As far as I know, we (Canada) has to order the machine from US. Just check the stringing machine web site in BC - stringing technique. The ATS's entry level machine can be used for badminton/tennis/squash rackets.

3. <http://www.gammasports.com> -> If my memory serves me right, they had a representative in Canada. Not sure now.
Contact them and ask. You can always order from the US.

This is probably the best time to order a stringing machine from the US because the CAD $ is so strong (regardless of duty & import fees).
Right now I'm awaiting my order for a Laserfibre MS200 w/o fixed clamps.
I've already purchased and received from the US the following:
-1 Eagnas starting clamp and grommet remover
-4 Hi-Qua Fly Clamps
The difference between the dollars are not back breaking.
Machines that are commonly owned by forum members have been:
-the Klippermate (great value machine) http://www.klipperusa.com/products/p...hp?catnum=M140
-a variety of eagnas machines
Think about it.

Yes..CAD$ is strong lately. I just order one from Eagnas and should be here next week. We probably will not get another chance like that in the future so take advantage of it to buy other things like strings/rackets/birdies etc.

wow thanx for the help guys! im just wondering what is the price of the dropweight ones from alpha? i am considering the klipper one tho, good price.!

I am thinking about selling mine. I haven't used it in many years. It's a drop weight table top version made by RSL. It's in mint condition with all the accessories and manual. Can do tennis, squash and badminton raquets. If interested, let me know and I'll consider selling it (I'll have to think about a price).

adn just wondering how many lbs does it do? and does it come with a manual cuz i have never stringed racket myself before! oh and the difference between the racket stringer 145$$$ and the BADMINTon stringer for 155, wouldnt it be better to buy the racket stringer cuz i can string all kinds of rackets instead of just badminton?

oh okay thanx! and when i wanted to buy it it said 53 dollar shipping, but then in the total it is only 155 does that mean it is free shipping?

I'm seriously considering getting a stringer as well and I am in canada too. I've been looking at the sptennis one
which is a drop weight and does tennis rackets. I contacted the company and they ship from canada. But to handle badminton rackets you have to buy a kit for 100 dollars. So the total was $405.xx CAD
I was looking at this one because it can do tennis and badminton rackets (with kit) and it has a 6 point mounting system. I had let a guy with a 2 point mount string my racket and he put a minor dent in the head.
The cheapest is the Klippermate but the base model can only do badminton and it's only a 2 point mount and it kind of looks flimsy.
Any thoughts or suggestions?

Gamma Progression II 602
I had Gamma Progression II 602 from ats sports.
It works very well. It will do both tennis and badminton.
But you need a starting clamp and 2-4 badminton clamps. (my suggestion is Hi-Qua flying clamp)
If you are going to buy items from US, make sure you are not using UPS.
Ask for USPS.

does anyone have any experience with the sptennis machines? they are listed in the stringingmachine thread but everyone seems to have other models. I'm having second thoughts about this sptennis one.
