<x-charset ISO-8859-1>Theresa - Tennis Stringer,
I've been stringing now for about 10 years and have owned
4 different types of machines. I disagree with Jim
regarding the constant pull machines. Most shops don't
have one and you'll be hard pressed to duplicate the
tension/string job that your customer already has. With
regards to the Laserfibre machines, the racquet mounting
system is excellent but the pulling mechanism is crude and
difficult to set up and calibrate. I strongly recomment
the Prince/Ektalon Neos. It's a sturdy, easy to use
machine and countless shops have been using examples for
many, many years. They have two minor disadvantages. You
cannot rotate the racquet 360 degrees so you have to swing
the racquet around to do each side. I don't find this a
big deal but it bothers some people. You cannot string fan
shaped racquets without using the flying clamps that Prince
gives you. With swivel clamps you can string fan shaped
racquets but unless you buy an expensive machine, read $3,500
and up, you won't get good swivel clamps. The racquet
mounting system on the Neos is rock solid and provides
excellent support for today's delicate racquets. The
string clamps are very easily adjustable and there is
absolutly no flex or movment and it only requires one movement
to clamp the clamp and the string whereas the swivel clamps
require 2 movements and do flex thus losing tension at each
string. Best of luck.
