    Hi there is ok to have the iwata moisture trap on the hose rather than on the airbrush I find it annoying being on the airbrush its the one that comes with the custom micron.

    It's fine, most find the one on the airbrush gives a better grip but everyone has there own way to hold and use an airbrush.

    That ok my setup is hose, moisture trap and then a mac valve with quick connect. That way I can quickly change airbrushes.

    I have mine on the hose with the mac/quick disconnect at the very end so all my airbrushes just have a quick connector on. Works great for me.

    Do you use it similar to a Pistolgrip in the palm of your hand?

    Quick disconnects are great, not just handy if you’re using multiple brushes but it makes it a lot easier at the end of the day when you’re cleaning the brush. Or if the one you’re using is being a pig and you want to swap out for a cleaner brush while you let the other soak
    The one I have is the Grex, they do one for different brands of airbrush, mine does the Iwata, H&S, Olympus
