    Any real advantage to a soft air valve spring.

    If so couldn't i just trim a few coils of my stock spring?

    Ta.

    From what I've read it's easier to use because there's less pressure needed to hold down the trigger and I've also read others trimming their spring a coil or so to achieve the same result..but I personally haven't tried one before though

    Cheers geez.

    My trigger action isn't to bad for a noob.

    Couldnt justify spending £20 on a spring! Lol.

    That's money for paint!!

    I got soft spring on mine airbrushes. At low pressure I notice the difference. If I shoot at 60 psi I don't. My logic tell me if psi is very high, soft spring doesn't matter, cause air pressure is so power full. I wonder if my theory is right...

    Nice one @huskystafford

    Run a PSI of about 35-40 most days.

    Details at about 15-25 painfully slow but precise

    Soft spring = less muscle fatigue if you are spending long hours on the brush

    I have edited the title of your thread.
    ‘Q’ isn’t helpful for anyone using the search function or scrolling though sections

    a soft spring in combination with a low trigger is the way to go for me these days , I fitted a soft spring to my first micron back in 2008 and I loved the soft feel that much that I fitted soft springs to all my airbrushes
    But I never payed 20 pounds for one ! @AndreZA has the best springs for the best price but those are for Iwata airbrushes

    As already been said, the finger fatigue is reduced. Besides, you'll get increased trigger control.
    By combining "soft" needle packing with the soft spring you can get the best control possible for your detail airbrushes.

    Once I've tried the soft spring, all detail airbrushes got these springs.


    Not really 20!;)
    Foxy Studio sells them for much cheaper price, my soft springs are all from them. And Foxy gives discount for the forum members.

    Besides, @AndreZA sells soft springs for even lower price, but I still haven't bought any from him. Guys from here could tell you more about his springs.

    I do. It gives more control, compared to stock one. But some people like low triggers, though my preference is opposite.


    What exactly, taller trigger or soft spring?
