    Last time I looked at it the price was 1299, that was around Christmas.

    Why not Prince NEOS 1000? Simplicity is good. Shouldn't we worry about the swivel clamp design in 6004 if we want to avoid post sales support as much as possible?

    The base clamps on the 6004 are one of the best in the industry. The string clamps can be replaced with other similar clamps. I have three sets of string clamps for my 6004.

    Gamma Cusomter Support is one of the best. With Prince you will need to deal with Tennis Machines, the authorized Prince repair center.

    The Prince NEOS 1500 is more comparable to the Gamm 6004.

    I agree with Faithfulfather. It's still definitely worth it. The 6004 is an excellent machine, even if the price has gone up a touch.

    And actually I think there might still be a place where you can get them at the lower price, but not certain.

    There are a few places that still have the old price, but you have to pay for shipping, which is about $75 or more. The price that TW has includes shipping, but it's drop shipped from Gamma.

    Yeah, I think that's true. Although, there is at least once place where shipping is dependent on your location (I think) and so it could be substantially less than $75, in which case, it might still be possible to get it (shipped) under $1350.
