Will be coming out sometime soon. Anyone have any info?
Yes, its an evolution of the current machine. It has an improved turntable, 6/12 posts, and better functioning tension head unit

You mean the Head TE-3300? Looks like an Alpha Ghost clone...
Both Head and Alpha come out of the same factory; made by Ex-Three. They also make the machines for Dunlop, Prince, Solinco, and the Yonex Precision 5. So not really a clone, more Head's input into what is available from the manufacturer. Of all the machine made by Ex-Three, only Head seems to be evolving the design.

it is a great machine, easy to use and easy to maintain (with limited tech support globally).
I strung my rackets with the latest update, in KB, back in September and was a super easy transition from my machine at home..

In the UK its £4000. Head machines werent available in the US; but maybe thats changed or changing.
Solinco machines have made their way to the US. They have the same gripper style as the Head machine. Not sure if they are actually being sold yet or just a few one-offs that were sold after tournaments.

Same manufacturer; Ex-Three.

Of all the Ex-Three machines; I'd have the newest Head machine

TW Australia has it on their site. $8490 AUS D. Roughly $6000 USD. That seems a bit much for a name brand, tool drawer and minor upgrades. I don't see any additional features or functions over the Ghost 2.

Are there any benefits to the more expensive machines vs a tourna 700-es? Almost settled on getting the tourna but do like how the head machine looks.
