    Hey guys as some of you may know i'd be looking to get the fake laserfibre machine. I put my order in for a Revo 4K but a tennis pro brought me a Neos to use for awhile. So Mark from Alpha told me that my spot is comin up and asked if i still need it. Since I wont be I was wondering if any of you want my spot. Just lemme kno 1st person to want it gets it.

    You know that is not how it works. If you decline, the next person in line will take the machine.

    well yeah obviously. I just figured someone here would be wanting to get one without having to wait a month. If nobody wants the spot I'll just cancel the order. I'm sorry if this type of thing is frowned upon in these forms. Usually in other forms i've been a part of there are perks to being a member. Such as things like this. just offering and tryin to help talk tennis members out.

    It is not necessary frowned upon but it is about giving everyone equal opportunity. The person behind you in line waited in line for a long time and deserve to receive the Revo. The person will not be able to take your spot in line under any circumstances.

    Smarion, why don't you give up your spot to the next person in the waiting list? Then that person can get what he wants and give up his spot to the next person in the list. And the next, and the next, and everybody in the list moves up one spot. See how waiting lists work?

    The right thing to do is give up your spot...or you could become the first tennis stringing machine scalper - buy it and see if you can sell it for more than you paid.

    Happens every Christmas with the hottest toy, supply and demand...Just give up your spot, let someone else enjoy the machine...

    Basically, what he's saying is that you buy it from him predelivery, he buys it from Alpha, then has it shipped to you. It's his right. If you want one bad enough and can't wait, take advantage of it. But, you might not get a warranty or possibly other perks of buying new.

    well this thread has caused alot more comotion then I thought it would. I really have no plans on scalping a machine or making money on it in anyway. I was just looking to help out some fellow talk tennis members and thought I would have got a responce pretty quick, Guess not didnt wanna keep Mark waiting any longer so i cancelled the order.
