    I am probably in the minority here because so many people love the Revo, but I think the Eagnas Flex 940 is the better value. The Revo has spring assisted base clamps, and the Flex 940 has cone lock base clamps. Also, the Revo has a thicker table. Advantage Revo.

    The Flex 940 has a better table lock. I would rather have a machine on the stand, and the Flex is cheaper. Advantage Flex 940.

    I've used both and I though the Flex 940 was the better value. You won't go wrong with either one.

    Revo is better.... Much better.
    I find the Revo to have a much better build quality than the Eagnas Flex 940.

    The answer that most people are going to give is the Revo, simply because Eagnas has a bad name on these boards.

    That being said, I personally think the 940 is the better value. It's what, 200 bucks cheaper, are both 6 pt cranks. The 940 comes with the stand while the Revo is a tabletop. The Revo is backed by outstanding customer service, but the Eagnas isn't. The MAIN thing that may drive you away is the lack of cs from Eagnas. However, the odds of getting a good machine from Eagnas are in your favor with this particular machine.

    Some people are willing to risk getting a bad machine and not being able to do anything about it.
    However some like me are willing to spend extra to have the customer support just to clear our mind when we go to bed.
    Customer support is very important, especially with items like stringing machines that should last for many years.
