      John Box and his entire group are wonderful people! I have the luxury of living only a few minutes away from their shop. I take my chair to them for repairs and tune-ups all the time, even though it's not a Colours chair. They have great service!

      I have to say, though, my first chair was the Eclipse. I hated it. Once I began driving again, it was hard to put in the car. The frame is very boxy and not compact at all. It was a really hard fit to get it between me, and the steering wheel, and then throw it in the back seat.

      If you're looking for a new chair, I'd try one of the newer Titanium chairs. My current chair is the Terminator (not titanium). It was wonderfully light and compact compared to the Eclipse. I'll be getting my new chair, a Quickie Titanium in a matter of days. I can't wait to see how it fits in my car!

      I'm an administrative assistant who works for 70 engineers at a cellular company. I'm NOT a wheelchair sales person, so this is only my opinion. Chairs are so expensive these days, and the right one is really important to get. Even I am apprehensive that I may not like my new titanium chair! I've had bad experiences with being "fit" properly, and you can't just take back a custom made chair, or have insurance get a new one. Personally, I am not enthused about being fit for a chair by someone who is a complete stranger and may never see me again, but that's where faith comes in.

      Bottom line, weigh all your options. Good luck!

        JMD, I'm in the same boat as you. Currently I'm in a Quickie 2HP folding chair and will be going to a non-folding rigid frame chair. The TiLite chairs look awfully sweet to me. I'm going for a seating evaluation in about 3 weeks. I hope it's not a waste of time. I'd be intersted in knowing what other folks have for a manual chair and how they like/dislike about it.

          I have purchased a colour wheelchair (spazz) about 2 years ago.. and 15 days ago, I broke the frame.... By doing nothing.. I just transfer from car to the chair, so no hard use on the chair...
          They have a life time warranty, so that they accept to fix the chair.. But I am really worried now. I was planning to buy a tennis wheelchair from them, but I am not going to...
          Not very reliable chair unfortunately.. [img]/forum/images/smilies/frown.gif[/img]

              Why have you been through so many of them then? [img]/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif[/img]

                  This is what happened to me with Color Spazz..
                  And they said me that they will send me an another one, for fix my chair in 2 months.... I wonder what takes them 2 months to send me a chair?
                  Luckly I still keep my old one, but I wonder what would people do if they do not have an extra one..

                      Does insurance pay for a chair that often? I was worried that its been 2 years since my first chair.

                          I got my spazz back last friday... It seems like they send a new one, and it take them about a month to send one... SO I am pretty impressed with their service....
                          Hopefully this chair doesnt brake
