    Does this look normal for the XCE cord to have this play in it ?

    Mine also came like yours. As for the supa beast i have one thing to say. For medium hard paint or very curved angles, it is a beast. I am finishing my job flawless half the time i used to with my rupes mark 3. If I had the experience before i would got flex from the beginning. Period. Yes it needs more effort from you to control it but believe me i like it. It has the power and eat everything. I feel that rupes stole from me my money. When you get used to the beast you will understand its value.

    Yes.

    It's not play, it's just the stress relief notch in the rubber grommet grooved to fit into and lock into the plastic housing. If there were not play at all then there would be no wiggle room for assembly and also USE.
