    It seems that Watdon used Pro's Pro Challenger 2 as basis, while Geffen used Eagnas Combo 3800 as basis then add Wise 2086 tension head.

    Both turntable and arms almost similar.

    So they are both the same basically then but a different price.

    out of the 2, in opinions which would say is the better?? an can you justify your choice please.

    is there any difference between a specific badminton stringing machine or combined machines for all racket sports?

    cheers

    They are not the same. Since your budget is no more than £600, just go for Watdon's machine, especially when Watdon's customer service is way better than Eagnas.

    both using Eagnas based, but different machine name, but if see carefully, they are the same, just that Watdon used Pro's Pro Challenger 2 (drop weight) while Geffen used Combo 3800. Please pay attention at the turntable and components there.

    Pro's Pro also using Eagnas/Maxline.

    Yes, the customer service from Maxline/Eagnas is not friendly, but I'm using Eagnas and the customer service is friendly enough (from Lily Lee Co. Ltd, the manufacturer of Eagnas).

    Thanks for your response, so customer service aside which would be the better machine? is there other similar machine that you can reccomend?
    what im also worried about is the fact that the side 4 supports maybe too wide or make it awkward to thread the string through the grommets.???

    cheers people..
