Tecnifibre TF 8000 Stringing Machine

tecnifibre-tf-8000-stringing-machine.jpgThis is one of the "Big Kahunas" in the tennis racquet stringing world. It is used all over Europe and throughout the ATP Tour, including the French Open, Paris-Bercy, Berlin, Doha, and Marseille.

Why do many of the pro tournaments count on the Tecnifibre TF 8000? There are several reasons. One, the clutchable tension head allows you to pull a very short string. Two, it pre-stretches the string during tensioning - which is something professional stringing services look for.

Specifications:
Weight - 110 lbs/47kg
Length - 1050mm
Width - 560mm
Height - 360mm (adjustable)

Check out the Tecnifibre TF 8000 Stringing Machine.

Prince, Gamma & Technifibre Stringing Machines

Whether you're buying a stringing machine for personal or professional use, it is a sizable investment, so you should check out your options. Below are three solid machines, from three great brands, at three price points.

And although these are not cheap, David Bone at Tennis Magazine, lays out the return on that investment very well.

"For anyone who believes that buying a stringing machine is too expensive a proposition, consider this: If you string two racquets per month at a savings of $20 each (a conservative estimate), that's $480 a year. It's an investment serious players can't afford to miss...."

gamma.jpgGamma 5003
This is a manual machine, meaning it uses a hand crank. So it doesn't need electricity. This not only saves energy and money, it also means you don't have to be near an outlet to use it. If speed is a priority, get the two-point option (there's also a 6-point option). At around $900, this is a solid value. Check it out here.

Prince Neos 1000

This is a workhorse stringing machine. Like the Gamma, it's a manual machine, so you have to pull the tension yourself. Unlike the Gamma, it has a four-point mounting system that allows you to secure the frame with two pulls of the lever. An interesting and unique feature - the string clamps attach to the machine on movable glide bars, making them slightly faster. A great machine that runs about $1100 and has been used by pro stringers for many years. Check it out here.

Tecnifibre TF-7000

This is one of the big daddies of the stringing world, and runs $5,000+. But, it will definitely fill the bill for any stringer. It has very sophisticated stringing technology, an adjustable stand, and an optional cabinet for supplies. Its all electric - its all about pushing buttons not twisting and pulling. But check this out, it has a knot-tensioning function. Ever notice that when you tie a knot at the end of a piece of string, there's a section at the very end that doesn't get tension? Well, this puppy has a button that puts extra tension on the last string to compensate for the knot for a more consistent string job. Check it out here.

Dunlop M Fil 200
Ideally suited for players with aggressive, long strokes.
Recommended for the 5.0-7.0 NTRP level players. This racquet has Dunlop's M-Fil (Multi Filiament) Technology. Which to the technologically challenged includes: Carbon, S-Fibre and Magnesium are combined into the hitting zone of the racquet head to enhance the touch and feel of the racquet where and when you need it most = at the moment of ball contact.


Fischer GDS Vision
Best suited for players with shorter, compact strokes looking for power. Recommended for the 3.0-4.5 NTRP level players. The latest technology in vibration control! A specially calculated matrix structure harmonizes irregular vibration patterns and converts excess energy into higher velocity rebounds. The feedback in these rackets is unprecedented and tuned to perfection.


Head Flexpoint 4
Ideally suited for players with moderate, powerful strokes. Recommended for the 3.0-4.5 NTRP level players. Head's Liquidmetal material is applied to four strategic areas of the racquet’s head and it is the only material that utilizes all the energy your swing generates. No energy is lost on ball impact due to its liquid atomic structure.



Tecnifibre T Fight 315
Ideally suited for players with aggressive, long strokes. Recommended for the 4.5+ NTRP level players. Technifibre's Texalium technology, developed by Hexcel, is primarily used in the aircraft and spacecraft industries. This composite fiber with its specific weave pattern creates strength while being lightweight. Tecnifibre achieves desired benefits bt using Texalium reinforcements at key positions on the tennis racquet frame.


Volkl Tour 10 Gen II Mid Plus
Ideally suited for players with aggressive, long strokes.
Recommended for the 5.0-7.0 NTRP level players. The dense string pattern in the racquet's sweetspot ensures that power is controllable. Balls hit outside the sweetspot maintain optimal power and comfort thanks to the more open string bed. It also includes a two part racquet shaft and TechnoGel surrounded by EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate). This is visible technology you can actually see through the butt cap of the racquet. Designed to dampen vibration without sacrificing touch.
