Adidas, Victor and Alpha machines are all made by the Exthree/Poreex.
as far as the diablo, i think they haven't figured out how to efficiently put a diablo, a riser and the gripper into one unit.

Since you have tried both the ProTech and the Adidas machines, may I ask you this ultimate question kwun. Would you choose the ProTech or the Adidas, assuming you had to choose, knowing that the ProTech costs a little less than double the Adidas ?

Big disappointment, Adidas machines warranty is only 1 year
Back to square one!

hm... cost of Protech is way up there. but even if i have $10k spare, i think i will get a Adidas. really the only thing that i think Protech has that completely trumps the Adidas are the clamps. for $5k more, i don't think the clamps are worth that much. besides, i vaguely remember we can buy those Toyo clamps separately with the same shaft.
that will leave me another $4k spare. that's a lot of rackets.
another thing i don't like is that the Protech is really a tennis machine. the portions and string distances are too big for badminton. not to say that the Adidas is compact, but as a whole package, the Adidas seems more proportional for badminton.

If the warranty was the same as other stringing machine brands, I think I'd be all over it. But I wouldn't want to have to spend a lot of money on a machine that isn't yet profitable for repairs, and I think it'd take a more than one year to cover the cost of the machine with the amount of rackets I string per year.

If you have less budget, I think you should look at Alpha machines like the Alpha Ghost.
