    Does this mean Kwun will put the 6004 off the purchase list?

    $2500 is way over budget.

    besides, it is tennis machine with little tweakability. what's the fun in that?

    Same profile as the plastic ones but smaller in size to fit badminton frames

    the side support aren't the biggest issue. it is the size of the whole thing and the distance to the gripper.

    in case someone else has a deeper budget than me.

    or don't mind a bigger machine. afterall, most machines out there that people use are tennis machines, there are only the handful of us who are so picky about the size.

    I am temped to post this machine looks just like Baiardo Just to piss off Mark G. Sory Mark.
    Anyway, It is a capable machine just like the Baiardo with much reasonable price. Trust me, I had to sell my car to pay for my new machine at that time. If you are not Master LSD who LOVES to torture racquet at high tension, both Baiardo and Ghost are great and can string up to 30 lb without any issue (I just did a VT-Zf at 29 lb last night and a AT900P at 30 lb last week.
    If you don't need the touch screen, this is a very reasonable priced machine that can do everything (except weaving)

    How does this distance differ from the YONEX ES5 or Protech 8?

    Anybody please chime in as I'm contemplating getting this machine this year.

    Why don't these pictures show up any longer? Kwun?? Fix this.....lolI'll measure the distance on my LiNing machine. Should be closer as it's a dedicated badminton only machine.

    Just looking at the Alpha Ghost makes me want to sell my current WISE-mounted Gamma Progression II 602. After about a year I only made back 800, putting in another 800 to sell my setup, I'd still be 900 shy of this machine Damnit. I don't even want to think how much I'd need to string to make enough back for the ES5.

    I'll post pictures of my measurements when I get the chance, as I think the Gamma + WISE was a pretty awesome combination for an entry level ECP option, hopefully someone will benefit from it.
