    Default Cheapest most effective stringing machine

    Hello People

    I would like to start stringing my own rackets and was wondering if people could tell me what the cheapest most effective stringing machine is and where to get it.

    I don't really want to spend over £250

    Thanks

    Don't forget to order the Fly Clamps from (in following order) HiQua, Yonex, MBS, Eagnas.

    what about the easy-3. For about 50usd more it boasts a single fixed clamp and a hold down clamping method around the frame?

    Nope, not for me. Though I like the fixed clamp, I don't like the clamping method, it's harder to use, harder to get right.

    Oh man, I wouldn't get this thing unless you live in LA. You have to be there in person or else Eagnas in LA will send you a used and defective unit.

    Here is a good one besides the Pro's Pro Shuttle Express: http://www.cnalphabadminton.com/shop...products_id=39

    You can get the AM-200H6 - Portable from Mister Keen at mksg@netvigator.com Be sure to add two extra Exthree or HiQua flying and three Yonex flying clamps (for cross stringing).

    What's the difference between the Pro's Pro Shuttle Express and the AM-200H6, they both look very similiar.

    They are so generic in appearance and that's all I can say.

    These two machines, from the photo, look identical.

    Watdon sells the Pro's Pro for 135 UKP and ships from UK
    The other sells for ~224 UKP. I'm not sure why there's such a big difference in price.

    The two flying clamps that come with the PP SE are not as strong for gripping at higher tensions as the MBS clamps (which others have said are the same as Hi Qua).

    Watdon also lists the Yonex flying clamp for 8 UKP which, from what I've seen, is one of the least expensive anywhere. It's even less than the MBS or HiQua from MBS.

    One word of warning is the PP's seem to often lack user manuals in the box. It's very easy and I didn't need any.

    From the photos of the ST-250, I think the ST-250 would be easier and faster to string with than the PP SE. The mounting hardware on the PP SE make it a tighter fit for clamping and weaving near the throat and head.
