Hello all. I've been lurking here for a while now, and this is my first post. Well, second, after the introduction. I do mixed media acrylic and colored pencil works. Right now I'm using a Neo for Iwata CN brush with the .35 nozzle. I've been moderately happy with it, but it does get moody at times. I'm looking to upgrade and I need some advice, so a couple of questions: What's the consensus regarding Iwata vs Grex in general? I know the Eclipse is pretty much the go to, but I'd like to find out what the differences are. It's pretty hard to find much objective information regarding the Grex. So, what I'd like to know is: The difference in the actions. Which one is smoother? Reliability of Grex in general. Availability of parts (besides needles and nozzles). I'm thinking of going to a brush with the .2 nozzle, but I think at this point any brush is better than I am. My reasoning is I'd like to get better at the details with the AB and rely less on colored pencils. I hope this hasn't been to vague; basically I'm looking for a broad comparison between the two manufacturers. Thanks!
