    If it's really in a good condition, then I would say it's a good deal. It's a perfect machine to upgrade later on with a WISE. But without the WISE, be aware that it's a crank machine and that all the Superstringers you have been looking at are drop weights.

    Ah, sorry, forgot about the WISE somehow. X-ST plus WISE is a killer combo. T70 has some features that are superior (mounting system, clamp bases), but I question if that is worth the price difference to the used machine. Again, the X-ST has to be in a really good condition there.

    Yeah, now I spotted them too. Overall a good deal I would say. But here's the big question: X-ST or the T70?

    As the T70 are all sold before arriving at 15 or 18th december i would recommend to you to buy the gamma machine. The next T70 will arrive in march/april 2018

    thanks Tennis man. Would you say in your opinion if the Gammas are of similar quality to the superstringers?

    @Tennisman I'm still waiting for the superstringer s90 to be back in stock, but do you know when exactly it will be in stock?

    The container with the machines arrived at friday in germany. Now the freight forwarder must make the customs clearing and transport the container to our company. If the customs clearing is well and fast we will receive the delivery at the end of this week, if not, next week
