    Default Stringing Machine

    Hi,
    I've been thinking alot lately and I've finally come to a conclusion that I'll purchase a stringing machine.

    Now, the question is which one?
    I'd like to purchase a decent one (not a cheap one that I'll have to change after a while)

    I would like to hear some of your suggestion first.
    like...which model of which company...etc.

    Thanks a lot

    Brian

    How often you will string? What's ur usual tension range? If say, no more than 2 per day, and 25lb or below, a decent 2 point drop weight machine can very well handle the job. This type of machine costs between US$100-200 range, but you might need to consider the extra shipping / duty charges.

    well... I initially wanted to get an Eagnas... but after reading several threads... apparently ... they are good for their prices but so so for their quality and are not precise.... is that really true? or does it depend on the stringer... I'm looking into purchasing something of good quality ... to string from about 22lbs to 28 lbs...

    any suggestions to which brand ?

    Ok... I've read more and apparently both the Eagnas ST200 and EASY 3 are pretty good models... which one would you guys recommend because they both seem to be within acceptable price range for me... if you guys have any other suggestions, feel free to tell me

    thanks

    Make sure count in S&H (machine is heavy) and possible duty (unless shopping within CAN) charges as well.

    Ok... so the main difference between the ST200 and the SHUTTLE EXPRESS is the number of mounting points?

    ST200 : 6 mounting point system
    Shuttle Express : 4 points mounting arms

    From previous threads, apparently 6 points is better... but I also read many good comments for the Shuttle Express... so what would be the main reason for choosing? the shuttle express is also more expensive compared to the EAGNAS, is there that much of differences? quality wise

    The Prince Neo 1000 is a very good 4-point spring tention machine. It has about over a $1000 price tag for this machine. The local store which I go get my rackets stringed up, uses this machine mainly for badminton.

    Nope, but if you want it to consider it, do as you wish. The machine is very reliable. You could look up the reviews as well.

    No, not true, as both the Eagnas ST200 and the Shuttle Express are 6-points machines. However both machines are suspension mounting machines, meaning that the two polar points do not play any part in securing the racquet and preventing it from distortion.
    The Eagnas ST-250 is identical to the Shuttle Express but heavier and more solid. The ST-200 has 'C' mounts instead of V-shaped mounts. 'C' mounts are better in preventing distortion from extremely high tensions but they are slower than the ST-200 and Shuttle Express because their 'C' mounts get in the way that V-shaped mounts don't.
    Also the Shuttle Express's two legs do get a bit loose from the constant dismantling. I used to own a Shuttle Express but gave it away.

    So which stringing machine are you using now?

    A qualified yes, provided it is not much more expensive than the Shuttle Express and that portability is not required. The Shuttle Express and the ST-250 are badminton-only machines (a very good thing) and are almost 99% similar in the important parts that are required for stringing. The Shuttle Express is , however, lighter because it is built for easy assembling and dismantling, which is great if you want to take it to a badminton venue to do stringing on the spot.
    However, both machines come with only two floating clamps, which are not good enough for high tension stringing or even high quality low tension stringing, and neither machine comes with a starting clamp, which is necessary for these two machines.
    Please note that the V-shaped supports of both machines will still distort, albeit slightly, if strung to very high tensions. You don't get this problem with the more messy ST-200 or Easy-3 with their 'C' mounts. This is because the V-shaped supports only prevent outward distortions but not inwards. The 'C' mounts or supports prevent distortion both ways but are are pain sometimes when they get in your way.
