Southside13ink.. also man everything u said fell on def ears after u stated the Bishop was made first in 08, when the neotat was first introduced in 2004... revolution was garbage, and yeah it was linear and probable not the first, but ray didnt use the same motor and cam.lol.lolol. got no problem with improving other builds, and that is just wat the impact did, Improve on the Neotat and their Vivace, the bishop in no way improved upon it other than add a maxon motor later in the game..

RE:Bishop rotary vs impact rotary ?

I looooove my impacts I use the 4.2 for lining and color packing and a 3.5 for shading and blending. Now I've been in the same place as alot of people thinking that the bishop would be better and the impact is a knockoff but doing extensive research I've come to find that Todd is the creator and mastermind behind the O.G. Bishop. Franco is the creator of the bishop capo. Todd took his original design and made it much better thus creating the impact. He has not had to make one change to his machine to make it better so far. I've noticed that the capo has been changing and changing since it was released. First the large frame with the face plate the first bishop capo. That has been redone. As well as the slides and the cams. Todd HAD the best cams you could possibly use but I noticed bishop took that idea too... I do have 2 bishops also and its been hard keeping up with the changes and new parts. So far the impact has been the best rotary I've ever used. I don't have to keep up with parts. I don't have to clean it, all I have to do is put a little lube on it every now and then and get back to tattooing. Todd did this on purpose he has built a worry free no maintenance reliable machine ALSO with a 2 year warranty as compared to many others 1 year warranty. That just shows how confident he is in his machine. Trust me everyone who is reading this right now needs to just go with impact.

RE:Bishop rotary vs impact rotary ?

Okay everyone, first of all I don't have time to combat these idiots that have no idea what they are talking about, but out of respect for anyone that is reading these messages I want to do my part and make sure that that should be known. So excuse the essay but its relevant. And I'm not being biased. Infact, I mainly am a coil user (Mickey sharp and Seth's)

For starters, Taylor, from "knock out tats" in herber city, it's funny because I just found out that Todd wrote your messages and have you post them here, you think you're slick but if you're going to be honest, then be honest, don't let Todd boss you around in exchange for free machines, your cover has been pulled. Don't you know it's easy to find shit out nowadays?

And to address your second lie, you say you have done extensive research to find out that Todd is the original builder? Sure with us what extensive research you have done?? Hurry, I AM WAITING??

And for mr. Tattood, I never said Bishop was made before the neotat, I said that in 2008 is when Bishop first appeared on the scene, and I don't know if you know that franco and Ray from neo-tat are friends and talk alot. They both are some of the very first rotary builders way before everyone jumped on the bandwagon. They were one of only about 8 rotary builders in 2008 compared to the 100's that now exist. That's priceless!

Again to correctly inform any readers, the bishop capo was only changed twice, the first time was to get rid of faceplate because it was far too expensive to make, the second change was the most recent one on the body only because the Chinese were already knocking his product off And he wanted to combat that. Also he covered up the motor hole because people were spraying their machines down with madacide and it was getting inside the housing. As for the internals and the cam and slide they are all the same. And the same as about 10 other machines on the market.

For "taylor" to say that impact is a maintenance-free machine is a joke, just go ahead and try taking it apart your self when you need to clean it, and anyone who is intelligent knows you have to clean it every 4 to 6 months, try and take the screws out of the front, it's nearly impossible and so far there have been so many that have been broken and nobody is able to fix them, ( for beginners, NO machine is maintenance free lol) there are quite a few pissed off impact owners because of this huge design flaw. Franco originally designed it with 2 set screws underneath. Much easier maintenance.

Todd was never a machine builder, he simply stole Franco's machine and went and sold it to plenty of his customers, if you asked respectable tattoo artist like Rich Pineda, Jonny Quintana, Latisha wood and Plenty of others, they know the true story, in fact Franco is still in the process of suing Todd and Winning. pretty soon the truth will be known, I will just leave it at that, time will tell.

so if you who have been fooled by Todd, the non-Tattooer and so-called machine builder, just remember that the truth always prevails and you guys will soon see what really happened, this lawsuit will tell it all.

I am sure he will write a response to this and have one of his victims post it, so just be prepared to hear his opinion through someone else's profile. For the record, there are hundreds if not thousands of very happy Bishop customers, and so far there have been so many returns on the impact because of the way the motor is mounted, it has stripped the motor and it has caused people a great deal of problems, and anyone can try and call Bishop and they will answer the phone During business hours, go ahead and give them a try. 949-916-1054

I wouldn't be so angry except I just can't stand to sit here and see people fooled by Todd, I was there from the beginning and saw it all go down, the impact trademark and machine is owned by Franco, that was actually his next machine set to be released until Todd stole it while Franco was in the hospital, ironically he is winning the lawsuit while Todd is in the hospital in a body cast because he was stupid enough to run himself over by his own truck !!

Todd is a manipulator and a bad person, I'm certain more karma will come his way.

RE:Bishop rotary vs impact rotary ?

Well said, ^^ again i dont no the personal history, just my experience of the machines and the builder customer service. I have to say i dont agree about the set screw issue u mention. I hated the set screw on my bishop. depending on tightness and other factors changed the way the machine sounded. Also I like the fact the motor doesnt just pop out on the impact, takes all user error out of the equation. just my two cents,

RE:Bishop rotary vs impact rotary ?

RE:Bishop rotary vs impact rotary ?

Guys, why that hating?
Franco is a great man, and he does his job perfect. i never had any problems with the bishop customer service. they respond very quick, are very very helpful, and their product is great.

For the Impact, i never had one, so im not able to judge, but as far as i know, the builder isnt a tattooer for itself, so thats kinda a no-go for me.

Oh shit!, Cherry tattoo knocked off the Stigmas now. That was quick! Everyone just a note on the post above by 'sea', they are a Chinese company that knocks off everyone with shitty products. They even copied eikon's website. Avoid Cherry Tattoo Supply as they are a Chinese company with FAKE goods.

MikeD, please delete their post and ban their ip.

RE:Bishop rotary vs impact rotary ?

I hate all this pretentious shit! all we do in this industry is hate on each other and we do it a lot. mostly because we try to hold people up to some unrealistic impossible standard. there is so much entitlement in this industry nowadays. find the machines that work for you and leave it at that. yeah its a free country and views can be shared, but blatant bashing of people and there personal issues with no legitimate facts to read from is 13year old lil girl gossip. the only thing I agree with is that if there is a court hearing on this subject then wait and let the facts speak for themselves. as far as machines being built by tattoo artist or not, who cares. if the machines work well that's all that matters. I on the other hand do not like the fact that non tattooed non tattooing people are opening shops just for a dollar and not the love of the craft, imho that is wrong. also people tattooing for a year then owning there own shop, that is wrong, imo. no lineage or respect for our lineage. machines on the other hand are just another tool, like a pencil or a paint brush. oh and fuck china! and who ever is the rip off artist in the whole bishop impact situation, whoever that may be. theft is wrong and it is wrong to support it. but until the facts are brought to light just tattoo.

RE:Bishop rotary vs impact rotary ?

todd pekar is a thief and a con man.worse yet steals from the man who helps him and then lies to anyone who will listen.gonna get trashed in court.todd claims alot of shit but cant produce a shred of evidence to back it.the closest hes been to an aerospace program is shooting some dope into his veins.im not here to argue which machine runs better;they are both francos,and hes definitely the better man for not wasting his time badmouthing todd.the legal system will do that.
if u want an impact get em while u can cause todd wont be selling them for long
