    ... and Gamma and Alpha post their manuals online. Anyway, I only payed $250 for the machine, so I wasn't about to spend $20 on some paper.

    I think I got a copy of the Flex 940 manual somewhere around here. I was about to suggest how to fix the wobble on the 940 but Adles seems to have fixed it on his own.

    $250 is about the average price for the machine. That was close to what I paid for mines. There was one selling for $300 near me, recently.

    Has anyone had any positive experiences with the Eagnas Combo 3800? It's an amazing deal at $889 for an electronic stringer with a Digital electronic control panel with keypad and LCD digital display.

    I called the website and jokingly said that this was a too good to be true deal and the guy went off on me telling me that I should be calling with technical questions only. He said their machines get bad rep because the other US manufacturers wants them to look bad. Now after talking to him, I am not sure. If they don't have the decency to carry out a civil conversation with me, how can I trust them?

    But I have purchased an Alpha Pioneer DC plus and I hate it after having it for two days. I still haven't figured out how to tension with a drop weight. So I have to return this and go for a crank or something higher end.

    If you look at the posts you will see basically their customer service is horrible. I've had my machine used $300 for over 2 years and I really like it but calling them is a horrible experience experience. I would never buy anything from them.

    haha, Victor is a funny character. i would only buy a manual machine from eagnas, but if you're willing to spend $900, i'd perhaps spend a little more and you have a few more options, even a wise head on a table top dropweight can be a solid option.

    Yeah the way he went off on me and was offended by a comment was funny.

    So you're saying: upgrading my Alpha Pioneer DC plus with a Wise Head will result in a better product than the Combo 3800? It's gonna be about the same cost eventually. I'm just curious why do you think the Combo 3800 isn't a good investment? Have you personally used one and had problems with it?

    I added the Wise and it was a good move.

    I have not used it, no. I did have a combo 910 for awhile.

    if you add a wise head to your alpha, you can then be on the lookout for a used standup machine, neos or whatever and move your wise to that eventually having a sweet machine but all along doing just fine.

    Your DW should also work just fine, but if you're set on upgrade I would highly consider the wise route.

    Why do you need/want an electronic machine? How many racquets do you string/week?
