Eagnas Smart 6000
Eagnas Smart 6000

Evaluations of the Eagnas Smart 6000:

Michael, July 14, 2006:

   Place of purchase:Maxline (Eagnas)

   Date of purchase:2004

   Warranty: N/A

   Price: $1000


Upright electronic, linear constant pull tensioning system, 2 quick-lock swivel clamps, 6 point mounting, 360 degree rotation, numeric keypad in both pounds and kilos


As a USRSA MRT and professional tournament stringer, I have had experience using many machines, including the most expensive Babolat models. I purchased the 6000 to test its effectiveness against the top electronic models. The Smart 6000 strings consistently and has maintained durability over the last 2 years (about 800 racquets strung). Comfort and ease of stringing are very good and allow for both the amateur and professional stringer to utilize the machine's functions. The clamps work effectively and grip well with simple adjustment knobs. Mounting is relatively simple and when racquets are mounted loosely in the 6-point system they remove quite easily. The only two drawbacks of the 6000 are a poorly located tensioning button, and lack of pulling speed variations. Those subtle flaws aside, I have yet to come accross an electronic machine that compares in functionality and ease of use for $1000. In my opinion the Smart 6000 stands as an excellent buy. (Note to potential buyers: Keep in mind that daily maintenance on a stringing machine is the best way to insure long life) Good luck with whatever machine you choose!
