I've used coils for around 5 years now. Did the research and talked to quite a few people on how to tune my coils using springs, abar weight, gap, and a good power supply. My coils run just fine with regular needles and I had no complaints. About 6 months ago I swapped over to cartridges and I'm really clueless on how to retune my machines. A few people told me to tune it regular with 50% duty with a cartridge grip and needle, others say tune it like you would a regular needle then just add the cart grip/needle and go with it.
I can't get my needle speed up where it needs to be and my duty is running high 60's.
Any tips from anyone using coils with carts?
O, and if you haven't tried the Redemption Tattoo Aftercare, go now and get some. It works circles around anything I've ever tried. Wonderful stuff in that little jar. I purchased the 1oz just to sample and ended up ordering a couple 6oz jars the next week.
