Pete, although it may look impressive, using 4 flying clamps on two rows of tensioned cross strings is not as good as using three or even as few as two flying clamps on three rows of tensioned cross strings.

Actually, they do obstruct inserting the flying clamps. I have to unscrew one and place it inward towards the throat.

Note: I start with 32 lbs for the cross and work with that tension until I pass the last main-cross-string intersection. Afterward, it's all plus full 10%.

Nice job! . Next time try 2 knots.

Thank you for the advice guys. BTW, I use a new technique to minimize tension loss during tie off. Will explain later with photos . . . Stay tune

indeed..I can't wait...my knotting still needs improving..

Yup, there it is! my own Stringway ML90 (click for hi-res).
So far I've strung 16 rackets (in three weeks), and I love it. The machine is really easy to use, and the tension system is great!
The string I bought are:
-Ashaway Micropower XL
-Hi-Qua BG-65 (B-696, but the print on the string actually says 'BG-65')
and some loose gosen packages (3x pro66 1x GS80)
I always use a around-the-world pattern. That way there are only two knots (minimal tension creep) and you will always string top-down (which is way better than bottom-up if you ask me).
The clamps I use are adjustable lever-clamps (no spring) which are adjustable to support any gauge, and hold tension very well.

Excellent review!!! The HiQua 696 isn't that great in terms of durability . If you are into stringing more than six racquets everyday, then go ahead use the 696.
Oh, you forgot to put small pieces of PU grip underneath the black clamps.
Pro 66 has amazing repulsion but doesn't last if you mishit.
Are those Eagnas flying clamps and stringing tools?
Looks like your last string job was 21 lbs?

Your HQ B-696 is printed? Both of mine are blank.

I didn't actually forgot the PU pieces, I just don't have any. Besides I doubt if it's necessary, because after 16 rackets none of them seem to be scratched.
The clamps are branded as 'arfaian', which produces the products for Pro's Pro, which are usually rebranded Eagnas. So probably, they can be traced back to Eagnas.
And yes, that job was around 20-22 lbs (which is allready above-average here...)

The 696 is very stretchy. I had to use three pulls to take out every slack. Just beware of that . . .
When you string the cross, make sure to use your left hand to pull on the string first and then drop the weight. You save one extra pull this way.
The PU grips are mainly for holding the racquet in place . . . The friction generated really help.
Your setup is good to 32 lbs .

32lbs, I doubt if I will string that high on a regular basis any time soon. Might give it a try though.. A friend of mine brought his old racket (a 'Level 3900'), he said he didn't mind if it would break. We decided that it was a good chance to see how really-high tensions would feel. We started at 13kg (28.66009lbs.) for mains and crosses. No problem whatsoever, the racket was still perfectly in shape, and it didn't break while playing with it. Too bad I didn't play with it... Next stop, 14 kg (~31lbs). We'll keep experimenting untill the racket breaks.
After I've strung about 25-30 rackets, I should have gathered enough money to buy a set of fixed badminton-clamps they cost around €240 (which will be around $300??). So yes, they are definitely available!
