Hi there... this is my first post on this website. But reading this I just wanted to throw in a vote for the plus gun... it is a great gun at a good price. I actually have two of them. Yes it is a fast paced gun, but I like that. I can get around a car with out being so particular about it... It will lay out clear like glass... not it is a RP gun so you do get more of a cloud in the air when clearing... but you have to remember that the transfer efficiency is there. It has to be since it is approved to use in CA... If you ever have any questions on set up for the gun you can always feel free to give me a email and I would be happy to give anyone a hand.

there's a reason we advise getting a sata or iwata ect . your learning . it is much easier to bite the bullet and get a top shelf gun to learn with. reason ? because you will have to relearn every time you switch guns. many of the cheaper guns will give you solvent pop and a host of different problems . in most cases you are looking at 100 - 200 difference. tools are everything . without good quality tools all the talent in the world is useless.

Oh but by using an Iwata or Sata you're NOT going to get solvent pop? That is OPERATOR error. You have to know your equipment AND materials. There is a HUGE difference between a Harbor Freight gun and a Sata or Iwata. Yes, THEN equipment makes a difference. BUT there IS NOT $250-300 worth of difference between a Sata and a Devilbis plus. I can guarantee he will make the SAME amount of money with either gun.

I would have to agree with this statement. I have shot with a sata also... is it a good gun... Yes it is with out a doubt... but the Plus gun is a good gun also. Plus the parts are a lot cheaper if you ever need anything. I have had really good customer service if you ever need to call them for anything as well. Like I said the Sata is a great gun, I am sure the Iwata is as well. But my personal opinion, and let me restate my "opinion" is that the Plus gun is a great gun for the hobbyist. Not going to break the bank, but it is a quality product that will last you and give you good results.

underground. state your opinion without quoting people .

when trying to lay clear slick with a gun that does not atomize very well you can get excessive build. which can lead to pop and even delamination. just about every thread dealing with pop comes back to a cheaper gun and production clear applied too thick too fast. if you think your going to do this often and especially if you have any thoughts of doing it for a living get equipment that will help you and also save money. a cloud in the booth is money going up the stack.

I understand all of this. Like I said, I was a SATA guy till death a year ago. But you are basically stating that an IWATA or SATA are the ONLY guns out there. That is simply NOT true. I have used a plus at a production level and would put it against a SATA any day.

If you get the devil plus let us know how it is. I'm leaning toward that gun also.
