    Hi guys,

    Is there a big difference regarding the tension holding between the Eagnas flying clamps and the hiqua flying clamps? I am aware that there are many reviews that the eagnas floating clamps are not as good. Why?

    HiQua
    Pros: higher quality. holds tension to 30lb+ looks better
    Con: heavier (tension could be off by 0.1~0.2 lb) more expensive
    Eagnas
    Pros: lighter, cheaper, clain to have diamond dust coat.
    Con: holds tension up to 30lb. quality could be an issue (unless you can be there to hand pick, I got 1 that is not perfectly alligned and have to return it).

    uhm, I've been using Eagnas Clamps since I bought the machine last month. It works pretty good for me so far. The price is not alot cheaper than HQ though ($15, compare with $20 for HQ)

    I'll try HQ in the near future, to see any different

    I have four HQ Clamps for the mains and two Yonex Clamps for the crosses.

    I returned my Eagnas Clamps, they were not nearly as good.

    Dear Peter the Great,

    May I ask why Panda need 3 YY fly clamps? I can under stand 4 HiQua clamps are 1 for each hand and foot. 2 YY clamps for each hand. But 3? That is off balance...:confused::confused::confused: Are you asking Panda to do tricks?

    Dear Never Gooder Panda,

    I will bring 1 back if you realy really realy need it.

    Now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free
    I would not listen, I did not know how
    Perhaps I'll listen now

    Dear Big Panda Baby,
    I love to see you and Pete together. However, my flight and my brother's baby will come later than this weekend...

    Dear LB,
    I have too many gifts to carry already. Some for Panda and some for others. So I will just string the hell out of Panda's new toy...

    They are very good for clamping flies.
    I like to use them for crosses. I use HiQua for mains because it is narrower.
