    Also - couple things you want to consider:

    Arm mounts all move individually - makes it a little more difficult to mount racquet as there could be some inconsistencies with how far each arm is moved to touch the racquet.

    Load spreader - I would recommend getting one for the 12 o'clock

    Clamps base - the base clamps on these ones are terrible. Makes it very difficult to work with. I would upgrade them to a "easy" lock and unlock type. I forgot what they are called but Kwun has them in his badminton stringing videos on youtube (look up badminton central on youtube).

    Clamps - make sure the clamps are designed for badminton. Typically the machines come with a tennis specific clamp but perhaps Gamma has changed their clamps to the "universal" ones. I remember having to purchase those separately.

    Aside from those main points, I think it should be alright.

    I own a pimped out STII, you can see it in this very thread. I think the only thing that's not on it in the pictures is the Switch Action Cam Lock Clamp base.

    What you need to buy in order to adapt it for badminton is the Gamma badminton frame adapter for the 12 O'clock support, the badminton fixed clamps (WA3342 from Watdon are very good and cheaper than Gamma clamps (the Gamma ones are better though)) and the Gamma badminton side support adapters (or the custom made ones from Michal Chudek).

    Here's everything:

    You can contact the user Michal for his side supports too. Costs about 50-60$ shipped (iirc), which is a good price imo.

    If you need the GAMMA Badminton Frame Support let me know. I have one laying around from my old machine.
