    The word on the Eagnas clamps used to be that PN1002, which was an upgrade on some of their machines, was a good clamp. Haven't heard of any feedback on the newer ones.

    I've got the PN1002 clamps on my flex 740. They seem to work good so far. They have a rough texture on them, something I've heard people criticize, but I've never damaged string noticably from overclamping. The adjustible thumb knob works great and there's some small allen key adjustments I've never had to use for parallelness. I can see how some of these have the problem of coming loose with just a touch. A minor grinding down on the one spot on the handle where it contacts the clamp would correct this in that case.

    For $35, how can you lose? Oh, it's Eagnas... and their service... Umm, flip a coin then.

    Actually, try to make sure they have it in stock before getting it. Everything should work out then.
