Eagnas Plus 8000
Eagnas Plus 8000

Evaluations of the Eagnas Plus 8000:

Maxim, Aug 19, 2008:

   Place of purchase:Maxline

   Date of purchase: 08/2008

   Warranty: N/A

   Price: $1295

   Equipment:

upright, electronic tensioner, 6 point mounting, 2 fixed clamps

   Experiences:

Delivery took about 3 days - machine arrived in four boxes. Upon unpackaging, I found cracked plastic on the stand, no manual, not functioning tension head - called Maxline. They told me that they will send all the parts at no charge. The Maxline rep assured me that they have checked the tension ahead as they shipped it. Not sure if this was done. Additionally I found some rusty spot on the bottom and the control pad barely attached to the body of the tension head. All in all very poor craftmanship so far. Apart from the tension head, the assembly was easy, and the machine looks sturdy.
The mounting does not block and grommet holes and racket mounting is a snap as advertised.
I was not able to string any racket thus far, as I waiting for replacement tension-head. Hopefully I will have more positive experience then.


S. Janchus, June 18, 2009:

   Place of purchase:Maxline

   Date of purchase: 01/2007

   Warranty: 1 year

   Price: $1295

   Equipment:

upright, electronic tensioner, 6 point mounting, 2 fixed clamps

   Experiences:

After paying the shipping each time to return 3 different malfunctioning tension heads, I gave up - all within 1 year. I now have the 4th which does not work either. I attempted to get my money back from Maxline, they refused and just wanted to keep sending new heads. I filed formal complaints with the CA and AL Attorney General's offices and the BBB, none of which phased Maxline. My Plus 8000 is now a very big paper weight and is destined for the dumpster. Would not recommend to my worst enemy.


Ernie, November 11, 2009:

   Place of purchase:Maxline

   Date of purchase: 11/2009

   Warranty: 1/2/5 years

   Price: $1295

   Equipment:

upright, electronic tensioner, 6 point mounting, 2 dual action swivel clamps

   Experiences:

I picked up the four heavy boxes at the warehouse because it is close to my house. I don't have to pay shipping charges but I have to pay $126.26 in California sales tax. The assembly of the machine was relatively easy. I did it leisurely in an hour and half while sipping on a Beck's. I received a user manual and an update. The calibration of the tensioner was fairly easy by adjusting two potentiometers with a screw driver in the back of the tensioner. The clamps are easy to adjust and the swivel clamp base are easy to secure and loosen with a small turn of the lever. The mounting system holds the racquet securely and it does not block holes. I did encounter a problem with the mounting system initially because the mounting posts were not secured tightly to the turn table. I fixed that by tightening eight screws with the hex wrench provided. When I was stringing my first racquet the 18 gauge polyester string slipped through the clamp and the 18 gauge nylon slipped through the tensioning gripper. I fixed those problems by wiping the clamping surfaces with a little rubbing alcohol. I have strung four racquets so far and like it a lot better than my old machine, the Silent Partner E Stringer CL. Of course, this machine is a lot more expensive than my old machine.


Vasili, May 18, 2014:

   Place of purchase:Maxline

   Date of purchase: 05/2014

   Warranty: N/A

   Price: $1249

   Equipment:

upright, electronic tensioner, 6 point mounting, 2 two slim diamond-coated, heavy-duty dual-action thumb adjustable stainless steel swivel clamps

   Experiences:

Order # 15548, invoice # 14050815548. Delivered in about 12 days after initial order. Four boxes, plastic parts had too many scratches to call it new merchandise but it is not big deal, turntable brake handle was missing, metal parts looked not pretty made by somebody who worked for free or drunk or smoked. Assembly with manual not complicated until tried attach the tension head to the table. The holes did not align. If front ones matched then rear ones did not. When spent an hour for that noticed a little chain link fell out of head body. Tried to put the machine on it started buzzing but gripper was not moving, display came on and stuck in greeting mode with Eagnas logo. So no self diagnostic whatsoever. Called Maxline was told send the head back for repairs. Ye, what about the holes in the base and head. So I decided to send back whole machine, I paid too much credit to this company. If I've read the previous reviews never bought from them. In general the machine designed very well it should be very good machine. Later I found one dealer of Maxline, he said he quit working with them because they extremely unreliable.
