PRO'S PRO Electronic TX-700
Last week I bought Pro's Pro Shuttle Express, but I don't like it. It does seem very cheap, low quality and bad tensioning system which doesn't work for me. I was looking at this Pro's Pro TX-700... anyone knows anything about this? how good is it?
Please give me your advice, before I make another bad buy

TX700 has the same turntable, clamps and mounting system as all the other Pro's Pro machines, and it's excellent. The rotary tensioner... not sure about that one, but at least it's constant pull.

I have figured out now how to string with it, but I managed to break my first racket in the middle! the racket was new

Without seeing how you string, this is just my humble opinion. You should stick with what you have for now.
- Become familiar with the quirks of this unit and how to work-around them.
- If you are relatively new to stringing, focus on careful mounting, use of the flying clamps and tie-offs.
- Practice a consistent pull on the crank in terms of speed and tempo (time between each pull). It is with this that you can narrow the gap with constant pull/drop units.
I have one. The machine is on the lower cost scale with "ok" quality and I wouldn't mind a fancier machine but it is more than enough for weekly stringing. Improvements to my string jobs will still come from honing technique.

i also have a pro's pro tx 700 .....its a good unit.....the fixed clamps are ok....i use them to start off the mains and crosses but then i use yonex fly clamps because its easier and quicker and i have strung up to 30lbs with no slip from them. The unit is heavy.....and it is a constant pull....i have checked this by releasing a clamp once it is tightened and the unit begins to pull tension again....the accuracy of the constant pull is where i think the machine could improve because i think the tension needs to drop at least 0.5lb before it tightens it again. I have strung about 15 rackets with this machine and i have been happy with how it has performed up to now. Saying all that i am saving up for a wise 2086 to attach...i have spoken to watdon and they have confirmed that they sell an adaptor plate to fit it

I found the same, the shuttle express is awful and wouldnt recommend anyone to buy it!

So the tensioner on the TX700 is NOT constant pull?
