I will also say that I am loving this machine at the moment. I've used all the Centri models and love the cobra but this is brilliant. I'd personally say it seems to hit softer than a Centri cobra but def does it all. Id say the only downfall is that now I want to add a few more to my collection! Also on a side note mike has been great with customer service. I've had a few occassions where my machines have broken down and without fail he always fixes them and will update them without cost. Well worth trying out if you haven't.
