    Default Gamma Progression 600 ES

    Hi there,

    This machine is quite old, the manual I found online for it ranges back to 1997. Is this a machine I could use for badminton stringing? The manual doesn't say anything about compatibility, and it strings from 11 to 90 pounds, which sounds fine. The only drawback I see is that the two fixed clamps might need to be replaced with badminton capable ones. So I was looking for the opinion of someone who is familiar with this machine?

    The one I'm looking to buy it from is willing to sell it to me for sub 500, assuming he doesn't get better offers, and its in Florida, so I can't exactly go and test it out.

    So I finally closed the deal. Its 550 after shipping charges (via ebay ^_^) and so I'm going to pay for it soon, and hopefully have it at my house by christmas. I only have experience stringing on the M140, but I'll hopefully be able to compare the two.

    I also need to learn how to use a 6 point properly now...

    Oh really? I thought stringing machines were like all electronic devices, they got old and outdated after 3-5 years.
