    It's not necessary. I can make a little higher (~12,5mm) supports. IMO it will be a better solution.

    Michal, that may not work for all 6004 model. The Gamma 6004 with 6 pt SC Mounting System (with black mounting arm & universal clamps) come with the fix badminton post. So the side support must be at the preset level.

    Mine is the older model with the non-straight tension rail bar, so it won't be an issue. Besides, i use the MBS loadspreaders for my head and throats.

    You are right. The side-supports should be on the same height. I didn't know about "special" 6/12 billiards.

    About your previous idea. The washers can be raplaced by nuts (1nut->6-8mm height). The screws are propably standard metric (M8 or M10).

    So i guess the best solution for now is to raise the turntable from the stand for Gamma 6004s to try and achieve 360 racket rotation with the Wise.

    If i need to raise the turntable significantly from the gamma 6004 stand, I was pointed to finding replacement screws here:

    Yes, of course.
    This "badminton custom side supports" are the replacement for the original Pro's Pro/Eagnas/Gamma supports. Pro's Pro "k-shape" supports are IMO uncomfortable.

    What about the ASE? Do you have V shoulder supports for the ASE, Michal? :D

    Alpha Shuttle Express (Hi-Qua Portable, Pro'S Pro Shuttle Express- the same construction) are available.
    Pictures below (white- original, blue galvanized- replacement).
    I can design and make any v-side supports.

    business goes well boss ....

    so far I have ordered 8 sets (4 sets of old model, 2 sets of new models, 2 sets of incresed-height model) of Michal's side supports.
    may order another 2 to 4 sets new models later using red and blue color instead of yellow for friends.

    I've attached photos of the new Chudek badminton side supports for the Gamma 6004. Attached are pictures of the supports on my machine and mounted with a racket along with close ups of the support compared to the stock gamma supports. The final picture is of my 3 cab 30ms rackets all strung with Zymax 67 at 24.2 x 26.6 lbs on my Wise. 2 of the rackets used the original gamma supports while one of them used the Chudek support. You can guess which one it is. Thoughts on the supports will have to come later...sleepy...zzzz.

    Thanks for the pictures. I have some questions.
    Can you change the position of washers? Top mount-> bottom mount.
    What about height and compatibility with a Wise ("top" and "bottom" position)?
    What about 360 degrees racquet rotation?

    There was no change in height moving to the new supports in relation to the wise (it is slightly below the gripper 1.5 cm -> i always use the diablo).
    I know the washer is supposed to go below.. I was contemplating buying another set of washers to raise the supports slightly higher.
    I never had 360 degree racket rotation when i used the wise with either the new supports or the gamma supports.

    1.5cm is a lot to raise purely from the side supports.

    are there other ways to raise the table?
