    Master Jerby, I returned the Opus for a full refund. I have to wait for a month for the proper side supports to arrive but I can't wait that long.

    Babolat Star 5 starts at CAD6,000 before taxes. Retail shops get the badminton kit for free but private stringers like myself has to cough out CAD600 for it!!!

    Looks good for distortionless stringing of badminton racquets.

    Hey Pete,

    I was just wondering if you looked into the Gamma machines. They look so sweet. They also can adjust tension in 0.1 increments. I still think a tennis/badminton machine is the better way to go.

    I prefer side supports that are non-ajustable like the Exthree AM-600, Gosen's big machines and Babolats. After the LF experience, I really want to spend less time adjusting knobs.

    As for repull topic we touched on earlier, load cell technology used in older Gamma and the Opus are very sensitive at 0.20 to 0.25 lb. So, the sensitivity is getting there .

    No doubt there is a much bigger market for the tennis/badminton machine. However, I like something that has head and throat clamp down for badminton.

    Sorry to bring back an old thread. Pete, I have a question for you. Do you remember where the machine was shipped from? I read somewhere that they have an office in Toronto, Canada and was wondering if that was where they ship from. If so, that would be great news for me. I'm looking at some Silent Partner machines. So how was stringing on this machine anyways even though you didn't have the proper badminton mounting system.

    The machine was shipped from the GTA.

    It's very solid and built for tennis mainly. The 0.1 lb increment is a very nice feature to have.

    Although it was mainly built for tennis, how was it for stringing badminton? Did you have any troubles at all? Do you think they would let me go to their office to buy the machine? This way I could save a lot on shipping as I only live about 10 minutes away from them.

    During these recessional times, I don't think they would turn down anyone willing to go in and pick up the equipment themselves!!

    Perhaps just call them to be sure?
    Like Master Pete has posted...

    Make sure to get those badminton supports added, they look really sweet, and don't block the grommet holes.

    Keep us updated on this. It is common interest for all the locals who want to get a machine but are deterred by the punishing shipping cost.
