I am a college student playing tennis for a smaller school in Kansas. I bought the Gamma Progression ll 200 over the summer to use in my dorm. It has been a great to say the least and has survived 3 seasons of stringing for my team. I will say it took a while to feel comfortable with a drop weight tension stringer with floating clamps, I learned on a set clamp pull tension stringer. Once I learned how to start the string and pull it, everything has been cake. You can beat the cost of the Gamma Progression ll 200 plus it comes with tools and all! I would highly recommend it to players that like to take care of their own rackets or want to take up stringing for a little extra money!
