started off with 16 dollar ebay cheapy. just got a tallon. sooooo much better. but the smallest needle was damaged in transet,as was the replacement i got. it came with a mini spray atachment. i love it. i am waiting for my iwata touch up gun for candys and clear coat on small stuff. i notice the pros all use iwata microns. when i start makin some coin out of airbrushing i guess i'll get one. guess it depends on what you are doing, if this is a hobby or just for fun. or if this is a sorce of income. if your making money out of it you can buy all the awesome tools.
