    Hey guys i had a tough choice between this machine and the REVO4k. I decided to go with the quantum and purchased one last week. After reading through the forums i noticed that most people received the free string, but never got the actual stringer. I was wondering if anybody here could put my mind at ease and post a review on the machine. Any input would be great.. THANKS!

    Good luck with this request. I haven't heard of one machine being delivered to date.

    I know.... I've been hoping someone has received one since the last post. I don't see how a company could have a product thats supposed to be really good but not actually ship any. I'm supposed to receive mine in one or 2 weeks so i'll be sure to update my experience and let everyone know when or if i ever receive my machine... In the mean time again if anybody has recieved one plz post...

    ...and in other news, the earth still resolves to reach the sun (some day).

    Sad, just sad. Not even Eagnas, goes this far.

    I was waiting for one last fall, I went with the Gamma 6004 in November and have since moved up to a Babolat Star 5. Get your money back and get another machine, any credit card company will refund you the money.

    Hey, guys, it's Quantum! Did you really expect to find it?
    If you have figure out where it is, it's already moved to another location.

    I like to think the best of people. Mise was to be mailed out by last Thurs or Friday at the latest. He said he was waiting on a local supplier for double action clamps. As of yet, nothing. At least you talked to someone...

    I am on the waiting list for October 2007 delivery - no contact since. They did not take my money though - only put me on a waitlist and said they would get back to me when the machines arrived.

    haha i know and since ive been reading on here about laserfibre i've been calling in a couple times a week just to see how everything is going. I think Tim is just a little bit over his head. I dont see why he would consistently lie to me. Oh well im still open to the possiblity that i'll just have to cancel my order and get a REVO. We'll see by next week i guess

    he said that the parts that looks green are actually like a gun metal black color. For some reason the light that came off it gave it that green type look.

    haha nopeee not yet... However I called today just like every other day to make sure Tim is on top of his game... I'm pretty sure hes getting pretty annoyed with me but oh well. He told me my machine was just finishing up assembly 2day and will be shipped on Monday and should recieve it no later then next week. It's coming from New York to Tampa so hopefully it dosnt take more then 5 days to ship.

    I don't want to be pessimisistic, but doesn't it seem weird that while he's talking to you about yours shipping so soon, there were others in line before you who still haven't received theirs yet?

    Are you kidding???!!!!! He said you'd receive it today!!!!! Also, it should take 2-3 days to arrive. i get packages from PA/NY to IL in 2 days using UPS ground (business days that is).

    What kind of business is he running?

    Lol! How can someone continually lie to customers like this and live with their conscience? He'd be wiser to tell the truth and just admit that no one will be receiving their machines any time in the near future.

    It's the same story over and over and over... I can't believe people are still ordering from this company.

    Anyone actually get their machines? By actually, I mean willing to post a pic with a spoon or today's newspaper with their machine.

    I've heard through the gr.apevine that secret operatives at LF have been observed planting pics around the Internet of the Quantum photographed with a spoon :shock:

    You wouldn't happen to have any of these incriminating pictures, would you?

    btw, I made a post asking TW to find out more info about Laserfibre Quantum.
    Still waiting for a response. Stop by the thread and post a reply if you are
    interested in TW getting to the bottom of things.

    Here's the thread:
    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=215887

    disclaimer: I do not work for Laserfibre or any of their competitors nor do I
    know anyone that works for Laserfibre or any of their competitors. It just
    seemed like it could be a cool machine but the word going around about it
    is scaring me a little bit.
