Well I have had one with the 3.5 mm stroke for 2 weeks now and just got a 2.5 mm liner today. Very nice and easy to use. the design is pretty sweet. More of a review later, but I shall say I am definitely impressed!~

a 2.5 liner? i would never use that stroke not even for black and grey and that's my thing. Everyone tattoos diff but i've never heard a tattooer use a 2.5mm stroke for a liner. Sounds iike snag city!

does this thing have any give when using the cart attachment? i haven't looked into them to much, i've been dishing it out for hawks and flites, but I'd like to know if the magnetic/spring dampening works the same when set up with carts??? Theres a part to change so I'm thinking it's just going to be a direct drive when set up for carts.
Thanks!

I used to use a 2.5 NeoTat for fine lining with a 3rl and loved it.

Snag city on a 2.5? The 3.5 shoves soo much needle out of the tip of the tube thats its hard
for me to use to shade with. The 2.5 has an even short stroke that ran great.

When using cart attachments, you take out the magnets to compensate for the cartridge resistance and use only the give of the cartridge

I've had the chance to use my Valor only a handful of times, but I have to say it's one of my favorites. One of the smallest and lightest machines I have used and the magnetic return is great. I have only used the 3.5mm stroke, but I will change to 2.5mm to see what this is capable in black & gray

How is the vibration? Looks like a well thought out machine!

For me the vibration is slightly a little more than the heavier machines, but less than the other lighter rotary machines so it falls right in the middle so it's fine. that's usually the tradeoff for smaller lighter machines. the valor for me is still holding up very nicely. i am in love with it. it runs like butter. i think this is a great first offering. lookin forward to the what lies ahead.

Still lovin mine. I know a few mates that are still using it and loving it but I think it takes a bit of time for more reviews to come out.

Does it hit harder than a Vivace?

Yea, the valor kicks ass as a color packer. It hits hard and is fast. Great if you have fast hand speed. If you move slow, then it might be too "fast/powerful" for ya, but really I love this machine. It hits faster than a vivace in my opinion. Hardness about the same. I like the valor for lining especially bc of the speed and torque.

The only other rotary i have experience with is a kubin max mc so it is a hard comparison!
