I can already guess your review in one sentence...
...for the money, a good machine but can be better a la LSD mods.
P.S. Dang you for $20 in postage for 3 ounces worth of product! ... ... ...

Woot Woot!! New Toys!!!
I wonder if it comes in a little carrying case like the st-200?
Should be fun to assemble, and no fixed clamps getting in the way...
Helpful when you have chubby finger syndrome (edit: like me)

Sorry about the Z EXPRESS postage . Will make it up by more M(L) P(G) M(P) - LGP = la gentle panda - in the future .
Initial impression of the side supports is very positive. I just setup the turntable and put the NS-9K X to the test. The fit is very snug ! When I push and squeeze on various parts of the frame, it doesn't move! Pulling on the handle has the same effect. No more skin peeling and finger-joint damaging knobs to turn !!!

No Case though, but I really like the side supports. I will figure a way to install a glide-bar system like the one that Ryeung has. Can't wait for a Stringway tensioner to go with the ST-250 .

Also it seems the YY ST250 is like twice the price of the Eagnas ST250.
check out their website at http://www.eagnas.com/st250.html

What was important is getting to know the machine you have, and in my belief, it is important to produce consistent results each time. (eg. proper frame shape is maintained, string bed tension is consistent.
This helps avoid any conflicts whether stringing for yourself or friends, worst thing that can happen is stringing someone else's equipment in different ways, and end up damaging their property )
In terms of equipment, you will probably want to pick up an extra flying clamp or two.
The experts here on the forum have recommended Hiqua, YY, and Alpha flying clamps.
The Eagnas seems to come with a nice small toolset to get you up and running.
Umm... not too sure about the YY ST250, perhaps the 2 YY reps here can weigh in on the specifics.
I haven't read any reviews of the YY ST250, but you might want to try a search, and see if anything comes up.
Again, my postings were not made in any attempt to disparage the YY machine... I'm only posting on info I know.
Since I am not as knowledgeable;
Some of the other experts here might be able to give more input.
Edit: Forgot to mention... once you learn how to string a racquet... its like learning how to tie your own shoe... you wont forget; except maybe with tying knots

Ooo, *is very curious to know how the machine stands up to pete's expectation XD*

A couple other stringers here have modded their machines already, with added glide bars, and fixed clamps, which really help in tight areas, where flying clamps wont fit. (also speeds up the string job considerably in some cases)
Though, its really nice to have the fixed/swivel clamps around especially when starting off on the mains and finishing the crosses (from what I've seen).
But then again as mentioned, I have chubby finger syndrome, and I find it cumbersome working around the clamps, on badminton frames, not so much for tennis.
(eg. if I decide to clamp from underneath the string bed, that I always jam a finger or knuckle into the base or two)
If you havent already watched someone string a racquet, Master Panda (Dinkalot); just finished a new stringing video, from a bird's eye point of view, so you can see what he doing. (Very nicely done, thank you for that Master Panda. It's always good for me to see how different people string, I can always learn or pick up something new )
Only issues, I've been running into since I tried pre-lacing the entire racquet first; is working out the damn twisting in the strings (chubby finger syndrome strikes again )
So I will probably go back to just pre-lacing the mains, and just do my usual weave weave weave, tension tension tension dealie
Anywho... back on topic!!
Cant wait to read Master Pete's review kekeke.

I haven't strung a racket so far but I can only say the fit and finish is pretty crappy compared to LaserFibre/Stringway and SPT. Once again, the side supports fit very well.
Devilcat, hope your experiment will turn out positively. I have a feeling the Yonex has much better fit and finish.

The fit and finish of the machine won't have anything to do with your performance stringing. As long as the supports hold the racket correctly and the tension puller pulls correctly, you'll be all set.
For me, I would not get the Yonex machine. It's not worth the money. If you are that concerned about the paint job, then don't get Eagnas.
