Stigma Hyper V2

Posted by Kienstare on 12/18/10


Just got mine and was wondering if I should run it awhile before using it? I always run my coil machines 1/2 hr to 45 m each time I change a main part. I like shading with a bog and the hyper seems stiff even backed cushionning screw all the way out and tight it back 1 and 1/4 turn in. I read on MD's forum or Nick's that the stigma gets better everytime you use it. Is it because the spring of cushionning mech has to loosen it's stiffness or the wear of the metal on the area they want us to lubricate? Or...? What factors make my stigma hyper V2 "age" better?
Many thanks to Nick and to all on this forum for concentrating the art and artistry help in this cut throat biz. Apologies to spelling nazis ;)

The Stigma Hyper I was everything but what they say it is.
The "limitless give" is straight up bullshit. I bought mine (and received it after numerous emails and endless wait) and when I took the give system apart I happen to realized that it was just a little silicone sleeve surrounding the Pin that acts as armature bar. That armature bar pin is then trapped with too little screws! Are you serious? The silicone sleeve was punched all the way through by the screw. to a point the the limitless give force me to press the screw all the way in killing its purpose.

The swash system runs loser every time I use the machine. It also heat up a lot for me.

I Don't know how much more they have improved the new hyper, but it looks bulkier and heavier than other machines out there. If the "Limitless give" is the same shit they had on the Hyper I, you are just being mocked one more time.

To pay almost 500 for a machine with no motor is insane, and to have to wait ages to get it even crazier.

I wanted to try what the hype was about but I am now back to my coils. Real give, less hassle and reliable.

I was told by very reputable builders that the design and manufacturing flaws and problems would show up as soon as enough tattoo artists are using the machines for a couple of months.

It is starting to look like they may have a good point. Interesting to see what comes out of the wood work as soon as more machines are on the market and the hype wears off.

Same problem here, I sold mine too. Not good penetration, impossible to outline with and like someone said before the give system is straight up crap. That piece of rubber goes bad after a couple of tattoos and your give ends right there. Mine had heat issues too and motor seemed to lose power after a 50 tattoos.

Thanks for your kind words. Better to rattle and shake a little every so often than die of boredom and neglect. It certainly keeps things going.

Merry Christmas, Mate.

how do you feel paying that much money for a fuckin gimmick? there is a reason why coils have been around for so long. and the only rotary machine that i have used day in and day out with no problems was the gen 6 swashdrive, and it wasn't even mine, im not spending my hard earned money on something that might quit working after a month of tattooing, just my 2 cents

Agree totally. Organising right now with mike pike his teacup liner and the shader. I think he is very busy, but we will get it organised soon enough. Look forward to that.

i almost want to buy a rotary just to have one. ill admit ive never been around anything but coils, and a brief fling with neuma's.

even buying one of those cheap crap ones i see everywhere would be worth having just to be able to take it apart and see what it's about... from what ive been reading though there doesnt seem to exactly be a world of difference between a $100 and $500 rotary haha.

So i have decided to buy a rotary once tax season comes along, Ive heard a lot about all these machines but the ones that intrigue me the most are those ones there selling on lucky supply, special technique. They have some really cool looking one of a kind ones sold on there site. I watched some you tube videos of them and there the only ones from what I have seen that look like they have actual real give. But hell its a rotary do you even want give with them? Well figured I would ask since every one on here is machine crazy these days.

when i used a rotary, i noticed they worked better on tight skin, like lower legs, or for arms, any area that the skin is tight, but on softer skin, coils work a lot better, but thats just my experience

I have all the rotaries out on the market and the only one I will actually use is the Rapier II by the tattoo pirate. The 4mm swing model has a good amount of give and packs a consistent punch, does not heat up much even after 8 hours of use. Its very light and can pack in the color and do soft shades of grey with ease. But got to admit I still love my pulse and Next gen machines.
