    I would not trust those side supports.

    I've bought that exact machine in Australia brand new for approx A$600.
    Are you getting the machine brand new or second hand?

    The side support is not the best, but they are sufficient. As discussed on another thread, good head/throat internal support is more important than good external side support.
    Therefore, I would recommend also getting load spreaders for the head/throat support.

    P.s. the photo you've posted looks like it has tennis clamps... so make sure you get the ones for badminton

    Good advice ... Many stringing machines are made for both Badminton and Tennis. So, it is best to make sure that Badminton clamps are included before we buy.

    Keep in mind pete's ultra uber hyper tensioning of 30lbs+ For most mortals of the 20lb realm it could be a decent system. However, i agree those sides look questionable.

    The racquet support is of major importance for badminton and there is a lot said about this item in this threat: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=49615

    But one thing is for sure this support is not too good for badminton. The supports can not be placed closer to the 12 and 6 o'clock position and they are too close to 3 o'clock for badminton.

    This is a major matter, the closer you get to 3 o'clock the higher the stress in the racquet between the support and 12 o'clock.
