Adding one to my wish list. Just curious which micron is best? I like gravity feed so looking at the cm-c plus.

its an amazing brush and yes up would be looking at gravity or side feed but that is down to personal preference what you like.....maybe a bit tricky to get the hang of/bit expensive if you have an accident while learning though ?? what about the eclipse....have I mentioned /have you got a badger krome, or the velocity yet,

I own the CM-C+ I love it . But I also bought the .18 set up to go along with it.
I am not big on bottom feed and side feed mainly due to they get in my way. But that just me.

But honestly after seeing the Lion with skull in it's mouth Josh did for me with his Krome. I too am buying a Krome.
So After I get it I too will offer my opinion between the two .

I went with the SB because 1. I have MAC valves on all my hoses so I do not need that and 2. with a side feed, you can run multiple colours at the same time without having to empty the cup after each colour.

It will be a while before I get one. I'll get a krome before I get a micron probably.. I would think that of you had a micron. You wouldn't need a krome because the micron would out perform the krome?

I don't know.. Never tried anything but a gravity feed. The guy at hobby lobby when I was buying my airbrush was trying to talk me into the bottom feed iwata that they use a lot on t-shirts.. I just like the way the gravity feed looks mostly. And the less pressure thing. Could be cool to be able to switch cups though.

Micron does not have a bottom feed. I've gone as low as 5psi with the side feed. And I never believed the thing about "side feed moves the cup out of the way so that you can look over the top". It never bothered me but when I tried, I do now with very small detail.

I can vouch for the Side feed Micron, it's a great bit of kit. I'm saving for one right now and will get the side feed.
The bottom feed / bottle airbrushes are usually suited to T-shirt or high volume painters. Personally Ive never had the need for one even when doing a T-shirt, but its your choice as to what you buy.

I can't comment much on the krome, but all I see on here is great work done with it so it's a capable brush and will be a good addition to your airbrush arsenal. ( especially for a few of the "COLLECTORS" on here :eek:range: ) I have only just brought my first Badger product, its the Sotar 20/20 and I haven't used it yet, when the quick release adapter arrives I will give it a go, might even do a review of the performance and stuff.

If a side feed Krome comes out then I think all the SB guns from Iwata will be in trouble and Badger will need to get more staff to handle all those orders.

I was going to post a new thread called fine lines with a micron and even do a short video I might still do the video. after using the cmsb for a while trying to get the finest possible I tried to use the velocity. the very first thing i noticed was the huge shadow from the color cup. I cant see the canvas and the fine lines i did lay down wont come out on camera the only way to get a good image is to use a camera with a macro lens. I replaced the fluid head and the thing works like a dream I never got detail with any other gun like I get with the micron. also the color cups are easy to change with the sb. If your painting with a micron chances are your doing fine work not laying down paint in a large area the sb is easier to see what your doing

I see. I guess I'm just used to the cup. Haven't really noticed it being in the way too much. I am considering the side feed cuz it does take a little while for me to switch colors with my gravity.

go with the side feed its also a bit cheaper and I belive you can get a valve in between the brush and hose to make up for not having a mac valve its a good idea for turning up the air pressure to flush the gun during color changes. most of the time you will only be using between 5-15 psi. Its a great little gun, no spidering. i didnt hardly get any when I was working on that mirror video
