    They're both essentially the same machine.

    I would say just get the ST-2 without the wise. Once you get the hang of using the crank you may not want to add a wise to it.

    However. I would go with a Wise linear pull over the rotational pull of the gamma. I am still very pleased at my WISE 2086 purchase. Although right now I got it on an eagnas challenger.

    Not sure of prices, but maybe look at Revo over the ST 2. Especially if you plan on adding a WISE.

    hollywood, or anyone that know the answer, I am planning on getting a challenger or a combo 710 plus a wise 2086. Which do you recommend and how did you install the wise on to the drop weight machine since they don't have the tension arm. Thanks in advance

    mounting system, turntable & clamps are the same. the bases are different. STII: ABS over an aluminum frame and X-ES: extruded aluminum with drawers in the base.
