    Ok, you've got your new toy. We've seen the pictures. So, how well does it work?

    I did some googling. So if I understand correctly this is in the range of iwata micron? Anyone here have both of them? Interested in how they compare to each other. I couldn't find nothing on internet.
    I seen some prices on internet for this airbrush, but cause you are from the same country as I am, how much was the total cost of importing this airbrush to your door steps? And I am also interested in parts availability.

    My opinion: It performs excellent! I compare it with RICH AS 2 with a 0,2 mm (PHOENIX is a 0,3!) needle and I can tell there is almost no difference in fine lines. I will post a photo here soon so you can see the difference.

    I am not sure if it is in the same range because Micron is a 0,18mm? And I dont have a Micron (and never will). I think the professional artist who owns the new Phoenix 223c could say something and give their opinion to this AB if there is someone here? That will be great:)

    Thx. Gonna compare what range of airbrush I can get for the same amount of the money so I will probably get better sense.

    usually I buy here:
    https://www.air-craft.net/acatalog/Iwata-High-Performance-Plus.html
    https://www.air-craft.net/acatalog/Iwata-Hi-Line.html

    delivery costs like is 15-20 pounds. So I should compare with those airbrushes if I look at the money which is needed.

    I have a 213c I think the Phoenix name is a newer addition. It was just a 213c when I got mine.

    Mine is a .2 but is tuned and polished by mike learn to make the "mojo" sprays lovely and you can get a real fine line, still wouldn't compare it to the Micron though.

    Interesting, you can't even find that here. Any chance it is a fake of some sort?

    I see the website, but I'm not sure where to order one. Am I just blind?

    being a .3, not a micron like brush, but more directly compatible with an Iwata HP-CH. It is possible they have different nozzle and needle angles or shapes, but it is also possible they use the exact same parts... Very nice brush.
