    Hello,

    I am beating between two choises. One is Pro's Pro P100 which is not widely spread and I can't find any reviews on the web. The other is somesing like Pro's Pro XP Plus + Wise 2086. The advice of the people familiar with stringing is appreciated.

    My budget is 1500$ at most, including shipping to Russia and all other additional stuff.

    Sincerely,
    Aleksandr.

    P.S. Sorry for my english.

    I would get the Electronic 3600 from Watdon: http://www.watdon.co.uk/wd-strings/acatalog/Electronis_Stringing_Machines.html

    I would say it's the best budget setup.

    Things you should look for considering YOUR budget:
    -fixed clamps (4-5 prongs at least on each clamp, most are dual-action)
    -6-point support
    -electronic tensioner, preferably Wise 2086 since it wouldn't blow your budget
    -possibly some flying clamps if you want

    Thank you for answers.

    To Alex82
    It sims that this machine is overpriced combination of rebranded wise and a basic stringing machine.

    Ebout "Electronic 3600". I found post about its 6 point system, that shows the distortion of the racket frame during stringing. So I'm a little bit concerned about its rigidity.

    Also I didn't get - what does mean "dual-action"?

    Seems to be another version of it as well (3800): http://www.tennisman.de/stringing-m...line/discho-premium-stringer-3800.html?lang=1

    Yes the tension head is a rebranded wise but the rest of the machine is a much better quality than a Pro's Pro.

    My first machine was a Pro's Pro. Good machine to learn and begin stringing, but if you want to earn money with it a Pro's Pro is the wrong choice.
