I was able to obtain the same results using a SeeMeCNC EZ Struder which was impressive. However that made the Flexion extruder that much less impressive. It's possible and very probable that the I could print ninja flex faster with the Flexion than the EZ struder, I haven't tested that yet, And with a longer Bowden it's quite possible that the Flexion will fail just as easy. Anyone at the Hive is welcome to borrow the Flexion and do some testing of there own.
Over all it is a nice extruder, but in my opinion, not worth the price. I do like the tension dial, but miss the spring tension lever for easy filament insertion/extraction.
Some things are meant to be closed. Your mind isn't one of them.

Their claim to fame is the speed, right? That's what people are buying them for, at least. They claim it'll do 70mm/s with a .4 nozzle... That's impressive, if it can actually do it.
Weird that you had better luck with your EZ Struder than I did. I couldn't get an EZ Struder to feed flexible filament at all - I was even having trouble with Taulman Bridge kinking and not being able to feed part of the way through a print... That's why I designed my own extruder.
Are you using real NinjaFlex, or is it the semiflex stuff?
