Seriously, you should changing to the premium head plates. The head plate that you have will cause problems in the future. It doesn't have a cental support.

Thanks Pete, I will probably have one of those on my machine very soon since you recommend it.
I haven't been keeping up, but I can tell there's some sort of inside joke on the badminton clamps. I didn't think there were any, perhaps this is why you're so frustrated with Laserfibre?

is there any single action fixed clamp made for badminton?
I've seen some for tennis though.

Yeah, you are looking at my machine . Stringway's single-action fixed clamps don't work well without my mods.

Yeah, there are two types that I know of. One is the Prince Neos 1000 and the other is Babolat Sensor and Sensor Expert.

I remember now. Eagnas and HiQua have a model(s) that have similar fixed clamps as the Prince Neos 1000. However, reputation and warranty are another thing with those brands.

I am not talking about he the teeth of the fixed clamps. I am talking about the mechanism of the single-action clamps.

So why do you have 6 Yonex flying clamps again? =P

I am talking about the clamp base slipping without those Pony clamps. check my original posts.

dang..i joined this conversation way too late..>yawn< soo tired. Any ways, congrats to getting this opportunity. A word of caution...the laserfibre machines are relatively slow to string on and you may want to consider purchasing a crank machine...I average 1.5 hrs per racket on my modified MS200TT (pics of my machine are in Pete's thread). I don't know what your time may be but i'm guessing it's at least an hour and 15 min.
so far in november i've strung about 15 rackets and it can get pretty time consuming. I work full time and play badminton 3 times a week and sometimes need to make time to string rackets. For me I really want to just string rackets as a hobby and not as a second job... my increase in stringing more rackets lately is directly related to the fact that our previous stringer (which is very good i may say) left our club to join Lee's.
I'm sure the reasons I bought the LF machine are fairly similar to yours and Petes: Constant pull, consistent tension, low maintenance...
if it's about stringing rackets quickly then crank or electronic are the way to go where crank most often then not is the more affordable solution. Good luck!

Yeah Howie, Fishmilk can only string so many racquets a week with the LaserFibre drop weight.
In the long-term, a crank or electronic machine is the way to go for high-volume stringing.

This all reminds me of what I learned from an auto teacher. When you buy a car, you look for aesthetics, speed, and price. You get to choose two.
When you look for a machine, you look for quality, speed, and price. You get to choose two as well.
I really don't want to sacrifice the quality of my string jobs, but I need to speed it up. Only way is an electronic, but a reputable one is out of my budget.
