    How accurate is the tensioner compared to the WISE? Does it continue to pull after the beep?

    That's one sweet machine :D. It looks like it's been pimped up Gangnam Style :cool: with all those signatures.

    Let me know where to get the mystical 991. Other than the designation for the seventh generation of 911... :0

    Looks really sweet with all the autographs and flags. I bet stringing with it would be a real pleasure :)

    I hardly drink anymore. So having 2 kidneys is kinda redundant. So 1 kidney for 1 Yonex Protech 8. Sounds like a fair deal. Bonus is I lose a pound of weight. :p

    Beautiful machine, but how do you increase or decrease the tension setting? Is it that chrome button? One button for all the features?

    you just have to think "twenty five pounds".... and then automagically, it will set it.

    I'd try thinking "string racket for me while I read the paper."
