    Default Gamma Progression 602 Stringing Machine

    Hi everyone..
    I just purchased a Gamma Progression 602 Stringing machine and had few questions regarding stringing using this machine. It would be very helpful if someone could help me here
    - Is Gamma Progression 602 Stringing Machine and Gamma Progression II 602 Stringing Machine the same?
    - Can Gamma Progression 602 Stringing Machine be used to string Badminton rackets?
    - The manual that came along with describes how to use it to string a tennis racket but doesnt mention much about badminton rackets. Is the procedure the same?
    - Is there any manual (or a video) on how to string a badminton racket using Gamma Progression 602 machine?
    - Do we have to purchase any additional accessories or tools to string a badminton racket other than what already comes in the package? The one ive bought is

    Thanks..

    I have that exact machine and it is perfectly suited for badminton stringing, however there are a couple of things you will need.

    1. You will need badminton flying clamps. The tennis ones it comes with will not work. I use 4 flying clamps, though 2 is fine for lower tensions (<28lbs).

    2. There are many resources out there for stringing badminton rackets. There's a great thread on this forum for the Klipper M140 in the stringing section. It's a stickied thread. You should read that through before starting your first racket.

    3 (optional). I would suggest getting load spreaders for the 12 o'clock position, and possibly for the 6 o'clock position as well. You can pay $10 for 2 from MBS or about $30 for a metal one from ATSSports. If you get the one from ATSSports, make sure you let the sales rep know what sort of side supports your machine has. There are 2 versions of the side supports and the new one raises the racket up just a few mm, enough to prevent the old load spreader from working with it.

    4. Just have fun!

    Thanks a lot for the reply.
    Regarding floating clamps - will GAMMA BADMINTON FLOATING CLAMP do?

    I've seen them being used. They will probably suffice for 24lbs and below.

    I recommend the following for mains:

    And the following for crosses:

    Why is the 6-tooth clamp better for the main? I made the experience that the 5-tooth Clamp is pretty well for the mains and for the crosses. But i only have experience with Yonex & ProsPro 5-tooth clamp.

    The 5 tooth is fine for both. I just found the 6 tooth easier for the mains. It's all up to you really.
