    Default reference price for stringing machines

    Hi all, I am planning to upgrade my gamma progression 602ii fc either with a wise tension head which is +600cad ~ or buy a completely new electronic machibe. I've worked as a stringer before and once you use electronic you can't go back. At my previous workplace there was the victor machine( I do not know the model but around 4000$) and a lining machine. I liked the lining one much more in terms of tensioning as well as the mounting system.

    I was wondering where can you get these high end machines? Do I need to contact the brand or manufacturer directly? Also what machines do you guys prefer? I know there are many out there like the ghost and etc. It would he awesome if you can provide an avg price for it too.

    Contact Mark Gonzales, good machine


    If you want the best I know someone who has a brand new Stringing machine Model 8 same as Yonex Protech 8, Yonex machine $8500ish, can maybe do $7800 plush shipping for his

    Keep in mind you get what you pay for, a cheap adaptor, add on can not compare to a solid machine built for a specific purpose. The ghost keep in mind is going to produce a better string job than a pieced out machine, but the Model 8 is solid metal, no movement on tray table, Toyozouki machines have been at the last 2 Olympics for a reason, and in 2012 was at both Badminton and Tennis events. Do the math, if you string a lot I would go with something you can invest in, and make a reputation for yourself. For me its a no brainer, I string a lot, people expect the best from me, in my 1 man shop I am using Yonex Protech 5 and Toyozouki Model 8 (Yonex Protech 8) and home using Yonex ES5 Pro which I got in 2006 and is still to this day a solid machine.

    How many rackets you string a month/year?
    What is your labor fee?
    Get a bank loan and make an investment!! gonna pay off in the long run if you love to string
