Gamma X6-FC or 602FC
I am currently debating between two stringing machines, the Gamma X6-FC and the 602FC. Does anyone have any first hand experience or recommends one over the other? Machines in the similar price range that you would like to suggest as better choices are welcome!

Gamma makes good machines, but if u buy from States, all other costs add up a lot, especially shipping fee, (cuz it's heavy) then, brokerage.....
Yan. recommended this beauty for little more, free shipping, and better quality to me.

Indeed, Spinfire machines are a good choice in Canada. If you really want to choose between those two though, just take the one you can get cheaper because they are essentially the same machine.
Or just come see me and I'll string your rackets

Of course we do! Well kind of. We've played against each other and we have mutual friends in the circuit.

Yup! Thats the place, I remember now.
Anyways, if you need any other advice I'll be happy to help. I went to the process of buying and comparing machines multiple times and have come to know the brands and machines pretty well.

For $10 more, get the X6-FC...and put a wise on it later on.
I'm sure you know who I am by now...lol.
Chances are, it will come with the black Tennis clamps and not the nice universal clamps. So you'll have to factor in a new pair of 12mm fixed clamps for badminton.

I have the 602FC and it does a fine job, you can also get a wise on that machine as well. The black tennis clamps are fine for badminton string jobs because it will not affect the mains but during cross stringing you gotta move the mains around, but it shouldn't be a problem since you have already done the mains(4knots).
I was wondering what is the difference between a X6-FC and a 602FC

Hmm when I was talking to the rep he told me these were the main differences between the two. He basically told me to get the regular 602 since having to open the drawer on the Xstringer can be a pain. I have only ever owned the 602 so I can't confirm about the Xstringer, I've browsed the manual though.
Main thing is they are pretty much the same machine.

Strong, light-weight aluminum extrusion base with built-in tool tray and drawer"
My college bought a X-Es a couple years ago and it's pretty much the same except with an electronic tensionner, it has a small open area for the tools, no drawer. I know someone that had one too and I didnt notice a drawer!
