New Machine, and Jobs done
I finally got my Eagnas Combo-710 stringing machine. My first attempt was on my GF's racket :P I made few mistakes but she doesn t used it anymore.
My second try was on a new purchase, the APACS Virtuoso Performance, I stringed it with BG66UM with a tension of 26hx24v. I used the official Victor 72 holes pattern with pro parnell knot and pre stretched manually.
The result is not perfect, I v got too much tension due to some issue with the swivel clamp base. at the end my tension was 27hx25v
My third attempt was for my tournament racket, the Victor BRS-LHI, I also used BG66UM but with a lower tension 25hx24v and the same technique than the previous racket.
I v got a better result with a tension close to what I set. 26hx24v. I am very happy with this result but it took me lot of time >3hours
Q?: I have an issue with my swivel clamps, after I clamped and when i am releasing the tension rod, my clamps are moving toward the string tension by 2 or 3 mm. I have no idea how much tension I am loosing but this doesn't seen right. Any idea?
Also do you customize your racket with home made stencil?

Also, you can remove the yellow pads from the 12/6 supports if you are using load spreaders.

I also forget to say, I have a problem with the string gripper when i use small gauge like BG66um (0.65mm). It loose grip when i put the tension rod down, I had to put a piece of paper/cardboard to get a grip on it.
I you had similar pb can you tell me what was your solution please.
Thank u for your help.

@Edlui88, thx for the tips, I do the same. So it is not specific to my machine, good to know.
I think for this price it is quite good, I will make a complete review + article (tips, things to avoid, ..) on my blog in a few weeks.
So it is fun, I am eager to try some new pattern/string/tension for all my rackets.
