    ^The clamps and their bases are what stuck out for me. Really positive "snicky" action, made my PP bases look decidedly wishy-washy.

    so im guessing that the yonex machine is going to be the top machine in terms of reliability. i don't or haven't started doing tournament stringing for badminton as of yet but it could be something that i would be interested in doing. but for this moment in time its about me being able to nail down and get the badminton racquets done through my club and friends.

    so i question myself is it worth buying the Yonex machine now or will the Victor machine be enough for me now and perhaps 5 years or so down the line?......

    is it worth spend 3000 for the victor or 6000 for the Yonex machine????

    thanks for all your reply.

    i still would like to see what size tennis racket ould get mounted to the victor machine.

    IMHO, if you string more than 15 racquets a week and you have enough money and time to wait to recover your money, get the Yonex. If you string other types of racquet other than badminton, get the Yonex. Other wise, get the Victor.
    1) Yonex has tilt on the machine that will save your back when you string 4 racquets in a row. Also, the gravity release is SO nice and save you ~5 min per racquet.
    2) Other racquets, trust me, from someone owns a Wilson Baiardo machine and strung on Star5 and many other machines, Yonex beats Victor on all other racquets too.

    Hi kwun,I have a stringing business in London, mainly for badminton. www.rudystrings.com is the website but it's currently not online. But you can search rudystrings for the Facebook page.I own a Babolat Star 5, but it's not good enough for badminton, that's why I've been looking at an alternative machine, the victor is a good option if the machine is as good as people say it is or the yonex but that's a lot of money, will need more savings unless I can't find a second hand or used yonex machine.Thanks
