Inkjecta Flite v2 vs specific

Hi guys
I recently bought a ego and I'm starting to really love it, I have some extra cash and want to buy a new rotary!

I'm hearing great things about the v2 but our shop only uses disposables so I'm unsure what to do, I've googled as much as I can about both machines and from what I've read the v2 seems to be the best option.

For ease of use what would you guys recommend?

I've also been told the vice option is the best for me but hawk cartridges and grip are expensive???

From reading on here using ttech would mean autoclaving the grip..

Disposable tubes for these types of machines are in the works. I believe ttech is working on it now, if you go on there website it says disposable tubes, but its blank right now. I know other companies are working on it too.
So in the meantime get what you want either the vice or combo, Ink Jecta Flite and youll be stoked with it. Also in the mean time you can still wrap your grip with tube sleeve and barrier film, when you break down, madacide it and also use the sani cloth wipes and your good to go. Or Autoclave it but thats your call.
I recommend the combo version on those machines. It's just more solid of a connection, and the Cheyenne grip works great on it. You can adjust the needle depth without having to adjust the vice for the length if and when you change out cartridges, because each one might be slightly different. All in all its just better in my opinion, but you do have fork over more dough for that grip, until the disposables come out and then, problem solved and those will take over.

I'm waiting on a signature machine made just for me, a Ink Jecta Flite V2.1 that is in the works. Its gonna be sweet! I'll have a bunch one day that I'll be offering. All the details are not worked out yet but when I know I'll let you guys know.

Also I would buy T Tech cartridges because I think they are better. A lot of people hate on them, but theres proof that they are fine. I actually did some testing myself on both. Cheyenne should just lower the cost and most people would probably use those, but T Tech is killin it and they are good. Yeah I said it.

Specific is a good machine too. Now they have the Specific 3 (not sure if its out yet) which would put you in the same boat with using the Cheyenne grip and either cartridges. Unless you get the Specific 2 and use normal tubes and rubber bands,etc . Thats your call. You cant go wrong with any of them, honestly. It comes down to preference.

Thank you for your in depth reply :)

I'm so tempted to just but a v2 and have done with it!!
All I ever hear is great things!!

P.s I thought the specific 3 could be used with disposables?

I could be wrong but he sent me one and it has the screw on for the Cheyenne Grips. Other than that I believe its the same as the other Specific. If you check my Instagram I posted a picture of it, it's green and about 10 posts back.

yeah but mike Cheyenne make their adjustable flex grip for vice versions that's what I use don't you think its more versatile that way you have the best of both worlds you can use any grip and the disposables in the future too the only thing with using the flight this way is you need another set of the longer flex bars for the Cheyenne adjustable flex grip but it doesn't cost much for an extra set

Mike, I have a question??
Is it normal that the Flite V2 in the minimum deep of the grip, stays like 3mm outside??
My thunder only keep 0,5mm and the flite with the same grip 3mm

RE:Inkjecta Flite v2 vs specific

@Mike D the specific you speak of with the screw on grip is the Specific "Combo" machine. You can get get either 2nd or 3rd gen specific with either regular or hawk grip attachment.

RE:Inkjecta Flite v2 vs specific

I'm using the last generation of Cheyenne grips. When I turn in the grip I keep with the needles out something like 3mm. The same turned inside movement with the same grip in the Hawk Thunder I get just 0,3mm. Is there a problem with the bar length? Was not suposed to have the total control of the needles expose by turning the grip? Because my minimum are to much outside needles :(
