      Comments about Gamma X-6FC Stringing Machine:

      This machine is better than the alpha version. There is more space for weaving the cross string, which makes stringing faster. The six point mounting is more secure. There is no irritating oil smell. If you are stringing a multifilament or softer string, you will start out ratcheting the drop weight with the bar closer to parallel to the ground. As it gets harder to ratchet you have to ratchet with the bar closer to perpendicular to the floor. This makes it easier to use. The aluminum frame makes it lighter and easier to put away. I highly recommend this product.

        Comments about Gamma X-6FC Stringing Machine:

        I already sent a review for the first machine (X-6FC) that I purchased from Holabird. This is the second machine (also X-6FC) that I purchased from Holabird. I have two homes and I got the second one for the other home and retired my two older and cheaper drop weight machines. This machine has six point holding, fixed metal clamps, and a clever winder for the drop weight that simplifies tensioning. I love this machine.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was ontime; arrived in perfect condition; was easy to assemble; and with this second purchase of an identical machine about one year after the first, I ordered with confidence from Holabird expecting that this item would arrive ontime and in perfect condition. Wonderful company... wonderful machine...

            Comments about Gamma X-6FC Stringing Machine:

            This was very easy to assemble out of the box. For anyone experienced with drop weight stringers and floating clamps, this is a very nice upgrade. The string gripper is very positive with no slippage. The fixed clamps are easy to use, easy to adjust, and unlike the floating clamp systems, you won't have a problem with the last string of a Prince ExO3 because of the fixed clamp on a single string that makes this easy. That alone makes this a wonderful machine. It saves time compared to the floating clamps I was using before. The six point mount makes it easy to see all of the grommet holes and has no slippage.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was on time as estimated and arrived in perfect condition. I could not have expected anything better.

                  Comments about Gamma X-6FC Stringing Machine:

                  I used the machine for stringing for my friends and myself as well. The machine is really good at getting the tension, minus the tie off string. You have to be careful with the clamps or you may end up scratching your strings. Practice makes perfect. Holabird sports delivered it really quickly and efficiently. I would recommend buying from this place.

                  • Q:

                    Are the clamps metal as shown in picture 1 or plastic as shown in picture 2? I'm wanting all metal clamps. If they are, I'm sold. Please let me know, I've been on the market for this machine for some time now.

                      The clamps are metal. The picture is incorrect. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

                      No, you do not need a special clamp for the badminton racket.

                      A:

                      You can string a few Badminton racquets just fine with the clamps provided. If you are using this machine primarily for badminton stringing, it would be best to purchase an adaptable clamp specifically designed for Badminton racquets. We do not sell them, but you can buy them aftermarket for about $75.
