    Help me and perhaps others to decide.
    I'm thinking about getting an ECO with fixed clamps and wondered...
    what's the big difference between the MS 200 ECO and the MS 200 TT, and is it worth the extra $140.
    Is the TT really worth the extra $$ for the 'smart weight tensioning' system, since that seems to be the main if only difference between the two?
    The prices for the machines are: $640 and $780 respectively.
    Both would have the DA Fixed clamps.
    Opinions please.
    Thanks[/b]

    i had the same dilema a couple weeks ago, and i called laserfibre to see what what the difference. The smart weight tensioning looks like it's on both machines.... i think it's just the drop weight. But the difference is the sensory jaw system and the mounting. The Eco's mounting is fine, but the TT's just better. The extra 140 would depend on if your willing to sacrifice a little bit of time, a little bit of energy to raise the bar, and pay a more for a better mount. You have to look at the laserfibre's pictures REALLY carefully... i think the marketing department that did this website is quite sly.... they used the TT pics in the eco section to focus on the main parts that are similair to the eco but it's not the eco. lol. good luck.

    when I bought my MS200TT late last year, the prices were a little lower, the spread between it and the ECO was narrower, and the ECO was back-ordered for at least several weeks. I went with the TT (DA clamps) and I've been very, very happy with it. It's very easy to use, it's heavy and well-made, and the mounting system gives you a a secure, comfortable feeling about your racquet.

    yes, one photo is worth a little deception

    Yes, I even mentioned to Tim S. at LaserF that the photo of the ECO shows the flyng clamps as though they were on the beam of the base and not lose as suppose to be. The photo of the ECO was a little misleading.
    He also said that if I were thinking to get the Eco with the fixed clamps I really should jump up and get the TT since it is a better total system for not that much more.
    If I'm not doing that many rackets...just yet, I wonder if it warrants the extra$140.
    I guess one good point of the TT is that it does hold a good value if I decide to resell it later.
