    My dh took me to the show in Kansas (8 hour drive) I have never been to a show like this - it was wonderful. We spent 5 hours looking and "trying" all of the long arms. I have decided on which one I'm saving my $ for. It is the A1. The rep was so helpful and everyone at their booth was so knowledgeable. The machine is so quiet and smooth. I'm a small person and the ergonomic handles made it such a breeze to operate. My husband was so impressed with the frame - and you can lower it and raise it with a touch of a button.

    So glad we went and tried them all. Everyone here was so helpful in giving me such good pointers in what to look for and what to ask. It really is a personal preference.

    Just like cars, aren't they? There is one for everyone, you just have to look.

    I would have loved to have gone to this Show! And I am glad that you liked the A1 LA. That is what we have & it is a dream machine. We will have had ours for 3 yrs this coming Nov. The Sales Reps are all so nice & helpful. We love stopping & visiting with all of them at the Houston Show. I sat in their booth last year & chatted for over an hour & did not know any of them. They treat you like family. They are tops IMHO.
