    Though my experience with eagnas wasnt very pleasant, still pretty pleased with my buy. When it first came, the tension head wasnt working, had to send it back to china, sg-> china -> sg, to get it fixed. The tension head was a freaking 15kg if i didnt remember wrongly, costed me another sgd$350 around. They took their own sweet time to ship back the machine, took about 3weeks then they shipped out again. Just received it yesterday. The machine came with lots of scratches and paint chips.

    But, well, just glad that the machine is working fine now.

    Strung a few rackets on it so far, very consistent stringbed. Great machine with superb value (IF i didnt have to ship the tension head back.)

    But, overall, i am pleased with my purchase. Check out the pictures!:D

    very nice.

    seems to have copied quite a bit from the design of the Yonex ES5Pro.

    how much damage (to the wallet) did that do?

    i second a review.

    incidentally, this goes for US$1250 right now. seems to be a nice deal for a pretty substantial machine.

    I really like that "one-knob" mounting system - takes a lot of guesswork out of getting the frame stress right. The shoulder supports also look excellent - no chance of them twisting and there's a nice deep slot.

    (Just re-read that, and "one-knob" and "nice deep slot" are off limits for mickey-taking:p)

    I wonder if the badminton shoulder supports (insert) for the ES5Pro will fit the Eagnas?

    Wah, I hope the electronic is as nice as the exterior of the machines! Did you upload the photos from Eagnas China website?

    If I can choose, I'd rather buy Wise2086 than Eagnas. I can say this because I have Eagnas Flash 737E and Eagnas Combo 912 + Wise2086 .... I found that Wise2086 is more consistent.

    And for the pictures, Eagnas people sent me those picture along with many new machine including a machine similar to Alpha Shuttle Express below
