Review on Prince P7000 — Albert Murata, AM Stringing

Time to Review the Prince P7000!

Looking for a review on the Prince P7000? I’ve been using mine for the past five years, and I’ve got a lot to say about it!

After using my Babolat Star 4 for 20 years, I decided five years ago that it was time to upgrade. I would have kept my “old faithful” Star 4 – it was a workhorse! But I felt there was one missing feature that I needed for stringing at professional tournaments.

In my search for a stringing machine upgrade, I was naturally looking for another Babolat machine. However, I was fortunate enough to take a test drive on the latest P7000 stringing machine at the Prince Innovation Center.

I was truly impressed from the get-go!

Now, after owning my P7000 for five years, the “honeymoon” period — starting with that initial test drive — continues.
