Ya Rich, my machines are ready to go but unfortunately, the weather isn't. Sometimes I get a hankering to try something different but usually resist.. Now that the ORX is out it got my curiosity. But I am one to resist change sometimes. Monte had to pry the Whites machines outta my hands to get me to try the Red Racer when it first hit the scene. As it turns out, I liked the machine and have been pretty much using the Nokta/Makro machines since then.

I kinda want to try a XP machine and kinda don't. I wonder if I'll have the patience to really put in the time and effort needed to really get everything out of the machine. I kinda have stuck with the simple/performance route. The CoRe and Relic meet those requirements. Once I have my settings saved it basically becomes a turn on, ground balance and go machine.

One other thought is that with a machine with a multitude of adjustments, such as the XP or even a V3i I start to second guess myself wondering if I set it properly etc. I guess with time as with anything you will eventually learn. Not to say I'll never own an XP machine, but I think I'll hold off a bit.

When I see Kickindirt later on, he said I could give his a try and he'll explain some of the workings etc. If you get one, I'll be really interested in your overall opinion after you get a few hours on it. If you do get an XP machine, will it be replacing any of your other machines, provided you like and keep it?
