Hi all, I have read a few threads in this section and have decided to get a drop-weight machine because of its accuracy in tensioning and minimal calibration. Also with a budget £350-£400 (Machine + tools), anything more is stretching it. I was hoping this would get me everything I need to start stringing. I have no intention to purchase a WISE. On WDStrings, I have come across the premium stringer 3600, and the Challenger models 1 and 2, but am towards the premium stringer 3600 atm. I have the following questions based on what I've read elsewhere on this forum: 1. Which of the following tools are necessary and which are optional: My opinion are as follows: What is the 5-prong dual clamp mentioned somewhere? Flying clamps - Yonex x2 and MBS clamps x2 or Hi Qua x2? (one set for the cross, and another for the mains, can't remember which) String Cutter and pliers - Necessary Load Spreader - Necessary Badminton Awl -Optional? Starting clamp - Optional? String Mover - Optional? Michal's racket support thingy? - Posters have recommended this... 2. Which of the above three models do you recommend? 3. Have I missed anything?
