    Could someone tell me what the Krome is like to re-assemble. One of the reasons I love my HP-CS, is that it is sooo easy to strip down and put back together. An old chinese knock off I had, was so fiddley, particularly the trigger rocker (if that's what it's called). Just wondering what the Krome was like in comparison.

    Hey lady Squishy, yeah the little rocker lever can be fiddley and I do find the Iwata easier to reassemble, but its really not to much bother. But considering what a great little brush it is and it's impressive performance it's worth it:)

    Squishy , You really can not compare the Krome with the CS.. Being the CS has an attached rocker assembly .
    But the rocker plate on the Krome I can put in and out with my fingers vs on the Micron I have to use twizzers..
    If you would like I will be happy to take both the Krome and the Micron apart and show you each piece.

    Thanks Kev, I know it's probably not that much of a big deal, but that little thing used to drive me nuts. Guess I have got lazy with the hp-cs being so easy.

    Hose came, yay. I'm really quite liking the Krome so far, seems a bit more fine 'control' vs the Talon, though that may just be psychosomatic.

    Um, btw, IMPORTANT SAFETY TIP : That thing on the end that looks very similar to the needle guard on a Talon, is actually quite important as the tip nozzle is a set in vs screw in type...and those ****ers are _tiny_. Shoot one across the table and you're crawling around on your hands and knees trying to find a tiny little bit of metal.

    Really like it so far, for the whole 30m I had to shoot this evening. Hopefully more tomorrow....

    wow amazon prime 3 dollars over night shipping id pay the extra just to have it tomorrow. now i want a krome i was looking at the first page of this thread i guess bossman doesnt like the krome woner if hes tried it . sure its not a micron but i dont constantly need to do literal hair lines. i seem to be doing space and portraits i can load seperate colors using 4 diferant cups for my cmsb which i love and the krome, velocity, and infinity i wont have to clean a gun until the art work is done. il bet i can tweak a krome to do just what a micron can i have the weasely technology. if i had the money in my account right now id order it today

    I did not have to tweak the Krome to match hair lines of the Micron.
