    That one looks a lot like the Silent Partner Swing, although with a linear gripper instead of a drum, so maybe it's a bit better than the Swing. The Swing used to get a lot of love on these boards as a compromise, with better clamps than the X-2, a clutch that the Klipper lacked, and a slightly better mounting system than either. I bought a Swing years ago and have never had a problem with it.

    But this is Eagnas. It might be a good, basic machine, perhaps from the same factory that put out the Swing, but all the talk I've seen of Eagnas' poor customer service scares me away from them.

    Or would it be more worth it spend some more to get the DEN-3600, GE II or a Hawk 40. I dont want to spend more than than 180 but if it is realy worth it I could get one of those. Also are there any other brands I should consider?

    ya I have seen that in alot of the boards but I feel like silent partners are always hard to find but Im probably looking in the wrong places.

    With Silent Partner, I think you're on your own because they don't make them anymore. If you think Eagnas' reputation with their own customers is bad, the way they treat customers of discontinued competitors is far worse. They even say that in their website!

    Your best chances with Eagnas are probably with simple machines like the one you are looking at.

    OP: If I were you, I would get the new Klipper. It's made in the U.S. and has lifetime warranty. Most of the time sellers on the bay mentioned about the warranty but failed to mention that warranty is good for original owner only.

    The Hawk 26 has 4 extra supports like the Silent Partner Swing. Seems like a good feature for $20 more.

    You can have my almost new Klipper for $100 if you live close to Ohio. I received a present of a used Eagnas 910 just after buying the Klippermate. I love my 910 and it works great but would never in my life ever buy anything from the company after dealing with them several times. Worst customer service I ever experienced. I cannot comment on which machine because I have only owned these two.
    The Klipper service was fantastic as I called the owner 5 times while stringing my first 3 rackets and he walked me through everything and told me to call him as often as I needed.
