    :D were gonna get a revo4000 w/wise tension head and i was just wondering what yall think is the best for ur money for like $1000....a neos perhaps?? me and my dad were were considering that one

    we're gonna be stringing not really for ourselves (because me and my bro dont pop strings too often;) ) but for our friends,other customers, and at tournaments when the pro shops are closed lol =]

    thx for ur help in advance =]

    Do you want a table top or a stand alone machine? Either is a great option. I have the previous model of the Neos, and it works great (I also have the Wise)...but if I was buying again, I might go Gamma 6004, or ???.

    Table top - the Revo would be my first choice.

    Yep, you just have to evaluate your needs. If portability is a question, you'll need to get a table top. In the $1000 range, you have a lot of options. You can go with the revo + wise, or you can go with something like the Progression ESII+. It's a good machine, I now work on it at my work place. We used to use the NEOS. Both machines have their merits. I personally would like a NEOS mounting and brake system with swivel clamps. A linear electronic gripper (Wise head or similar) would be nice.

    Me Is Bored - I most likely will be selling this exact setup. Let me know if you are interested in purchasing it from me?

    You oughta consider that, Me Is Bored. flash9 has a pretty sweet looking machine and I'll bet he could show you to the some nice pictures of it if he were of a mind to. ;)

    Hey, flash9, if something different is on the horizon for you, I hope you'll be willing to share some photos. :)

    You can always keep me posted via e-mail, if you want to update me on anything (that is, if you consider it any of my business in the first place). ;)

    I sent you an email to the address you listed earlier. Did you get it?

    Both parts of the machine is one year and one month old, and in excellent condition. You can see pictures here, and I can send more pictures with exactly what you will be receiving.

    I guessed the weight as 50lbs for both, UPS Ground from NC to TX would be about $50. I can calculate the exact amount, once I weight everything tonight, and if you email me your exact zip code.
