    I just ordered a new Revo 4000 off of ************* and am so psyched to get it. It'll be here in a day or two and was just wondering how much different it will be switching from a low grade electric Eagnas to a high end table top crank.

    Eagnas is not notoriously well like for the quality of their machines. On the other hand Alpha is well liked for the quality of their machines.

    I don't think you will be disappointed in any way.

    I've seen your videos and really appreciated them. I was stuck on between the EAG-300 and the Revo as you may remember. When some extra money came in I knew I should get a Revo then and that's what I did. Your videos were an extra push towards the Revo as I noticed how effortlessly you used your machine. Thanks alot.

    Does the machine have a turntable lock? The only reason I ask is because I'm going to be stringing a few O3's every month.

    Call Mark @ New Tech Tennis directly. If they don't have them in stock, no one does as all the on-line retailers "drop ship" from Alpha.

    The on pictured on the web site is different than the one they sell now (turn table, towers, side posts, etc.) but when you buy you may be getting the "new" one that everyone else gets. Even the one on the Alpha web site is different from what people have been getting.

    Is the one I would be getting "better" than the one pictured?

    To rephrase that, would it be the one that was on the TW website and g o l f s m i t h.

    The one on TW is taken down, I guess because it is sold out ATM. But, if it's like the GS one (which is like the one on the Alpha web site) then the only difference, that I can see, is the side mounts.

    I see, are both of those versions of the same quality?

    I finally got an email from Mark today and he told me that a small shipment is coming in tommorow and I'm on the list to get one from this shipment! Man I'm glad I waited and didn't decide to go with Eagnas.

    Interesting statement, but what is your basis?

    Personally I would much rather have an Eagnas 6500 than a table top Revo for the same money. The 6500 has a much better mounting system and you get a stand for the same money.

    With the Revo 4000 you get a high resale value and fantastic customer support that is unparalleled by any other company.

    No matter what machine you purchase, usually resale is about 60% to 70% of the original price. Hope you enjoy the Revo, it is a decent machine. For as CS, in 9 years, I have called CS once, got the part I needed in a week.

    Revo 4000 if you keep it in good condition you can look at almost MSRP as it is always in back order.

    Same for me. Mark and the guys at Alpha are a pleasure to work with. The few questions I've had about the Revo, I've received an answer in less than an hour.
