    Not a bad find but now only if they could rework the .15 nozzle so iy does not crack so easy .

    These improvements are probably from Iwata's input.

    I don't have a H&S but I have used the 1.5 infinity needle in my DeVilbiss Super 63 before.

    I have a few brushes, mostly German in origin, that I tend to use the H&S needles in. Interested to see what the actual differences are with the new ones.

    @Robbyrockett2 I said you'd push them towards thinking about making parts better!:)

    The real competition begins! Maybe it's another start in the AB development, as there were not many changes to the airbrush bodies, needles etc.
    The Airbrush History continues!;)

    Lol, i seriously doubt I had anything to do with that.

    My guess I these are just on par with iwata needles, probably cold worked a bit more.

    But it's about time, people have complained their needles were soft for a long time.

    The only problem for a while is going to get your hands on them. No one will stock them until the old stock is sold. The part numbers are also the same so you will have to try your luck. Unless you can go into the store and see the new markings on the end of the needle that distinguishes the new from the old.

    Bwahaha hell, I'm more excited about seeing the back end of the needle than the tip. I can tell what needle size it is from 50 feet away. My tired old eyes will appreciate that feature.
