    Default Goodbye Crank and Hello Constant Pull (Wise 2086 aka Tennis Head)

    Received the Wise 2086 Professional Tennis Head about 30 minutes ago...

    ...stringing will never be the same for the panda.

    A complete review after I string 10-20 rackets...

    The Wise 2086 is $500 + shipping. You can check it out here: www.tennishead.com.

    I just strung two rackets with it and I have to say:

    Panda will NEVER go back to crank.
    Electronic constant pull rules!

    I may YouTube the disparity in tension loss/gain from just moving the string or racket slightly. I started experimenting and it's really interesting to see how much you can alter the string tension just from minor movements.

    Now I see, firsthand, how if one is not consistent with a crank machine the tension can be off significantly.

    Just to clarify, the Tennis Head was $500. The stringing machine itself was $500+.

    On a sidenote: ...why was my post moved to "Stringing Techniques"? It's "Badminton Equipment".

    Not for this panda. ECP (Electronic Constant Pull) does a way better job stringing. If string tension and consistency doesn't matter much for you, then go crank. But if you do notice differences and/or are more passionate about string tension and its accuracy, ECP is the way to go.
