Customer Review and Scores
The XL2610 has an average feedback score of 4.4 out of 5 assessed by a total of 196 customers. With as many as 132 five star rating, the product seems to be a good buy at an attractive price of $113.26 considering the plethora of features and functions it has to provide.
Critical reviews state that the XL2610 is often seen to have issues with the bobbin. It gets jammed at times making the threading a very messy affair. Issues with the tension have been noticed as well. After a few days of use the tension fails to maintain its stead- stitches go lose and haywire like anything! Anyway, the customers don’t seem to be bothered much by these issues which can be addressed with the least possible toil. They seem to be overall satisfied with the product.
The final verdict about the product is worth trying. We have evaluated the product and also based on the customer reviews, the product seems to fit the bill for small as well as medium projects. However, we don’t recommend this product if you are into heavy and extensive sewing. It’s a good choice limited to the beginners and the semi-pro only.
