    ^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

    I'm being told that the 7032 has an automatic prestretch feature ? Like the machine will determine what's the good prestretch to use for the current string while pulling and do the correct prestretching without having to set it to (5%-10%-15%).

    Can anyone confirm this ?

    I find this extremely unlikely and probably not possible.

    I'm almost 100% certain that this is a non-exist function.

    I am currently using the Victor 7031 machine and there is a 5, 10 and 15% pre stretch button. i use 10% most of the time. I would expect 7032 to have it.

    Can't confirm with regard to the 32, but the 31 definitely hasn't got it.

    Besides, how would it know how much is the "best" pre-stretch?

    @yan.v I just asked a friend who owns 7032. Surprisingly, it doesn't even have pre-stretch function. (No way to set 5%,10%,or 15%) Not to mention the magic feature you were told.

    Yeah, that's what I am thinking.

    I don't think it is possible to automatically detect what is the best pre-stretch for a string.

    The Victor guys told me that some people complained that the C-7032 was always overpulling without any pre-stretch settings and that it was because the machine determines the correct pre-stretch settings depending on the string and overpulls by that much every time. After the people knew the reason for the overpull, they didn't complain anymore. He was surprised that the VE-80 didn't have that feature and a normal pre-stretch setting for it.

    All of this doesn't make sense to me, but I can't really say it doesn't exist until an experienced stringer that has the machine (or has used the machine) confirms it.

    Interestingly, my friend did mention about this behavior. He said the tension head pulls a little bit more after beeps and we thought it's because it's doing constant pull to compensate the tension loss.

    Yeah, it should keep pulling a little after it reaches the tension. Does it keep pulling slowly so the tension stays at the set tension or does it pull more than the set thension ?
