    Default new Yonex ES5Protech stringing machine

    i wish i can prefix the title with "my", but it is not mine...

    i dropped by SynergyBadminton and saw they just got a new toy. a brand new Yonex ES5Protech that they got to replace the old one that was on loan from Yonex. this one looks a bit different with a copper color clamp base and a set of badminton clamp with 4 teeth instead of the regular 5. what is striking is the red clamp handles and now the clamps have their own serial numbers!

    a awesome sexy looking machine that is unfortunately too expensive for us mortals to own, so we will just drool on the photos:

    Kwun, this is just cruel. Why don't you take a picture of yourself in a Veyron Supersports while you're at it?:P

    Serial number seems like overkill - who's going to be able to clone the great ES5?!

    The clamps look awesome. Overall the machine looks the same as the previous machine Alan was using, just with a different color scheme and yes the serials on the clamps.

    Victor's fixed clamps are very similar and also very nice. They are dual action clamps that have the push button release for the lock, which is also unlocked when you drop the clamp back down. My cone lock clamps already pale in comparison to regular spring assisted clamps.

    I'll just sell one of my livers... I can get by with one...

    The YY clamps have a really nice "notchy" action, and the clamp bases are the best non-fancy ones I've ever tried. (The "non-fancy" qualifier means I haven't had a go of the Bab Sensor or S. Expert yet.)

    I believe you mean kidney, not liver. Otherwise, I'd assume you're able to drink everyone under the table with those 2 livers of yours. I wish I had a spare liver to sell...
