    Badger Krome for me now. I also use a Badger 150 and 175. I've had the Krome for about a week and am very impressed. I am new to airbrushing and was struggling with my older Badgers. The Krome made everything I was working on seem much easier. It just feels very smooth and I am able to get consistent results with it. I have heard so much about Iwatas that I would love to give them a shot also.

    I use the Aztek 470m metal bodied AB .I got this full kit new at a steal so i just took the plunge and glad i did .If like me you have arthritis especially in the hands i have found it considerably more comfortable to use .I like the nozzle options which IMHO ,help simplify things like textured effects and spraying larger areas .You can also use as a single action if required .I have even repaired cars with it rather than getting my full size kit out .Cleaning is a breeze .

    2x Badger 150 (looks like 150s. does not have markings on)

    Also in my possession on loan from a friend for the next 18 months
    1x Aztek (don't know model. It's the plastic one in the wooden box and 9 nozzles)
    1x AB-130 (Chinese knock-off)
    1x AB-132 (Chinese knock-off)
    1x Badger 150

    Thanks.

    It does work very nice but it's just too light. And that dial thingy that makes it single action is a dumb idea. If you want double action, the nozzle only starts opening up halfway through the pull. And it creaks.

  18. Badger Sotar 2020. Just got an Iwata Neo, which is much better than I expected for the money. Grex XN before that; not bad but has developed a sticky trigger and was always prone to clog easily (might have been the paint I was using). The Sotar 2020 paints like a dream; amazing detail.

  19. H&S Infinity for detail, Iwata Eclipse HP-CS for everything. I own two Passche's, but can't seem to get either one dialed in.

    I use a passche vl0810. I am glad this is on here. I am shopping for another gun and I wasn't sure what to get. This will help some :)
