    Default Custom Design Stringing Machine from Eagnas

    Does Eagnas really make custom-made stringing machine to the buyer's specification? What if I just want one? The buyer just want one badminton specific machine with the Easy-3's mounting system but the swivel clamps and turnable are in stainless steel. The turntable is the usual two track one.

    I did ask them more than a year ago for a 2-swivel or 2-fixed clamp Easy-3 badminton-only stringing machine and they say no. Perhaps if you make them an offer they cannot refuse they may be tempted. Another alternative is to look at the high end Babolat machine but with the optional accessories for badminton stringing like side arm supports and the two posts that are designed specificall for badminton. But these are options which you have to pay extra.

    The Babolat Sensor and Sensor Expert use four add on side-arm supports and two badminton billiards. Other than that, there is nothing special about them except for the outrageous price. Yeah, the constant pull and excellent clamps are nice too.

    Going through Eagnas's long list of stringing machines, I notice the ARC-Top 21. It has head and throat clamp down, plus adjustable external supports! And notice the external supports have multiple mounting holes. Just wonder if the Easy-3's C clamps can fit into those holes? And yesssss, it get a very nice turntable with 2 swivel clamps!!!

    No, it will not fit. The Easy-3 "C" support is an assembly of male/female sliding (a bit like a drawer) contraption, one fixed and one free, with the "C" clamp screwed down through this assembly with a knob at the bottom. The "C" clamp has a shaft with spring that goes through the tightening assembly.
    Also, the holes nearer the throat on the arms of the AR-Top 21, when shortened to mount a badminton frame, will be unusable as they will go into the inner side of the racquet frame, if you want the supports to be at near grommets #11 or #12. However, this is academic as the "C" clamps cannot be transplanted to the AR-Top 21.

    Yeah, a metal machinist is required to retrofit the AR-Top 21 to accept the "C" clamps from the Easy-3. In the end, no single machine is perfect .

    I thought you already have a stringing machine. Mind you, a 6-point machine like the Easy-3 is a slow machine, with the tight four side supports trying their best to slow you down. You won't make a living with this machine.

    Yeah, I am just gathering information. And please enlighten everyone here how the tight four side supports try their best to slow you down? I thought you like them tight and secured .

    Did you talk to Eagnas in Shenzhen or in Taiwan or both?

    Can the Easy-3's mounting arms and posts be separated from the turntable bar? Do Eagnas sell individual stringing machine components (guess not)?

    I would say the mount on ST-250 is much better than the ones on ST-200/Easy-3

    Eagnas does sell certain components. For example, I bought a set of single action clamps from them with the intention of making a glide bar system for the flex740. However, they will not support hardware that is not made for the machine it is intended to go on and the items are not returnable. At least that was what they told me when I called them to order the clamps.

    Did you have any success with the conversion? Can you post pictures of the new single-action clamps, bars and cradle?

    But the side supports do not have spring-loaded clamps.

    Looks can be deceiving too, until you actually try them.

    No, the Easy-3 arms are fixed. The "C" mounts or clamps at the end of the arms can be adjusted by a sliding action to handle different racquet widths. They sell stringing tools and will replace parts free of charge but you pay for the return courier costs.
    I have talked to Eagnas in both Taiwan and Shenzhen but I have difficulty with my mandarin.
    The Easy-3 is similar to the ELF. Also the Easy-2 is the same as the ELF-1, and both are similar to the Easy-3 except that the former are smaller because they are drop-weight machines with tension scales upto the mid 30lbs, and presumably more accurate. There are also two similar drop-weight machines, Easy-1 and ELF-2 but these two have no swivel clamp.
    The ST-250 is a slightly different machine, using supports that brace inwards like those V-shaped or K supports. I have another machine, an Exthree, with similar supports. Personally, I prefer the "C" supports or clamps to the V-shaped ones.
    6-point machines are slow because the 4 side supports, especially those on the Easy-3, get in your way. Even using dental floss can be a hassle. Pre-stringing would be better with this machine.
