Ink jecta... just a Neuma knock-off?

Okay, no one will bring this up or discuss it. So I'm going to.

"isn't the Ink-Jecta just a neuma knock-off"?

If not or it's better...
Then please someone tell me how it is. I have a couple N2's and just got my neuma (after waiting 6 weeks) because Mike DeVries loved his so much. Now it seems the neumas were thrown to the side for a machine that looks like an N2 with a different tube vise. I would buy one (Ink Jecta) if it actually IS better, but I would like to understand specifically what makes it better.
Thanks for the imput in advance.

I THINK IT'S THE SAME THING WITH CHEYENNE HAWK. LOT OF ARTISTS
USED THEM AND REALIZED THAT THE NEEDLES LIKE MAGS ARE
MORE LIKE FLAT NEEDLES, SUPPLIERS DONT' HAVE ALWAYS
ALL CONFIGURATIONS. IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE. TODAY IS THE
DAY THAT YOU CAN EXPERIMENT AND SEARCH WHAT IS GOOD FOR YOU AND WHAT KIND OF MACHINES LAYS BETTER IN YOUR HAND.
AT THE END GOOD COIL MACHINES HAVE MORE SPIRIT
THAN ANY OTHER KIND OF ROTARYS AND NEUMAS

The original Ink Jecta did come after the Neuma so yeah you could say it's a knock off. I have one and have used it only a couple times and it works good if you like the air machines, but no more air machines for me! The new Ink Jecta is a rotary,it's a completely different machine than the one that runs off of air.It works extremely well. The best thing about these rotaries are that they are so precise,i love it.
I pulled out the coils yesterday to finish up a black and grey sleeve,to keep it all consistent,since i used Coils for most of it. It did feel good using them and yes there is that spirit that they have that is great,but an old 50 chevy has great spirit too but you wouldn't want to make it your daily driver.
No one needs to say i only use coils or i only use Neuma,or i only use the Hawk, come on people we can change it up,if one day you feel like using coils,than use coils,if another day you feel like using a stick,than use a stick,whatever works best for you or the specific tattoo that you are doing that day may call for a certain type of machine. Be open...,i just like to give my opinion on machines but it doesnt mean go out and do exactly what i do,because opinions do change.
