    Probably use the same OEM as Li Ning and Victor machines?

    Interesting market. As it's a badminton only machine and so expensive, they're only good for badminton only shops or shops so big they can afford to have a dedicated machine for badminton.

    I wonder when pulling if the gripper rises, and looks like they slap on a diablo on it compared to the other OEM's machines.

    Heard it from someone but Victor says their Badminton specific machines string badminton rackets better then their Tennis/Badminton stringing machine. :confused:

    It doesn't rise : https://www.tiktok.com/@chiggazsports/video/7304131784755662098

    Apart from the fact that it will be more compact compared to a Tennis/Badminton stringing machine, I don't see any advantages of a Badminton only stringing machine

    Thanks for the video! The blue color is so nice, but that $$$ vs the other competitors, not sure if the blue is worth.

    I thought the same, and its just fluff talk, considering the Badminton only machine is $300 less, vs the Tennis/Badminton, its kinda a no brainer.

    That's a steep price for an "entry" Yonex machine when not even made by toyozouki (precision 8)

    As mentioned earlier likely same OEM (exthree?). The fixed clamps are the distinguishing feature of the OEM (ratchet lock). Victor machines have it, the Head TE 3300 and now the precision 3. the only difference is that the gripper doesn't move up.

    The solution is to repaint the machine like the one of @kakinami :p
