I string on a Star 5 because I prefer the advantages of a constant pull machine, but I would never denegrate my fellow stringers who prefer the speed and simplicity of a Neos 1000.
No serious volume stringer would use a drop weight machine. If you string at tournaments you would see that it's either a constant pull machine or a prince Neos, never a drop weight.
I'd be the first to say that I can't produce a better product with my Star 5 than a great stringer with a good crank like a Neos. I think you need to stick to your drop weights at home stringing your own rackets. I'm sure you can do a good job. Just don't expect serious players to take you seriously.
Are you a member of the Untied States Racquet Stringers Association? Are you even certified to string rackuets? Get an education in stringing and then come back and talk to us about stringing.

FYI I own both a dropweight and ECP. I use the dropweight 90% of the time because it's simple and the results are the best. The ECP is just for show and if I really need to crank out racquets. Every week I have "serious players" who have had enough of their jobs being done on a manual and loving my string jobs because of constant pull and probably my attention to detail.
It's funny how you assume I only have a dropweight because I advocate it. Or being a member of USRSA makes you a good stringer. Or all pros have no clue about stringing. Or serious players won't go to a stringer using drop weight.
I think that'll be my cue to stay out of this thread because clearly you don't like to reason and you don't like to hear other opinions so this will get nowhere. BCF has always been a friendly community for me so I'll leave it that way. It just makes me wonder why you even bothered to post on a forum when you seem to prefer to reject rather than listen to opinions, and you prefer to put down other people who are taking time out of their lives to give you a hand, just because they respectfully disagree with your opinions.

Not sure I understand these USRSA thing, let's hope it stay in US and don't extend it to Badminton world.
Having certification is one thing but if the association (USRSA) determine who can string a badminton racket is another thing.
Just my 2 cents...I like my drop wt. machine and have no USRSA, and don't care abt it.
