It’s worth finding out what these machines can and cannot do before you buy one. Let’s take a look…

The Gamma X-ELS stringing machine offers good value for home stringers. Being electronic you get a lot of advantages over a spring tension winder or drop weight machine. It’s an affordable stringing machine which is still portable. You can place it on a table yet still lift it and move it around if you need to. You can also easily put it in a vehicle when you want to. The machine weighs around 45 lbs.
This tennis stringing machine utilizes an electronic constant pull tensioner with an 11lb to 90lb tension range. It is a six point mount system with a diamond dust coated rotating gripper, dual action fixed clamps and an optional foot actuated tensioner switch.
Electronic Tennis Stringing Machine vs Electric Tennis Stringing Machine
It should be noted that the Gamma X-ELS is an electronic constant pull tensioner tennis stringing machine. It is not an electric tennis stringing machine.
The electronic system for tensioning is superior to the electric system. This is because the electric tennis stringing machines do not always provide accurate tensioning because as you tension each string the tension can vary due to fluctuations in the local electricity supply.
In comparison, electronic tennis stringing machines, like the Gamma X-ELS and Gamma Progression II ELS, utilize a load cell and microcontroller to set/sense the tension. This type of tennis stringing machine is far superior in quality and accuracy and should always be preferred to an electric stringing machine.
The Gamma X-ELS is an entry level electronic tennis stringing machine. It is still a table top model (meaning it is not a professional-type of stringing machine which comes with its own stand) and is therefore cheaper than the other electronic stringing machines in the Gamma range. Because it is a table top model you can still use this machine as a portable stringing machine.
Electronic makes it faster to string
The advantage of this stringing machine is that it doesn’t need manual tensioning of each string which makes it faster and more accurate. And it is a lower price than the professional electronic stringing machines to save you money. It even offers a foot pedal for hands-free operation of the tensioning mechanism. Again this makes stringing faster and easier.
The difference between the Gamma X-ELS and the Gamma Progression II ELS is that the Gamma X-ELS has two spring loaded self latching storage drawers (one large and one small drawer) for tools in addition to a tool tray whereas the Gamma Progression II ELS only has a tool tray.
There is only about $30 difference between the two models. So it’s really a matter of personal preference. Since you’ll be using your stringing machine for many years $30 is not going to make much difference over the long term. Decide whether you would use the drawers.
The Gamma X-ELS offers a professional stringing machine without the large price attached to most professional machines. Once you start to consider the tennis stringing machines which costs thousands you also get an automatic stringing length measuring counter. However if you can cope with doing a manual measure of the number of meters you need to string your racquet then you are getting almost everything else you would want from an electronic stringing machine such as the Gamma X-ELS. The big advantage of the Gamma X-ELS is that it comes at a very reasonable price for the same features as the more expensive electronic models.
