I purchased the Big Shot Pro in November 20ll to have an all-around machine for cardmaking and quilting. I absolutely love it. Price was good as I got it on sale. Am waiting for good sales on the quilt-cutting dies. Bought a few, and it is sturdy, easy and fun to use. So pleased with this purchase.
I just received the big shot pro as a gift and I love it! The dies go thru the machine very smoothly and because the machine is so heavy, you don't have to hold the machine in place like the regular big shot machine.
6 months ago I bought a Big Kick and I really enjoyed it. When I got into Spellbinders huge dies I knew I needed something bigger. The computerized models scared me because it is so easy to mess them up and need repairs. I thought about the other electric ones but you can't always depend on them either. I got the Big Shot Pro and let me tell you this is a real heavy duty machine. I got it for 40% off and free shipping. My Big Kick looks like a childs toy compared to it. This is money well spent. It cuts every kind of die around if you have the big platform. Love it, Love it, Love it !!!
I'm frustrated with Sizzix products because it's impossible to get adequate cutting die information (cut dimensions). I use a scale to calculate rough dimensions. There isn't flexibility in sizing or altering shapes. I can't find larger basic graduated shapes. Aligning a die precisely with cutting medium takes a lot of time & frustration. What I've read about the the Cricut sounds outstanding in compariso
I LOVE the Big Shot Pro Diecutting machine. It's an early birthday gift to myself and I'm enjoying it!! Thanks Sizzix for making this adorable and great machine, my new toy!!! :)
Great machine. When you figure you can get the cricket which is totally digital for about $250 this becomes way over priced. With Cricut you can resize every image and with this machine you are stuck with one size on the die.
I purchased this machine from Joanns and I am in love with it!! I have a little business selling die cut shapes and this machine saves me a lot of time because I can use 4-6 dies (Originals or Bigz) at once and I get perfect cuts all the time. Just wonderful!! I also have a bigkick machine and the original machine, all great products, but I use the big shot pro more often now!!
another great product from Sizzix..waiting anxiously for the fabric quilt dies.
