Just an observation is all.
    If only it was just about not providing proper solutions...

    @mater , It doesn't seem so. The MBFS-10 has a much longer neck and I believe is suitable for the larger machines like the 6004. The MBFS-11 fits the progression 602 (and I'm assuming x-6 as well) and has 2 models. 1 of them is 57mm from when the gamma side supports used to be L shaped. The new model is 63mm as the new V shaped side supports increases the mounted height of the racket.

    Please see post #29 as it has a picture of both versions of MBFS-11

    It never hurts to ask, though I'm not sure it would fit your old L shaped supports.

    Just strung a racket with the new taller 12 o'clock support that Gamma sent me. It works perfectly.

    bobbinbette, I'm thinking about getting the Gamma progression ii 602 also. You're ok without the fixed clamps? There's a big jump in price for the fixed clamps from my local retailer. I'm not sure if it's worth it either. Did you have to purchase any other tools?

    hello Rolo7. I have no issues with flying clamps (can't comment on fixed clamps as I've never used them before). They don't slip as long as you have good quality clamps (hi-qua, yonex, mbs) and maintain them regularly (I clean the teeth with isopropyl alcohol every 10-20 stringjobs).

    Cool, thank you for answering. So I guess I should find some good clamps to go with this machine.
