    You may have already ordered the Shuttle Express from Pro's Pro, but if cost is most important then go ahead. If you want quality & value for money, go for the Exthree AM200. The Pros Pro is a cheaper quality version of it. I owned an AM200 for 3 years and found it brilliant, I sold it and now use a floor standing Exthree 2600 suitable for all rackets.
    The AM200 has just been reduced in price from 350 to 250 from Yehlex UK web site and comes in a good tool box with all you need.
    I have used Exthree & Pro's Pro and the latter are not engineered to the same standard which is noticeable when stringing.

    In essence you get what you pay for !

    Hope this helps

    Cheers people but I've had to put the stringing machine on hold because my coach has offered to buy me a stringing machine and send all her clients my way for a cut of the profits. We are having a business meeting on Saturday.

    Hopefully we can come to a good arrangement

    Thanks for the suggestion! (Your not a shill are you ?)

    I like the AM200's C shaped racket pads/brackets/mount thingies looks more secure than the ones used in ASE and Pro's Pro Shuttle Express and their N&S floating suspension (I'm not a big fan of clamp down for some reason).

    Oh and it appears that the Exthree AM200 is identical to the Hi-Qua machine sold on mybadmintonstore. Compare the prices and take your pick

    Now to find out if I can put the WISE on it...

    It will depend on the length of the main bar. on the Alpha version it's 56 or so cm and the wise will fit with just a few holes to drill (you'll be wanting to use a pillar drill so you get them nice and straight). On the pro's pro the bar is about 10cm shorter, so to fit the wise you need to either get a new bar, different feet (or a floor stand) or raise it up a little, like so:

    I used some spent cable tie plastic tails (zip ties) which happened to be exactly the right size,and put some heat shrink over the top to hold them in place. t left me with a square mount instead of a round one, which is kinder to racket frames. I'll take some close up photos tomorrow if you like.
