Does anyone know about this machine?

It is a siboasi machine. They are cheap and the quality is not good. Pros pro has also sime machines from this factory
Thanks for the info..
Could you tell me a bit more about the stringing machines, though I'm a fan of Badminton tech, I don't really know much about them.... Maybe they're called something else in my region?
Any updates to this thread?
Please suggest budget electronic stringing machine.
If you read the forum, you'll find everything you need to know...
This post origin is 2009.. trying to check if there are any good machines under 500$ and strings up to 32lbs.. please suggest!
I guess I can share my thoughts of getting a stringing machine in this thread, and not a start a new one. I have a long-time experience of stringing rackets of my own and players of my work place with a very simple stringing tool. This tool is rather slow and not able to get tensions over 10 kg.
Now I have been planning to get a proper stringing machine with another player in our club. After reading different web-pages and discussions in this forum, I have figured out two possible solutions for my case. The planned budget is about 600€.
First interesting tool would be Stringway MS140LS, while being portable it would be easy to transfer between the place of mine and the other club player.
The second option would be good quality dropweight machine like Superstringer T90. This could be later updated with Wise-tensioner if interest for that. Something worrying is the about 22 kg mass that should be transferred occasionally between two places.
I hope, there are people available that can comment my ideas of these two possible stringing machines.
The Stringway is the best choice for the transports, and the Superstringer is the best choice for a propper stringing machine...
Easy choice if you think about what to have the machine for!
I am in the US and am looking to buy a stringing machine (for badminton) that costs less than ~$500, preferably much less. I am fine with 2 or 6 points, preferably the latter. People I have talked to thus far seem to suggest a progression ll 602 or a used progression ll 602 FC, but others have stated that those are intended for tennis so that to use them I would need to buy supports and clamps from other sources, putting them outside my price point. I really don't know much on the topic so any suggestions or insights are much appreciated.
You will have to settle for a crank or dropweight type machine, but yes.
Something like a Pro's Pro would fit the bill.
But he wrote that he want a good machine. Pro´s Pro is the lowest quality on the market - together with siboasi, followed from eagnas/lillylee
All Gamma machines including Progression II or X6 (FC or not) are badminton ready. You don't need to buy anything else to start stringing. To be honest, around $500 in the US, there are not many choices for quality machines. You can choose between Gamma Progression II, X6 (no FC, add $100 for FC) or Alpha Pioneer PC Plus with FC. These are all 6-point support, 5-year warranty so pretty safe to buy. 2-point support machines are much cheaper but not safe to string badminton rackets.
Of course Tennisman has quality machines as well but shipping cost from Europe would kill the deal.
Pro's Pro is considered undesirable because it's not very user friendly, and the side supports are a nightmare to work with. However, it's still a solid machine that does the job. It's not going to bend or break, or deliver subpar stringjobs (compared to other dropweights at least).
Yes, it's low quality compared to other machines, hence why it is cheaper. But it is still a viable choice if price is a priority.
I still use the good old eagnas. Last me about 20 years already. Lucky I dont have maintenance issue. It already strung thousands of rackets and still going. Wahaha.
Really cheap and good.
I have bought years ago a pros'pro challenger 2, second hand, for 50€, I took away the shitt* fixed clamps and the clamp base, the strange blocker on the lever too, away taken, bought chudeck's side supports and have strung 150 racquets with my flying clamps with good results.
I did pretty much the same. Didn't come with fixed clamps, but got rid of the blocker, and instead of replacing the side supports I just bolted them to the arms so they aren't loose.
Some time ago on the forum there was a post about a deforming base plate on a stringing machine. When thinking about my machine I just can't even imagine that happening. It's all heavy metal parts. Nothing about the mounting mechanism will ever bend or break.
People can complain about pro's pro, but it's the design that's subpar, the construction is rock-solid.
