    OK, now you have your hard on. Let me tell you the nicest thing of the machine. It is the tensioner head. It has sensor build in so you don't even need to think "Oh, this is tennis string, I need to release the screw. Oh, it is badminton string, I need to tighten the screw. Yes, it is a lot easier to adjust the height. The touch sensor on the tension head is lie Babalot Star5. Overall, I like it as evolution of Protech with nice to have.

    Same with Pro and Protech.
    The tension head pulls fast but slows down at last second, thought that was kewl. Anything silver on tension head activates tension head, with a touch, no springy buttons just a touch.

    How accurate is the tensioner compared to the WISE? Does it continue to pull after the beep?

    That's one sweet machine . It looks like it's been pimped up Gangnam Style with all those signatures.

    Are you trying to compare a Porsche 991 to a Honda Civic?

    Looks really sweet with all the autographs and flags. I bet stringing with it would be a real pleasure
