My one issue with it is the interface, and having to go into the menu to change from lbs to kgs, or to turn on pre-stretch, etc.

I've never used a Baiardo. Having the ergonomic function wouldn't really be something that I'm interested in at the moment, but then again I'm young and leaning over a machine for extended periods of time isn't something that bothers me or that I find uncomfortable.
Just curious about the diablo. The sensor has a high mounting fixture, not sure what it's called, but when the string is placed into the tension head, it pretty much is always at the same angle and straight. I haven't used a diablo before, but I thought the sensor's string guide was pretty simple and elegant design with out having to twirl the string around. Any comments?
