What do techs think of these? I've gotten some bad feedback about these.

I have a new Petrof all lined up (model 125), but the NYC Steinway store is chasing me with a 1098.

Aren't these any good? I don't get it.

Many steinway verticals are difficult to fine tune because the strings hang up at the capo bar. The action doesn't have enough power to excite the string enough to properly equalize the tension. A tuner has to beat the daylights out of each note to set the string. If the Petrof has a Renner action, go with that.
