    I have an eagnas flex 940. Great machine but if your budget is that good than I would take one of their higher end machines. My flex 940 is pretty good but it doesn't have spring assisted clamps which are better than cone-lock. My recommendation, if you want to buy an eagnas machine, is the smart 6000. It will make stringing a breeze and if you have a lot of racquets one day, it will be very easy and fast. My customer service with them was great. No problems. On top of that you get a reel of perfect spin string, which you can use to practice if you want. I did on a couple of racquets but I saved the rest for customers.

    Try using some punctuation and "speak" a little less casually so we can actually make out what you're saying.

    the post above makes no sense to me.

    First of all, I do not own this brand, but I am looking at features of this brand,and what I would choose if I was limited to this brand.
    If you were to string 3 racquets/ day, and you want to go with an Eagnas model because of $, I would go with the Plus8000, for $1295.00, as it does have a great # of features at a good price. It would make stringing more a pleasure, providing that you got a good functioning machine.
    If thats too much $, then I would go with the smart 6000, at $899.00,with that model, you have to adj. each side support individually, rather than both automatically,so it would only take a little extra time to mount the racquet, but would still have some nice features. The spring assisted base clamps makes the job much easier.
    I really can't tell you much on the quality of Eagnas, seems they copy most others out there, and sell at a lower fee.(I would hope the electronics are good, and I wonder if tension pulls accurate like the origionals that they copy?) I was just listing what would be a good model with features for the $. depending what you can afford, since you asked about this brand.
    Also, beware some have had problems with their customer service, and others were OK with this. If you get a good machine then you will be all set. Seems most of the complaints that I heard over time was with their lower end machines,another good reason to stick with a higher end one .Good luck!

    Based on 3 racquets per day, the smart 6000 will pay itsself off in no time. I would get that because it has great features and it will help u in the long run. It will last longer than other machines and it has nice features for such a nice price. If I were you, I would take this. Just my opinion though....

    If you can go to the eagnas factory i heard they were a lot better with the quality of machine. I think it is in California but i may be wrong.

    I can't talk from experience but I would think that they both give the "same" string jobs.
    the differences look to be aimed at durability and ease of use/convenience.

    I may be wrong but the differences don't seem to suggest that the 940 will give more consistent string jobs
