6mm difference between stringing machines
I have something to share with you.
My first stringing machine was the st-250
With the st-250 i always thought my rackets where a little wide-headed.Also when i was doing crosses i would have to tighten the side supports often as they become just a little loose. I went to the store with my finished rackets and they told me there was nothing wrong with my stringjobs. But i could convince them to replace the side supports with some new ones. But after that i still had the same problem. But after a year i bought a pro's pro challenger 1 because although i know it isnt the best quality stringing machine the side supports looked very strong to me. Well i have 2 arcs10. So i strung one arc10 with the challenger I and it was really a big difference. I measured the frames of both arc10.
The arc10 strung by st-250: 203 mm
The arc10 strung by challenger 197 mm
Very big difference. Now my rackets are looking very nice and just right!
I don't think pro's pro are the best stringing machines but i am glad they have good sidesupports.
Next time i buy gamma if i could find one in holland!

Of course the Challenger is gonna make a big difference on your racket's shape compared to the ST-250.
First, Eagnas machines are terribly made and of sub par quality.
Second, the ST-250 doesn't have a suspension mounting system and the challenger does. Imo, it is a critical feature for any stringing machine. It makes a huge difference.

Very much so Yan.v the st-250 is very disapointing. Further more i think the dropweight system delivers a far better stringjob imho than a crank. Crank way faster tough
but.... isnt the challenger also eagnas crafted ?
