    Never will I use a crank again unless forced to. CP + PS from the WISE reminds the long-lost LaserFibre DW experience . . . Like it tight and consistent.

    Update!

    Since Panda heard about the Tennis Head having an updated gripper, Panda purchased one. It was $50 + shipping and it includes the gripper plates, two heavy duty support mounting plates, one each side, two springs and 16 bearings, 8 for each plate. The set-up looks identical to Panda's old set-up. Panda believes Wise just made the gripping plate grooves deeper so they can grip tighter.

    Regardless of what actually happened, it works great! Stringing is now much smoother and faster without having to use a business card or in Panda's case, a hard rubber film piece actually in the gripper to hold the string secure.

    Now Panda's "Frankenstein" Machine (PFM) is 95% complete.

    Here's a list of items on PFM:

    1) Eagnas Combo 910: $500
    2) Wise 2085 Tennis Head with foot pedal: $535
    3) Hi-Qua Premium Badminton Clamps: $150 pair
    4) Gamma Cam Locks: $250 pair
    5) SP Tennis Badminton Mounts: $50 four
    6) Urethane Tubing on the mounts: $1.50 for 1' long

    Left to do:
    1) need to machine SP Tennis' 12 and 6 o'clock press down mounts to fit inside the Combo 910

    Then PGM will be 100% complete.

    I took the plunge and have a Wise 2086 now on my Exthree machine, and also use a Diablo Attachment, and a Foot Pedal. Stringing has never been so easy, and I will now only use the Wise 2086.

    I only have to adjust by say 10% lower than requested, so if someone wants a tension of say 24lbs, I will probably string at 22/22.5 Lbs.

    FYI, cost was 425.00

    I've ordered the 12 and 6 o'clock press-down mounting system from AEF, and it works perfectly at my Eagnas Combo-912 without modification/machining : http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...7&postcount=16

    Anyone having trouble with their Wise 2086. Occasionaly, I'll turn mine on and it just comes up with the number 1. and flashes. None of the button light up then. Sometimes, if I leave it for 5 hours, it'll work again :-\

    Check the electrical connector leading to your machine, rotate the connector. Occasionally it doesn't get power or inconsistent power. Once you rotate and find the "right setting". Tape it down or just make sure the cable is not touched and you should be OK.

    Tried the connector and didn't make a difference.. On the plug, theres 2 prongs. One of the prongs has come off... I normally just put the 1 prong in the socket then put the rest of the plug in. Would this give me inconsistent power? Weird how it works sometimes, as its stationary in the kitchen and never moves.

    I'm not sure how the electrical system works in the UK. In the US, there are 3-prongs.

    Best to contact your Wise distributor and figure it out.

    Glad I could help.

    The intermittent on/off is so frustrating.

    With the 10% pre-stretch option in place, there's minimal tension loss and it's definitely a consistent 3+lbs. tighter than its crank counterparts. I've had quite a few people test my rackets and they say, "This is tight, what is it? 32-34lbs.?" I reply, "Nope, it's 27-28lbs. on my machine."

    Anyway, the panda verdict on the Wise 2086 is Excellent+!

    The new and old gripper look identical, you cannot tell the difference. The difference is, the inner grooves go deeper so it can grip the string tighter.
