Wow - those SPtennis side mounts look sweet! Would definitely solve the problem of digging strings blocked by the side supports out! Look like they'll fit on the Pro's Pro Pilot as well.
Looked up the SPTennis website & couldn't see them though =(. Any leads on how to get hold of them, Dinkie/Pete?

http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...hlight=SP+Opus regarding the same exact badminton supports. Are they not good enough now?

come one...you've got to be kidding me...
some sort of unquantifiable "stress" that will be put on one 'side' of the frame, because the support if no V, and it doesn't "support" the lower part. is that it?
The top part is so close to the grommet, there's no moment to transfer, the racket can't go anywhere... There's nothing wrong with those supports.
That's not a w7, right? what is it?

Points of interest,
This simple diagram shows 2 side supports A & B, when you pull the string from B side, the frame will get squeezed and got pulled a couple of mm away from A and disregard whether it is a K or V support, right. Would that be a better design if those side supports are made like two "l" one inside and one outside the frame , so when we pull the string the "l" design inside support will secure the frame in place without any distortion. I hope I am making my point clear so you guys understand.

Where to get it in Australia without paying through the nose?
I've been eyeing this machine for ages but I'm living in Aus so it is selling for a freakin AUD $1090.00 (without shipping costs) through its main distributor Jadee Sports.
That is way over my current budget so does anybody knows where to get it for a cheaper price? Also, my current machine is Eagnas Hawk 126e (http://www.eagnas.com/hawk126e.html#spescl) which I personally think could be better if I could fit the tennishead 2086 onto it. However, I was wondering if my current setup is suitable for tennishead? It would be great if kind souls out there could help enlighten me
Thanks in advance!

I strung two identical rackets using white BG80. One was on the original crank and one on the ECP. I checked the calibration with my Berkeley digital scale. From factory the crank was ~3lbs too low. The electric tension head was within 0.5lbs.
I usually string 29x~30.5 2PTD on my crank to get close to a 28lb when everything settles.
Yesterday I used the following to get identical string tone: 29x~30.5 crank/prestretched by hand, 28x30.8 CP/no overpull/no prestretch.
The electric is easier and faster to string with especially with the footpedal. String slip on the gripper occurs above 28lbs. It should be easy to modify the gripper with a bit of grinding to bring the two sides closer to accept all badminton strings and tensions. Instead of using leather grip, I used one piece of cardboard (from the packaging of Yonex string) as a workaround.
The electric is a pleasure to use. It is not very noisy. People playing MJ two feet away and another watching TV didn't seem distracted.
Now, back to my crude little tabletop crank...
