    Whites DFX, Notka Makro Simplex. Folks the price don’t mean everything, the question is are you willing to put in the time to learn the machine, experience will pay off I guarantee it.

    options of coil covers vs cheap plastic that crack or break, silicone or rubber

    Other than plastic coil covers that crack or break and must removed and cleaned, possible silicone or thin rubber coated.

    You want to ruin your resale value and or warranty, spray or paint some crap on your coil. Use a scuff cover, and don't be lazy.

    I have heard of people using truck bed liner spray with good results. Never tried it myself though, thinking about it.

    coil covers arent meant to be tough as iron, they are meant to take the abuse instead of your coil. they only cost a few dollars and are meant to be replaced when they break. Even with that said, I have NEVER had a coil cover break on me.

    Like Terry said, there are options if you dont care if you ruin resale value or dont care if it looks like crap, or voids your warranty.

    I would highly recommend using coil covers, they are much cheaper than replacing the coil.

    I just buy a couple extra coil covers for my machines, and as they get old/damaged- I replace them.
