Questions/Concerns about the Gamma 6004

#1
Searching online, I found various versions of this machine, differing in terms of:
- L / V Shoulder Mounts
- straight / curved clamp tracks
- different clamps
- even different clamp bases (on Gamma-Europe website)

My question is, if I order one of these machines today, which version will I receive?

I sent an email to Gamma a few days ago, but so far did not get a reply.
I know they used to have a rep on these forums, so I decided to post here.

Also, if anyone bought one of these machines recently, I'd love to hear your experience.

Yesterday I decided to give it one more try and send another email to Gamma support.
I asked the same question as in the above post.
This is the reply I got from Gamma:

"The only difference in these two machines, is the mounting system. There really isn’t any major benefit in the 2 point model, over the 6 point model, except that the 2 point model will mount the racquet a little faster and is less likely to block grommet holes.
Thanks!
Drew Warren"

Wow.
Somebody give this guy a promotion, or at least a big x-mas bonus this year.

Happy with mine. It's about 5 years old or so. Straight tracks, 6 point mount.
I've added a Wise. Got the newer V shoulder mounts (didn't make much difference, but nicer).

I've done some research on it, and it looks like a nice machine.

My only concern (other than the price) is with the aluminum table/lack of steel clamp tracks.
I've seen comments, and a video, of people complaining that the aluminum table bends fairly easily under tension.
Have you experienced that as well?

If it doesn't bend for Shroud it won't bend for anyone.

Unless you get a really old machine you will get C supports (aka V supports,) curved tracks, and 5 tooth clamps. You will also get a self centering turntable and the upgraded table lock system. @Gamma Tech correct me if I am wrong.
