You have a great machine. Even the Half-Volley is one of the best built, feature laden machines out there -- and totally upgradable according to my recollection. I will definitely be going with a Playmate when I replace the old SP. The SP has been reliable and has done its job, but in hindsight I wish I had spent the extra money for the Half Volley.
