DB, is that an XP Pro?
PP XP Plus, Michel custom frame supports and wise tension head
Nice setup! Congrats. Hopefully you can demonstrate to your wife the justification of this purchase. Looks like your machine is on a stand. For $10-$20 you can get a foot pedal at your local music store (the official one costs about $40).
Details are here:
Mrs Swansea: "will you turn off all that Damn beeping!"
I've gone full stealth now, drop weight and flying clamps.
Very nice though.
You can kill the beeps on the WISE... but the motor still screams bloody murder - it's no PT8, that's for certain.
My motor isn't that loud
So does that mean you have to keep your foot on the pedal whilst pulling tension? I assume you don't have to keep your foot on it but it seems non-logical. A momentary switch only works when your foot is on the pedal right?
only when the wise does the "test" are you required to keep your foot on the pedal. Engaging and disengaging the tensioner requires only releasing pressure off the pedal once you stepped on it. (ie. tap the pedal). If you keep your foot on the pedal, the moment your foot is off the pedal is when the tensioner engages/disengages.
I hope that clarifies it. Maybe i should add a video onto my youtube channel to demonstrate this.
With the new design (red button under the string) there is basically no need for the foot pedal.
You'd think so, but I prefer the pedal. It does save some time and trouble sometimes
Indeed - your hand is pretty much already there when you close the grippers.
The pedal made some sense with the old "touch strip" switch.
I can't see me ever thinking "oh, I really need a pedal".
Oh yeah, my wise is awesome.
I strung a racquet at 23.5lb earlier, just because I could
It's what WISE guys do.
We'll be impressed when you can string to the square root of 593.
My WISE won't do irrational numbers... I've put a complaint/suggestion in.
So, after a couple years of using the WISE, I just noticed that the area filled with dots above the tension display screen is actually a button that activates the tensioner.
Pretty crazy considering I've probably strung hundreds and hundreds of rackets using the WISE without noticing that!
