I have to admit, the only reason I bought this machine was because it was the cheapest machine out there. But I was greatly surprised at how great the quality of the machine was. Just by picking up the machine and feeling the weight of the components, you can easily tell that the machine is going to last a long time. The instructions included with the machine are a bit vague and don't give much help to the whole stringing job unless you already have experience stringing. I love how the machine came with all the tools needed to string a racket as adequately as a professional. When I bought this, I bought 2 rolls of string separately. Being a completely beginner stringer, and going off of YouTube Videos, I didn't want to screw up and damage my newly purchase string. This product came with 4, 40 ft. coils of tennis string though. I was able to use these 4 coils to act as "Practice" and get familiar with the stringing process. If you are having trouble with getting familiar with stringing on this machine, I recommend you search "Gamma x-2 stringing tutorial" on YouTube. For the price and just overall, this product is a great buy! In comparison to the Gamma x-6 which is over $150 more expensive, this machine does the same thing and maybe even better. Very Impressed!
This machine is worth the price. Its simple and easy to learn and use. It strings racquets great and is pretty reliable.
cuts down on stringing cost so I can restring more often and try different tensions. another plus, drop weights are very accurate never need calibration . and its portable. just get it! this stringer has the " how did I live without it" feel to it.
Love this machine, it would be nice if there was dvd tutorial on it some of the videos on you tube are hard to understand
Great restringing machine. It does the job. Plus I get 4 nice strings with it.
Purchased this stringer for my 12 year old son for xmas. He breaks or needs a re-stringing about one a month. Really didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. After a couple of restarts and watching a couple you tube videos, it actually wasn't that hard. He strung the whole racquet himself needing a little help on the knots. So far seems to work great.
