Is the Wise 2086 the only aftermarket electronic tension head?

    I'm considering purchasing a Wise 2086, but before I do so I'd like to see if it's the only model available. Does anyone know of another aftermarket electronic tension head?

    Also, what might the pros and cons of the Wise 2086 be? I will be using it with my Eagnas Combo 910. BTW, my machine has worked great so far, but I have the advantage of living near their warehouse and have made a couple of trips by there to swap/fix some parts.

    As always, I greatly appreciate the information posted on this board!

    Thanks,
    Chris

    It is not the only one, but it is the best option for the price. Herb can be a little pain in the backside, with some warrantee issues. But the tension head is pretty decent.

    Mutual Power used to sell one. Since you live near the Maxline/Eagnas warehouse, you can ask if they sell one. I've asked them and they do. However, the add ons by Eagnas and Maxline are all rotational grippers.

    Thanks LittlElvis, I've already asked Victor about putting one of their electronic tension heads on my machine, but it won't work. Victor says the base plate is wrong. And to tell the truth, judging by how many of them I've seen sitting around the warehouse in various stages of repair/assembly, I don't think I'd want one.
