    I just came across information about updated clamps, brake, and gripper on the Revo 4000. Does anyone have any experience with these new features? The new clamps look a lot like Gamma clamps. I'm trying to decide between the Revo 4000 and comparable Gamma machines. This new information has confused things.

    You can’t go wrong with Alpha. It’s the best bang for the buck at any level. Customer service is second to none.

    I have the old version.

    -The new base does look sturdier, but I never had a problem with mine and don't think I ever will.
    -Not sure what was wrong with the old linear gripper and again I never had any problems with mine.
    -New disc brake seems like a nice new feature if you need the brake. I only used the brake once when I strung a friends O3. I recall manually setting the brake was quite a pain.
    -I think the newer clamps are a nice upgrade. They're supposedly thinner and can get into 'tighter' spaces when clamping.

    I highly recommend the Alpha and and would definitely buy it again if given the choice. Seeing these new features make it that much better.

    Is there a stop on this machine so the crank doesn't hit the racquet?
