    I know......it looks rock solid. I needed this like I needed another racquet....lol. anyhow, the seller was hesitant to sell it to me because I asked him to ship it to me. He had no idea how to disassemble it. I had to walk him through it, but I added $50 to his price to cover shipping and his time. Let's just say I couldn't resist a Gamma for 1/3 cost of a new one.......I'm happy

    The new ones are $800-$900 USD. And $1200 for the 6004 model. This is used and a few years old. :)

    I have one right now mounted on my Eagnas, so may order another one. Was going to string tennis racquets on this one for a while first. :D

    I was fortunate last year to be able to pick up a new GAMMA turntable from a 5003 SC last year, but it only had the 2 mount system. I called my buddies at GAMMA and they happened to have a set of posts and 6 point upgrade kit. Came with the lasted V-supports with plastic BADMINTON covers. Also had them add the load spreader supports for top and bottom at no charge..

    Since I already had a WISE tension head on my EAGNAS, I ordered the GAMMA Adaptor. To get 360 rotation, here's what I found out my hardware store a block away.....5/8 inch high. Should be enough to clear, but I bought two just in case.....just waiting on the adaptor to get here along with my new WATDON clamps :D

    It does and I think it should be adequate enough to also do badminton without the badminton covers. I'll have to test it to see if they are too big and get in the way... :p

    Got the Adaptor yesterday for my WISE for the GAMMA. Here it is. Turns out I had to use TWO couplings to raise it high enough for the 360 degree rotation. Also, look! NO SLANT on the tension head.

    Just strung 4 racquets..............I must say, this is almost a perfect machine.......I love it.

    Anyone have any Switch Action clamp bases??? That'll be the only upgrade I would consider.... :p
