    Iwata Neo and Iwata HP-Cplus.....haven't used the Neo since I purchased the HP. No real complaints about it, just want to stay with one for consistency to (hopefully) shorten the learning curve.

    Both good. It is good that Badger now has a new agent and we can get the Pro ranges as well.

    Mr. Hobby or GSi airbrushes - brilliant. Great atomization. Heavier than iWATA - and sweet finishes. I have a few of them - all perform stellar. Parts are same as IWATA ... IWATA - had most of them - Micron and the Kuston Micron were my faves - don't currently have an IWATA atm. Badger Krome Jet model - love it. Small slick and heavy - small cup easy to clean and mix in. I like the Jet much more than the regular Krome (larger cup) which I have too... I like the Chrome option as their parts are cheap to grab and Amazon sells a pack of nozzle/needle/cap - so it's an easy option.

    Grex is a must have if you want to paint in a fan pattern unless you want to overpay for an Iwata kustom that is single purpose and over priced.

    Grex i series + 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 0.7mm(so awesome) fan kit conversions has been absolutely amazing. Makes it so easy to put down even coverage on smaller things.

    I have a very nice spray gun that does up to a 12" fan but so much wasted material and if you're doing artwork on 11x17 it's amazing.

    Collection:
    Grex XG and XSi
    Iwata: Revolution, eclipse gravity & SBS, Hiline ch
    Badger: Krome, 2X xtreme patriot
    Harder Steinbeck Evolution 2 in 1

    Brand new RICHPEN 223c (main work details), RICH AS 2 for details and IWATA CR for basics. Still own a PAASCHE TALON but since the worker who made it had a bad day probably I throw it away:-(
