    Most likely because you will RARELY have to buy any.

    Because if you need the parts you have to get it..... as long as it's cheaper to get the parts than it is to buy a comparable machine, you'll do it.

    What everyone else says PLUS the quality of those parts is pretty much unsurpassed.

    Young Pete,

    Just curious. What parts did you have to purchase and what did they cost? I have had my Neos for over 6 years and haven't had to purchase any parts or even do any maintenance. Have only strung around 800 racquets with it though.
