Well Being I have had ample time to compare the two I feel it is time for everyone to hear my opinion on the two. First off I will start with Build , Thought put into each airbrush. Needle Stops.... From day one I have hated the needle stop on the Micron. It always comes out while painting . I now know why some pros have masking tape on the end of their Microns ,To hold the needle stop in place. But the needle stop on the Krome has a small and simple fix that Iwata should take note of. An O-ring , It keeps the Needle stop in place perfectly while in use. Next Item I really Love on the Krome it the auxiliary level . Badger put thought into this piece , It comes up above the airbrush body and has a slide that ride on the trigger. Making removal and re-installing it easy. Where as the Micron it is break out the Tweezers to get the piece back in . Trigger movement is about the same on both brushes . But the Krome seem to have a better feel to it. Regulator /Crown Cap. The Krome has two different regulator/Crown cap style , One with two protective prongs and one with out. I prefer the one without better being I am more use to spraying that way with the Micron. But the cool thing is you have a choice. Spraying those really tight line . Well you would be hard pressed to tell a difference both can pull some really micro lines. Both fade and blend nice and soft. I do like the distance from the trigger to the cup better on the Krome , But that is just cause I have big hands. or mechanic hands as the wife calls them. Granted when I first got the Micron I hated the mac valve but than got use to having it. With the Krome no mac valve but I did buy one to attach to the air valve and all is well. Dollar for dollar Go Krome... Krome-----Nozzle / Needle and regulator about 30 bucks plus shipping. Micron Head assembly and needle about 144 bucks plus shipping. So best bang for the buck I have to give this one to Badger. Plus the fact you get both the .2 and .3 set up with the Krome and the Micron you have to buy either the .23 or .18 depending on which model you buy. I really did not expect to be as impressed with the Krome as I am just wish I had learned that before buying the Micron... Oh well I still love the Micron CM-C+ and now love the Krome too.. So Hats off to Ken and his crew for designing one outstanding airbrush.. For those who do not own a Krome Buy one you will love it.
