    Congrats on your nice Machine!
    Do you clamps fit badminton string? Did they come with the Gamma machine?

    Thanks!

    Any advice, words of wisdom ? ( Go for it ? ), might go for WISE couple of months ( or month) later.

    Also can you list out any other accessories you bought for this configuration

    1. Load Spreader (At 12' clock position, saw in one of Kwun's video) any one ? where to get this ?
    2. Flying Clamps (What and where to buy ?)

    My first post and long time guest on BC ! Thanks in advance for any help!!
    I have a friend in San Diego who might get rid of his machine, he wants to upgrade to ES5 Protech.

    Dang, that's tasty - straight rails, automatic clamp bases, moveable support towers... ticks every box for me.

    when it engages the pull. i am not sure at what point it start engaging the brake. need to play around with it to see.

    this is a feature in many of the Exthree OEM machines. Victor, Adidas and the Alpha Ghost has it.

    Tbh, I'd prefer one that didn't decide for itself when the string was straight... wonder it if can be overridden...

    What kind of machine does he have? I may be interested. I've been following threads on Gamma 6004 + Wise and electronic stringing machines. Been waiting for a few months for a good used stringing machine but to no avail.....

    Previous post was @kakinami ;

    My budget is $2k for new machine and around $1k for decent used; I'm leveraging people's experience to get something comparable to Gamma+wise or better.

    is there anyone who owns one on BC that can comment on the Ghost? With tax it would be a hard stunt to pull off without consequences The wife lurks nearby.

    It does look like it now has badminton adjustments since it was first introduced.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
