    Thinking of getting a Klip Pro G

    Anyone used these before? Have a few questions:
    What is the retail price for it and what would be a good price to pay for a second hand one?
    Can it be used for badminton and squash rackets?

    Appreciate your thoughts!

    Looks like the tape was put there to store all the tools in the tray.

    looks like a copy of the gamma progression ii 602 fc. it does have a small tray to store all the tools. so, that could be the reason why there is tape

    Never seen that machine before but I agree, it does looks like a Progression II 602 FC clone. How much is it being sold for?

    yeah, I may have to test it out there beforehand... nothing worse than getting home and finding out something doesn't work.

    Remove the tape as well once you meet up with the guy/gal.

    I think the tape is just hold the tools in the tray I would worry about that. No way that take could old the tensioner. That flying clamp in the tray looks like an old Tremont clamp.

    The tape was used during a house move. Turns out this machine can't do badminton unless you have an add on bracket which accomodates the smaller frame.

    Still not sure what would be a good deal on this machine price wise....

    The more I look at this machine the more it looks like the Gamma turntables. I don't know why this machine can't be used for badminton though

    Definitely throw a racquet on there, make sure that everything is in order and that the tape isn't there for a structural reason. I think 300 is too high though.

    Errr, in his area (If you are picking it up), there isnt much to locally pick up. Since she mentioned on her listing that price is negotiable, go to $200? If not, $225 should set the deal just fine.
