    I have strung ns8000 for around 10 times(my own and including friend's). Around the tension of 25-27lbs, no problems so far.

    All the ns8000 are all sp version as i am based in Singapore. Is it because of your stringing pattern?

    Might be too cold in canada for the SP rackets, which are more used to the warmer climates =p!

    Thumbs up stringing.

    A 2 knotter majority. Unless some dudes wants it 4 knots.

    By using drop weight machines, it normally takes me about 45-50 minutes per racket, without pre-string. The fastest i ever did, was about 35 mintues. Well, I have fat fingers...

    manual (NOT drop-weight) = 19 mins
    electronic = 25 mins

    I think people really need to move on from drop-weight..those are wayyyy too inconsistent when it comes to tension..=)

    I use a drop weight machine and i think its great. I check the pitch of the mains before i weave the cross and they match all the way out from the centre.( the centre 2 however are usually within a semitone of one another-quarter tone if i get lucky, but thats rare.) that means that the tension on them is equal, so in any one racket at least , its pretty consistant.

    slow work though.

    Another Klipper user here, but it usually takes me 90 min for a racket.

    Turn on the TV, pour some wine, get a dish of cha-shao and peanuts ...

    I string for myself and a few playing buddy, for free.

    different stringing method are suited for different stringer. 1 might be good for 1 and not another. just choose a good one base on your need and budget. no need to bash other people's machine and speed. just like there is nothing wrong when the gentalman who can string a racquet in less than 20min with string crossed as long as he follow the customer requested pattern.
