    It will fit. The steeper taper of the Iwata needle will make it a bit more responsive, but it's not a dramatic difference.

    if I am not mistaking you will also need to change the nozzle for a Iwata nozzle if you change to the iwata needle

    It can be done... However your better off changing head assembly as well as needle. But at that point your really getting into a lot of bucks.

    I do realize how fragile those needles are but I wouldn't want to be scraping a cm needle either.

    To the best of my knowledge - olympos head assembly is the same thing- nozzle same just wanted to be sure

    I used the nozzle and needle from my Iwata HP-B in my Olympos HP-100SB and it worked 100%. I would mate a needle and nozzle and not just one.

    Yeah, the shorter tapered area means a steeper angle.
    You could get an Iwata nozzle, too, but if it were me, I'd see how the needle works, then decide if a nozzle or head unit would help, but my guess is the needle will work fine.

    Yes I should have said nozzle. Not head assembly... I just had head assembly on the brain!
