besides my first machine), do not tell me that everything will go just so I do not care, I just want to know if I'll be disappointed.

    Thank you in advance

    I bought an ST-200 off them (Eagnas) and it arrived after just over 3 months. Their default shipping option is ground, which usually (meaning no unexpected problems/delays) will take about 6-8 weeks to arrive at their destination. Mine took longer than that probably because I am in New Zealand.

    As for the machine itself, yes it did have some scratches, manual is absolutely hopeless (photocopy of something and all the diagrams are just about impossible to see).

    BUT - putting together the machine and working it out is a no-brainer, and it worked flawlessly. I ordered some clamps and a tension calibrator - which was very easy to use as well. They even supplied me with an extra clamp. So overall I'm very happy with what I got.

    As for MyBadmintonStore - highly recommend this shop, quick, no hassle, and perfect items.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Is there other opinions?
    Other people have had problems?
