    I've got the Pro's Pro version (Pilot) and it's never put a foot wrong in three+ years. Regular maintenance carried out, though.

    I own an Eagnas Combo 810. It's one of the most popular Eagnas models ever made and also one of their best values. It's been a great machine for me so far. You can improve it by using Michal Chudek's side supports and by using the Watdon WA 3342 swivel clamps here http://www.watdon.co.uk/wd-strings/a...Clamps_13.html

    I have to admit never testing the stock swivel clamps that came with my Eagnas Combo 810. I already had a pair of the Watdon WA3342 5 prong dual clamps ready to use for my Combo 810 which arrived only 5 days after I ordered it. The new link for these clamps is here http://www.watdon.co.uk/wd-strings/a...Clamps_13.html

    i what way are they hopeless? must be pretty bad if you prefer using flying clamps than the fixed clamps.

    When you order an Eagnas Combo 810, you have an option on specifying whether you want tennis or badminton fixed clamps. If you don't say anything on that point, you will by default get the tennis fixed clamps. I wonder if shuennms is trying the Eagnas tennis fixed clamps? Their 3 prongs would cause issues doing the crosses on a badminton racket.

    Could be that shuennms does have the Eagnas badminton fixed clamps, but is running into issues where they cannot be adjusted properly, ie. they won't hold the string properly and if you adjust them tighter, they crush the string and become very hard to operate.

    On my next stringing job, I will break out my Eagnas badminton fixed clamps and see just how bad they are.

    As a novice stringer, I think good fixed clamps makes stringing much easier to do (especially with starting mains) and also makes for a much better quality stringing job. With fixed clamps you can start mains easily, you can alternate left and right of center one main at a time rather than two at a time like you have to do with flying clamps. You can also pull directly on the first cross of a two piece string job, something you can't do with flying clamps. There is also a lot of extra string sagging going on with the use of flying clamps that doesn't happen with fixed clamps.

    Obviously, to get these benefits you do need a machine with decent fixed clamps and that costs more than the non-fixed clamp machines.

    The problem with using tennis clamps for badminton is usually the tooth spacing when it comes to crosses. This, and tennis clamps seem far "bulkier" and don't care about our strings as much.

    Thats exactly is my problem. I do have both badminton & tennis clamps. Overall still happy with the price versus usability. Though trying to justify to get a WISE now.

    Shuennms, I too am heading towards buying a Wise 2086 for my Combo 810. But the two lower cost upgrades you can make on the upgrade path of your Combo 810 is the addition of the Watdon fixed clamps and the custom side supports from Michal Chudek.

    The Chudek side supports give very secure mounting of a racket along with tremendous access around the supports. They are a great improvement over the stock Combo 810 racket supports. The Chudek side supports cost about $50 USD plus shipping.

    You can see a review of the supports here,

    More can be seen on them here http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...-Machine-Parts

    At the top of the first thread listed is a link to the email address for Michal Chudek. If you are interested, he will email you an exact quote on the cost of the supports and shipping to your address.
