    he says the parts is $60 and i can just swap it out myself. only need to disassemble the gripper. no need to open up the machine to change any parts.

    $60 is slightly steep. i am leaning towards DIYing a switch myself.

    Herb says the parts to add the switch is $60, which includes new side plates for the gripper and the switch itself. the side plates has holes which the screw going into to attach the switch.
    if I'm not mistaken, that cost for a complete unit of new gripper, since it has 4 holes to mount the switch, but if you have the foot-pedal why bother to buy the new switch ?

    because i was too spoiled by using SynergyBadminton's ES5Pro and ES5Protech!

    the pedal is ok. but not as seamless a operation as the switch right at the gripper.

    Just out of curiosity, I just ordered a wise and also the foot pedal, does that mean it still has the gripper switch?

    all current production WISE should have the gripper switch. not sure how it would connect though.

    I just want to make sure that I can try both methods and choose the better one, don't want to give up the gripper switch to have the foot pedal.

    i think you will be able to use both.

    btw, congrats on the purchase! please post pics of new toy, esp the gripper, if you have the chance.

    You can't use both unless you do some creative internal rewiring, which would void you warranty. If you can find a 1/8th" mono head phone splitter then you can use both with no problem.

    I'm checking with Herb via email to make sure that by ordering the pedal I didn't have the gripper switch removed. I would really like to have both options.

    I'll definitely post pictures once I have it all installed. I'm mounting it on a silent partner crump as an fyi.

    Kwun's is version 10.2 while the version (with switch at gripper) is version 11.
    You should have the version-11 with switch at gripper by default.
    And as CovinaStringer (dwdag ?) said, you can not use both because it uses same port at the machine, but I never tried to use 1/8" splitter.

    Heard back from Herb and he confirmed that it will come with both, he did also confirm it was possible to use both at the same time via splitter.

    It's just a momentary contact curcuit or SPST switch. Pushing either switch will close the curcuit, so pressing both will not make a difference.

    Agreed, I'm not saying I WANT to use both at once, just that I want both included so that I can choose between the two. Using both at once just came up as a side issue.

    As it is just a simple switch, I can't see why you wouldn't be able to make and mount a simple switch from Radio Shack instead of buying them from Herb. It wouldn't look as nice but would probably cost less than $10 and some soldering.

    I thought only the European models had the TENNISHEAD printed above the 2086 Professional. Did you buy this directly from Herb?
