    I will have a look.
    One question on the Custom CB-B it says you can put a 0.23 head on it.But your needle would still be 0.18

    Needle taper in the .18 and .23 are the same. Just swap out the head, and you are good to go. Unless you have an older V1.18:eek: - they were different.

    No all mine are V2.So just a case of adding a 0.23 head in the CM-B.Didn’t you could do this as they don’t make a 0.23 needle to fit the B.Thanks for that

    completely personal preference - they both operate off the same bits.

    Seeing that both are for small quantities of paint, I will go for the SBS. Easy colour changes when needed but cups are expensive but there are cheaper alternatives. And you can still get a bottle for it if you want to go really big.

    It all depends on what you're doing with those brushes, Bryan. But, if you are doing illustrations, an HP-C combined with a CM-B would be all the airbrushes you would ever need.
