      Comments about Gamma X-2 Stringing Machine:

      I purchased this stringer from Holabird back in 2009. I mainly string my own rackets as well as some of the folks in our tennis group. In the 8 years I've had this machine I've strung 86 rackets with it. It's still in perfect shape. The clamps are doing great. It's not the fastest stringer on the market but then again, neither am I. But is does a great job, is very consistent in tensioning, (I measure tension on every racket at center and off center when I'm done to be sure), and is easy to use. I wouldn't use it to string rackets for a living. But for someone like me it is perfect.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Holabird did a great job back then and they still do.

          Comments about Gamma X-2 Stringing Machine:

          I purchased this to teach my son to string his own rackets. He has been playing a lot and wanted to try to offset the cost of going back and forth to the local store. After 4-5 rackets, and with the help of youtube and the instructions, he got the hang of it. He now can try out new strings with less costs.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Prompt delivery as promised.

            Casual use.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Was short the instructions and no string was included. Called and they said I'd have in two days. Called three days later and they said someone forgot to pass it on. Finally got the string 4 more days later. Not one single person expressed an apology in any way shape or form. Good system but I'd get it from somewhere else.

              Comments about Gamma X-2 Stringing Machine:

              This is a great stringer for the price! I struggled with whether the fixed clamp stringer would be worth the extra $ but I'm happy that I went with this one. I'm a 4.0 player so I do not think I would even notice any difference in tension inaccuracies that may result from "floating" clamps. It takes me about an hour to string a racket and since i don't break strings fast enough to get really efficient at it I don't think I can do it any faster.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was prompt and well communicated that this is drop shipped directly from the manufacturer. The only confusion was that the sample strings and instructions are delivered separately from the stringer itself so don't panic like I did.
