Should I upgrade to electronic?
Hi, as I may already have pointed out in another thread, I'm considering upgrading to an electronic stringing system. I'm currently using a Klippermate m140 and whilst it does its job for the most part, I am uncomfortable with the racket "warp" when I'm stringing - even at tensions ~26lbs. I assume that 6-point mount/support will help with this as the m140 is only 2-point.
The only thing holding me back, is of course $. And I live Down Under so anything I will have to factor in a considerable amount of shipping costs.
Here are the options I have in mind:
Option A - Pro's Pro Shuttle Express + Wise 2086
Option B - Pro's Pro Challenger II + Wise 2086 + Michal's custom-made supports
Option C - Pro's Pro TX700 + Michal's custom-made supports
Option D - Stick with the m140
Option E - Quit stringing altogether to avoid the dilemma (this is a joke)
Anyone have any input? Feel free to suggest other options too.

Just ordered myself a Pro's Pro XP Plus from RacquetDepot UK. Plus a WISE2086 from GLP Sports HK. Total outlay of about 1400USD including badminton fixed clamps for the machine etc. Ouch! Considerably more than what I was initially prepared to spend but I decided that this set-up will be much better than my m140.
Need to string at least 1-2 rackets per week to make back my money in 1.5years!

Guess it's too late to ask the question. I've used M140 for over 10 years, and many jobs are 26+. I do not see the "wrap" issue, though...
