    Yes, you do. I've strung about 50 rackets on the Wise now and it's a dream.

    It's an Eagnas Combo 910. It's OK for the money, gets the job done but nothing to write home about.

    Luckily, the 910 Combo has been cloned to high heaven (itself it may be a clone, I can't tell any more). I've seen these heads fit on Pro's Pro, RAB, Toalson, Klip (Sidewinder, I believe), SA, Gamma...

    Looks like Mr Wise has pulled a Microsoft and become the only game in town. I can see real potential for this machine at tournaments, since those stringers tend to carry backup manual machines in case their default electrics conk out.

    i'll see if i can get the 910 with out the crank device.




    the A04 Pro's Pro Pilot looks alright as well.





    now it's time to get the PERFECT match for the 2086 head. anyone else have any other models to consider?

    #1 issue would be the clamps that block the holes. and i don't want to end up loosen it each time the hole gets blocked. do the above machines do it?

    Speaking for the Pilot: yes, they do. I have had to modify mine to overcome it. Just remove the yellow pad from the small side of the K-bracket and replace it with a smaller and thicker piece of plastic. I used scraps of PVC window frame, which is perfect because it gives very slightly. If I can ever get my camera working I'll post some pics.

    Volia!

    i finally got a quote from the Australian distributor. $1360.00 AUD which includes the tennishead and pedal. that's $1,252.35 USD. eeEeeeeeeeeeeeeeek

    i think i will order from the US of A ($495 USD) if i can get postage less $200 USD to Australia?

    i decided to modify my existing trump SM-B2 to fit instead of purchasing another crank machine. i'm going to mount it on the opposite side (non lever side) on the structural support itself OR on the table.

    That's actually quite ingenious. If you can mount it in such a way that it won't slide (whatsoever), you're onto a winner. There's a fair amount of travel on that head, and the default position of the gripper is quite far forwards, so you can mount it pretty close to the turntable and have shorter loops as well.

    I'd be curious to see some pics of this, as it's the first time I've ever seen it attempted (no pressure). If it works, you can even use your redundant swing arm as a radio antenna as well...

    I see an old Ti-10. I also see some boxes labeled Chao Pai in the back.

    It's pretty tight.

    Like my crank at 35lbs.

    Hi!

    Just a question, how would you rate the machine with the new tensioner with something like a Gamma X-ES which has an electric tensioner. Is the Wise tensioner pretty much like the same as the one you can get from Gamma? They have a $500 upgrade for their tensioner as well. Thanks.

    Eric

    I haven't worked with a rotary tensioner in any detail to make an accurate comparison but after 60+ rackets with the Wise linear gripper, I absolutely love it. It's first-rate.
