those clamps are nice. similar to the ones on the ES5Pro/Protech. once disengaged and dropped, it also disengages the bottom clamp. however, the price is kinda high, 60 Euros for each set. and it is only for tennis...

Just to clairfy my suggestion was to drill the Gamma adapter and use the track holes as a guide. The second option was to drill the tension rail, which would be a bit harder, because the tension rail is made from steel.
I think you have 30 days to return the Gamma adapter to TW. Let us know on your progress, I'm curious of the outcome.

CovinaStringer, The Pro's Pro clamp, Do they have Badminton clamp also?

I think this is the same as the W&D Dual Clamp:
Supposedly a Badminton, Squash and Tennis clamp.

[QUOTE=CovinaStringer;1624101]I think these are better, and sold by Arfaian (Pro's Pro):
I mean this one, sold by Arfaian.com, it come with tennis clamp, do they also has badminton o universal clamp. Because, I reality like the way how the clamp can be automatic release by drop the clamp.

Upss..sorry, yes it's Watdon. Yes, I think drilling the adapter is much better. Most probably I will drill the main part (bigger section) because using the smaller part will raise the WISE above the racket level. But I still hope the adapter from Watdon can do the trick. Thanks for the info TW 30 days return policy.

and you will not lose the 360 degree rotation.
Original Gamma function is supposed to like this :
this is because position of the racket frame mounting is high.
so it still needs the original adapter. the one you would like to buy from TW is the silver color one on that picture (old version).
but you insist to use the Gamma, then you should make a modification into either tension-bar or the Gamma adapter (as per Master CovinaStringer suggestion).
another suggestion is to cut the small part (upper and bottom, it is as like "C" and make like "L") of the original adapter, so you can put your tension-bar freely, then make a hole into both tension-bar and original adapter.

What is your hangup with modifying the C bracket?
My best suggestion would be using longer screws (bolts) for the toothed rail. Long enough to go through the Gamma bracket and be held on with nuts. The only drilling would be to the Gamma adapter bracket. At least the only modification would be to the Gamma adapter which is $20. Everything else could be returned to stock if needed. The hard part of this whole modification is finding the right height and marking the holes for drilling. Though I would suggest using a drill press to make the holes.

and to make secure, just drill on C-bracket and using long bolt.
let me try to make a picture of it ....

Just curious, are all the fix clamps from different maunufacturers inter-changeable ?
03-04-2011, 02:22 PM #250
It depends on the manufacturer. Most string clamps are inter-changeable. As for the base clamps they usually come with rails that match. If you know how the parts work, you can figure out what to modify to make it work. Like Panda's base clamps.

Good to know, thanks

Just a quick update. I've solved my bracket problem by getting a new-modified bracket from Watdon in UK. I attached a picture of it. Now I am having another problem with the machine itself. I set my tension (e.g. 23 lbs) but when it pull the string it stop at 7.0 lbs with one beep sound (pictures attached). I press the reset button to no avail. Did I miss anything? any special set up? thanks in advance for any advice you may share.

You string is slipping through the gripper or it's got too much slack. There is a gripper adjustment above the red tigger button. See picture below:
I want to say it's 3mm, but don't quote me on that. It's tough to get an allen wrench in because the stop gets in the way. The best way is to use a ball headed allen wrench.

Thank you for your valuable advice. It's solved again..ok I am ready to dive in now.

When it slips like that, examine the string for damage.
