best rotary for lining?

I trying to find few good choice's for a new machine in my collection. I love my Seth Ciferri coil machine but I would really like to try a rotary that i can line with. I do own a bishop 3.5 but I can't line consistently with it but I love it for shading and color and use it every day (i am considering buying the 4.2 and giving that a shot) also own the swashdrive wip but no good for lines. Thank you!

RE:best rotary for lining?

ok i'm going to go deep into this one and if you can;t follow don't get offended or try to argue please.

There are some tiypes os rotaries that have a give adjustment and this is the answer to the point of puncture, when the needle actually hangs and bounces before the return and completing it's stroke cycle.

That "hang and bounce" is what makes or breaks the rotary experience for a lot of people.
So when you hear that "rotaries are only good for color packing" that simply means that the user lets the machine do the work adn has not learned to adjust thier hand to the lack of the "hang and bounce" and this leads to the skin being punctured A LOT with little ink put in.

so....Line with a coil or try the "give" feature or simply take a closer look at the anatomy of the needle stroke for lining as apposed to coloring. You seem to be able to afford better equipment than me, so it wouldn;t hurt to make a solid purchase and if you don;lt like it hand it off to an apprentice.

RE:best rotary for lining?

I have tried TONS of coil AND rotaries...different strokes etc.. I use NeoTat Vivace, Bishop and just got my new liner...it's a Rotary Works aluminum direct impact rotary. Has a 4.2mm stroke and hits like a jackhammer at 6.5-7Volts. I line with it around 7-7.5Volts and can pack solods with a mag at 6Volts 1 pass. This thing is a beast and is about 150-175 Euro (basically around $220-$250). The company is in England and ship to the US for free! It's honestly the best machine I have ever used to line with. The next best I ever had was a "out of the box" brand new Pulse Executive. But as far as rotaries go..I wouldn't trade my $240 Rotary Works for a $600 Stigma, Fk, or anything else!! Just my 2 cent!
