    Hawk 80 is good, 6 point mounting, and linear ball bearing string gripper, with dual swivel clamps $325usd.

    I have same design with only 1 swivel clamp. easier with 2.

    Watch out with Eagnas stringing machine. I bought one and Kwun bought one. We had a lot of problem with the support. I broke four of the support because I was trying to tighten it so that it does not move. Anyway, Kwun sold his Hawk 80. I am trying my best to sell mine, Hawk 800 (Standing version with manual crank string tensioning). If you are interested, I am selling it for $350 including the badminton clamp + shipping. I spent approximately $650 on this machine.

    I just don't think it's designed for badminton because the support is weak. Rating from the USRSA (United States Racquet Stringer Association @ www.usrsa.com) is very-very low on their machines. If you are serious, join the USRSA. Get the Stringing Machine reviews, I believe it's around $20-$30.

    I suggest that you talk to the others and the vendor to find the right machine. It's a big investment. Don't jump on it as we did just because of the price. Expensive and fragile racquets is on the line.

    Good luck!
