Overview

The Spinfire Flame is the premium drop weight machine in the Spinfire range and improves on the Spark by offering fixed clamps and 6 points of support on the mounting system. This machine also includes a linear gripper, the preferred gripping mechanism for professional stringers. The split weight allows the machine to string tennis, squash and badminton racquets.

Linear Gripper:

Linear grippers allow the stringer to simply and easily attach the string to the pulling mechanism without any need to wind it or bend it which can cause damage to the string.

Adjustable leveling:

Drop weight machines require the bar to be horizontal when pulling a string, however, in practice this is not always easy to do. This machine includes an adjustment ratchet allowing the stringer to easily level the bar, saving valuable restringing time.

6 points of support:

This machine utilizes a 6 point mounting system which supports the frame fully and prevents warping or damage. These can be micro-adjusted allowing you to secure the frame tightly without damaging it.

Tool Tray

The tool tray has plenty of room for all the necessary tools.

Portability

For stringers who travel to tournaments or simply don’t have free space to permanently work from, this machine can easily be lifted and moved without much effort.

Clamps:

Their clever design provides extra finger room when releasing the lever and the adjustment knob has been recessed into the clamp to allow both clamps to get closer together. The machine comes standard with tennis clamps. Stringers wanting badminton/squash clamps can purchase them separately or choose them instead of tennis clamps. The base clamps are spring loaded to make releasing quick and easy.

Warranty:

The Spinfire Flame comes with a 2 year warranty on parts and labor.

Options:

Spinfire offer the following optional extras:

Badminton/squash clamps – These smaller clamps allow you to work in tighter spaces and are a must for badminton and squash stringers.

  1. Anthony .

    I had learnt how to restring on an Spinfire so I decided to purchase the same machine due to the familiarity of using this Stringing machine and I have to say this version has better clamps which make a huge difference compared to the older version .
    A very easy piece of equipment to use.

  2. Shane

    I bought this machine a few weeks ago and have found it to be extremely easy to use, it’s as solid as they come with a great mounting system and awesome clamps. I had not used a drop weight before, so my first attempt was a little off tension, but after learning how to correctly go about pulling tension, and testing the tension with the calibrator, I’m confident that the machines tension is quite accurate. It’s well worth the extra money for the base clamps.

  3. Sam

    Great machine, very good value for money! Pays for itself in no time.

  4. Cam Hastie

    This machine has been great, I’m a novice stringer, and only ever plan to do small volumes (just family and friends for a home court). This sturdy simple machine is easy to learn to use. It has opened up a whole new way for me to enjoy my tennis. I can now tweak each racquet with a custom stringing job. Brilliant!

  5. Kurt

    The machine does exactly what it’?s supposed to do, and that is to string a tennis racquet very easily with the same precision of any professional machine, by allowing enough time.
    I am very happy with my choice and would buy this machine again since the cost/benefit ratio is very good

  6. Pierre

    If anything I find it a bit heavy and I am missing a system that would lock the rotation of the racquet. It’s probably just me and of course I still recommend it.

  7. Rachel

    I can take it anywhere

  8. Helo

    Great machine but had to look at a few videos online of other machines to get started (a better handout or link to a Youtube video wuold be very helpful for a 1st timer). Now that I have the basics down, very easy to use. The string gripper clutch is easy to use but can ghost the string a bit so perhaps a different gripping mechanism may be slightly better but overall very happy with my purchase.

  9. Johnny

    Easy to use, convenient and portable. All springs and bearing are smooth. Once you’ve learn how to re-string rackets and done a handful of rackets, its a very good machine.

  10. Sunkyu

    Very good, thanks! !

  11. Tariq

    This machine is very good value for what you pay. After using this for several months I’m still happy with my purchase.

  12. Steve

    Easy to use and very compact. Seems to be good quality, especially the drop clamps

  13. Rodney Pearce

    The machine itself is quite sound. I have started to prefer the drop weight machine over a mechanical spring release for several reasons. The racquet supports are particularly good.
    However, the flying clamps are currently damaging string (being used for badminton) without them being too tight in general. The damage doesn’t occur on each clamp but once or twice per racquet. On checking with a friend with the same machine, he had to fiddle with his clamps a bit to get them to leave strings undamaged so it can be done, it’ll probably take some fiddling. He makes the suggestion that they can appear to be clamping when actually the string is being held as is being cut into slightly. In the meantime I used floating clamps and no issues with that, it’s just less convenient in a few ways.

    So, all in all, I think 4 stars is warranted. Generally happy. I’ve never really had a perfect clamp either, unfortunately.

    I love this stringing machine! its so easy to use and i got my head around it after the first stringing. The price is affordable as well!
