    Is this a bad machine? I mean the price looks good and I have seen some great thread reviews about it.... Also does eagnas give free shipping?

    I'm interested in the shipping thing, but I highly doubt it. About Eagnas: they make lower quality machines and their customer service is subpar. In terms of low quality, I only mean the paint quality. The actual machines are quite solid. However, when Eagnas ships, it is not uncommon for you to get a refurbished machine, or for your new machine to be lacking parts. All in all, good machines, horrible customer service, and a very nice price. I'm actually planning to buy the DEN-3600, the Flex 160, or some other one. Their choices are too MANY!!!

    Quite a few posters here have said this is a good machine. It is a lot of machine for the money. From previous reviews, this is probably one of their better machines. I liked my Eagnas.

    The Eag-300 or the Plus 8000 (not sure model #, guessing) are the only two I'd take a chance on.

    there is a whole thread on the eag300. Go look it up. I do have one and I have strung 100+ rackets. Still going strong. But you do need to check the tension every now and then with a calibrator.

    Shipping is not included in the fee. I am guessing $50 - $75.

    It was a while since I last checked, but I thinkit's 80 for shipping (at least to Indiana). Could be wrong

    Found a place for the eagnas online shop and when I added it to the cart with a tension calibrator, it came out to $364 total. It had nothing about shipping and I pressed check out and it said I needed to make a new account. My guess is that there is free shipping?????

    Well, I guess I was wrong xD. I found my account (I used it solely for the purpose of seeing shipping costs of certain machines). Lttlelvis's guess includes the actual shipping cost: $50 [to indiana, anyways]. However, if ya want 2 day air, you might as well buy another machine, since it's like $232. Totals to about $410 with shipping

    yeah, do what you want... I'd say it's the only Eagnas worth a gamble, but it's still a gamble

    I just got the Combo 910. Everything is great and fairly smooth. The only issue was the disk break gap needed to be adjusted.

    Anyone think the swivel clamps on the flex 920 are worth more than the glide bar clamps on the eag-300???

    Just an update for my thread. My EAG 300 is still running excellent, over 500 frames strung on the same glide bar clamps the machine came with. And I only had to calibrate it 3 times. Hope this helps your decision. :)

    regards,

    Donnie

    Thanks, do you have any regrets on the machine? Is the flex 920 a better deal?

    No regrets at all. I would be a little concerned with the flex tho. The base is a thin sheet of metal. I think you should go with the 300 because alot of people are very happy with it.

    One thing to consider is the fact that you get three sets of clamps with the EAG-300. With good luck, you could string a few thousand racquets without having to buy new clamps.

    So glide bars basically owns swivel? But then why does every high end machine have swivel clamps?

    This might be a problem because my next door neighbor needs his racquet restrung and I said I would do it for him when I got a machine and it is the head t.i6. It's black and I think in the liquidation place on TW. So this would be a problem?

    Hey NadalFan, sorry I was gone the weekend this thread appeared.

    I would go with the Eag-300 over the Flex 920.

    I wouldn't say idiot proof. The glide bars can be hard to work. :wink: Also if you don't take proper care it can be a hassle.

    Hmm. I have used a Glide Bar and it really is easy but in the end I still like Swivel Clamps better.

    You would have to use Flying Clamps. Whether they are included, I don't know.

    no, you should use flying clamps, you can just minipulate the string into the clamp

    But it is even over the entire string bed. Stringing is about consistency more than anything.

    Well you gotta get some Flying Clamps so add about 60 to that. Don't get the eagnas they seem to be a piece of crap.
