I've looked closely at both the F6100 and Eclipse Pro from a hardware & software standpoint. Although both are excellent products, I give my nod to the Eclipse (software is easier to use and the unit cuts 8 ply effortlessly). I own some great Fletcher products (3000, 2100, print cutter, etc.) and have had very good support from the company, but in my opinion the Eclipse is a better machine.
Can't say anything about the eclipse, but I got my 6100 in October and I haven't stopped smiling. The manual isn't the best, but the machine is actually pretty easy to use. Haven't done much 8 ply but the machine has no problem with them.
