Patrick,

Great Site!

I am interested in purchasing a new Electronic floor model, maybe the Gamma 6500 ELS or 5800 ELS. Do you recommend a 2pt or 6pt mounting system? Why do you feel one is better than the other?

I know that 6pt will provide the best support to the frame which is a good thing, but may block out some of the holes in the frame. The 2pt obviously provides the stringer a lot more frame access and I guess would cut down stringing time due to simplicity. Is the lack of side support on the 2pt machines something to be concerned about?

Thanks

Ed

on a 2 pt machine yes you do have easier access to the holes but it does but all the pressure on the 2 ends of the racket and thats it

 

with a 6 pt system the other 4 act as help to disperseso of the pressure to other parts of the racket to your not putting so much stress on the very ends, make sense ?????

 

also as a side note unless your string more than 20 rackets a week take your time when you string, so the mounting system really doesnt matter

 

hope this helped :)

Hi Ed, welcome to the site! I don't know much about stringers, but you should definitely post this question in the Group called Rackey Stringers Unite.
