    It will be a great opportunity to film:
    1) Protech 8 in action
    2) How you string rackets using the Haribito Pro Pattern (with your subtle touches to minimize hard weaves)

    15-20 minute video right?

    Or it should be a 2 part video...one of just the machine...and 2 of you stringing a racket with the machine. Want me to bring my Wise electronic tension calibrator just to verify the tension being pulled too?

    Whoa - this is getting intense!

    Maybe I can bring this to a local tournament (maybe Ryerson open) and we can check it out. My condo is a mess and the background is going to look terrible!!! lol

    What camera do you have?
    I can usually string the racquet with that pattern in about 20 minutes (including pre-weaving the racquet). I think the fastest time is about 17 minutes with full 25% pre-stretching (I think a little faster without it). This was all done on the Gamma 6004 + Wise 2086. TIME IS MONEY!

    our eyes will be on the machine and the racket. we will ignore the dirty laundry in the background.

    I have a Sony DSC-HX10V point and shoot with a tripod. it can shoot HD video. Should be sufficient enough for youtube videos. I've used it to record badminton matches before.

    Don't worry..i'll make sure i don't capture anything in the background.
    Yes...time is money...and the money...will go to something bigger right... >wink< >wink<
