    Default bUYING A STRINGING MACHINE

    Hi everybody!
    i have been reading all your guy´s memo and I wonder why nobody is concerning buying a electronical stringing machine, I have also checked eagnas page and the price aint that bad as manual machine.
    If I like to buy a machine I have been checkin out Flex722e for 349USD. plus badminton clamps of course
    I play most badminton and sometimes squash and Tennis, Is this a good choice of first machine? if not please tell me which one is better choice ?
    I prefer an electronic, cause of the price almost the same. and the price level will be like this one , cause I might have to pay almost the same to send it to Sweden

    would like to hear your proffesional oppinoin ! thanx

    reliability is another issue
    drop-weight is simpler than crank, which is simpler than electric, which is simpler than electronic.

    One option is to start with a crank machine. Afterwards you could get an add-odd electronic tension head which attaches to the bar. then if something goes wrong with it you can return to the crank mechanism.


    P.S.
    I don't think many of us are professional stringers.

    Haha okay then I am in the right area since I am a rookie in stringing.
    Well thanx for your advice, it was a good alternative to start with.
    Now I know how I should start, Thanx Buddy

    Yeah, Neil said is correct. You can purchase an electronic tensioner unit and fit it to the bar. Check it out www.tennishead.com and download the movie!

    Dang! That TennisHead 2086 is BALLAR! I'm seriously thinking about buying one. No more calibrating.

    Should contact the manufacturer to make sure the unit can string very low tension: ie, 20 lbs.

    Oh, be careful and do lots of asking at the tennis forum. Or ask people in the local tennis clubs.

    After further thought, skip. If I do want or eventually need a BALLAR stringing machine, I'll just get the ES5Pro.

    Well, this should halt the flow of drool a little. The existing batch of Sensor machines have a problem with---I'm not too certain exactly which part---springs in the clamp locking base or something like that. Babolat's been busy keeping all Sensor customers well-supplied with springs as I understand, and they're redesigning (have already redesigned?) the defective part for the next production batch.

    It's just one of those growing pains issues. Even the venerable Star 3 had a few.
