  • Wide mounting area safely and sturdily secures frames.
  • Composite split drum gripper with patented diamond coated ratchet gripper.
  • Quick 6-point mounting system.
  • Universal die cast string clamps with diamond coating and self-locking adjustment knob to hold strings with less clamping pressure.
  • Quick action swivel clamp bases that lock with the turn of a lever.
  • Drop weight tensioner with a range from 9-90 pounds.
  • 360 degree turntable rotation for ease of use.
  • Tools included: Gamma Pathfinder Awl, Straight Awl, Hex Wrenches, Straight Pliers, Razor Cutter.

Comments about Gamma Progression 602 FC Stringing Machine:

First I'd like to say the 1 star review does not reflect in any way the performance of the stringing machine itself, only that Holabird messed up when shipping this product to the review writer. It should be taken off this product review page because of that.

I have owned one of these for the past 7 years and string my rackets every couple months, but now I'm trying to start a stringing service on the side to make some extra income. Rackets are easy to place in the holders with no major tools needed besides a long hex screwdriver which comes included. All the moving parts are dead silent to this day and I haven't greased anything at all. Drop weight might not be as accurate as the electronic systems but are good enough for me. Floating clamps are easy to use and have adjustable clamp sizes for different gauge string. I have noticed sometimes that when stringing the crosses, the the path of the lever that holds the floating clamps in place will interfere with the other clamp that's already immobilized, but it is simple to get around that.

Major downside is the bulkiness of the unit, it's heavy and also uneven in weight distribution so it's not fun to carry around the house. Also, I don't like how far the racket is to the string puller because I've encountered situations before where I'm almost done changing the mains and I run out of string to reach the puller (but had enough string to tie off). Overall, it's a great, relatively affordable stringing unit that I'd recommend to casual stringers but if you're a pro, look elsewhere.

Comments about Gamma Progression 602 FC Stringing Machine:

I was actually shipped the wrong machine and had to return it.

In the same week I ordered a NEW Ball Machine, and when I received it, found that it had been obiviously sent out before and return. There were parts & manuals missing, the charger included was not the one shipped from the manufacturer and someone had used the box to play a game of hangman!

  • Q:

    I have been told that the machine comes standard with Badminton Shoulder Support Adapter Covers that slide over the Shoulder Supports on the machine to accommodate the smaller frame sizes of badminton racquets. Is this accurate

      Universal String Clamps with diamond coating provide adequate clamping pressure for both badminton and tennis racquets.

      Answered on 3/14/2018 by Louie from Holabird Sports
  • Q:

    Can this machine be used to string badminton rackets? Will the fixed clamps be able to grip badminton strings?

      Unfortunately not. These tennis machines may use string grippers that either cannot clamp badminton strings (22gauge and smaller), or can but either crush or tear the string when tensioning.

  • Q:

    Can this also do badminton rackets

      Yes. The clamps are designed to adjust to most frames.
