Hi, i'm completley new to the stringing area and I've been seriously considering buying a machine lately. I have a strict $150-$170 max budget (including shipping) and at first was going to go with the Klipper M140, but adding in practice strings and shipping, it goes over my budget... I live close enough to racketsupply, which by their website says they sell gamma x-2's, to drive by and buy one. I've read some good reviews on this machine but was wondering if it is ready to string badminton rackets or do i need to modify it? (different weight, clamps, etc.). If it's ready to go for badminton rackets this would be my top choice. the eagnas hawk 15 looked enticing but i was worried about the gripper as i read that i could damage strings at higher tensions. If it was possible to replace the girpper with a better one, then this would be a viable option as well. also i'd be mostly stringing with microlegend or bg-65 so i dont' know how that will affect any stringjob that i might do. I'm not sure if there's many machines out there that fit my budget and are safe to string with at my usual tension of 24-25lbs so i would really appreciate any help at all . also if anyone is selling a used machine in my price range, please pm me .
