    Most important question first: What's the budget?

    Im not entirely sure on the budget. My Neos 1000 was given to me... and I spent about 900 on it (Swivel Clamps Addon and Wise 2086 Addon). I guess I could say I am willing to spend if the quality is there. I would say maybe 2500 is my budget

    Then I am not the right guy to give any advice since that is far from what I was looking for myself. In general, I would think about keeping the Wise, buy a high-end drop weight machine and mount the Wise there again. You should get a superb machine for less than 1000 CAD(?) that way.

    For a similar replacement I'd say a Gamma 6004 and stick your Wise on it.

    If you wanted something fancier the Alpha Ghost looks good, although maybe a little over your budget. Assuming you can get one in Canada. It would've been my choice if they were available in the UK.

    The CAD tanked so badly in the past year. I took a look at the alpha ghost and it looks great. But I would have to end up paying 3500 CAD and about 300USD shipping for it. Not to mention how much the Government will kill me on customs fees and what not. I would probably have to pay over 4500 possibly.

    I wish I had the money for a Victor C-7032....

    Don't we all... although if we're dreaming I'll take the VE-80
