Editor comment

There is no point in comparing the performance as both machines are identical in terms of performance. One thing we can say is that, these two have excellent stitch quality. Both are user-friendly machines. Performance on multiple layers of denim is very good. Both are user-friendly machines. There is nothing to worry in terms of performance.
