-= AEF Colola II Tabletop String machine =-
I just got my new machine from AEF, attached with WISE 2086.
AEF quality is not as good as YouStar machine from Taiwan but it's much better than Eagnus machines. One said that AEF is not manufacturer but part assembler. I purchased 7 machines directly from AEF with my club members so there are 7 exact machines in S.Korea for now. Just strung my Apacs Stern 300 with Zymax 62. The machine is awesome but clamp is not as good as Youstar clamp. Probably need to purchase the one Panda use, WA3342 Dual clamp from W & D strings.

And since they become Wise2086 partner in China, their market sales even much better and growing.
AEF is not assembler, they are manufacturer, and their quality is much better than Eagnas.
I can say this coz I have AEF machines as well as Eagnas machine.

That's a wicked turntable - looks to be the same as Eagnas Comet 11 except one tower is fixed. Base clamps are interesting as well - Prince button-release mixed with the standard Eagnas arrangement.

to have it upgrade to this based-clamp, it is needed to add US$ 25 per machine

Thank you so much to maa2003's report!
Actually, it would be great for AEF to manufacture badminton specific shoulder supports that are bolted directly to the metal swing arms instead of going over the existing tennis shoulder supports. Just a wish . . .

Today I strung my 4th racket with New Zymax 67.
The machine is excellent that it moves quick and stable. The side support-arms are holding rackets as it is and does not allow racket to extend outerward. I am not sure what kind of plastic AEF used for the racket tongs(I don't know exact name for it but I am sure you know what I meant). They are hard but there is bit of cushioning.
Fixed clamps. I tried tennis clamp and badminton clamps for badminton strings. Definitely badminton clamps are much better but one can use tennis clamp. It still could grip the 0.62mm zymax 62 up to 30lbs. It did not slide at all. Badmtion fixed clamps are great. They do not loose the string nor slip the string. Stays firm and strong. I probably need to purchase spring for the fixed clamps.
Because it's table-top machine weighing 32kg, once it is installed I do not wish to move it to another location.
Overall, I am very satisfied for the machine and AEF made such a great machine. As I stringing more rackets I am liking it more than any other machines I tried. As you can see in the picture, the side clamps are great. I am not sure how different from the ES-Pro but I am sure for the price you paying, you will be more than happy.
I got Yonex bag that could fit this huge string machine. I didn't intend to purchase such a huge bag but it's so huge. Does anyone know why Yonex makes such a hugh bag? Well, it was only $22.00 so I didn't check the size and bought it.

how much does the machine cost ?

The machine look very sturdy. A set of badminton specific shoulder supports will help further in reducing distortion. From the last photo, one can see how the frame getting yanked outward. A very steep angled V shoulder support may support the framer better.

The price that I got was for more than 10pcs so it was cheaper than purchasing just one piece. But the tariff was very high that it was US$800. Plus I needed to pay inland shipping as well. So the price is vary depends where you get the machine. China is just beside S.Korea yet the shipping wasn't so cheap. Unless I bring them in a container quantity.
As Youstar sells lower model of their string machine at US$2300.00 in S.Korea. AEF is selling very good price. I believe Carol can assist you for the price.
