Best gun to move fast for clear?

Ok so as you probably know Im using the devilbiss* flg4 & its good for base but when it comes to clear I reslly have to move slow to get the clear on nice & wet if I dont move like a granny then* my cleat comes out looking like sandpaper.So I want something that I can move fast with & lays clear like glass.Cost is not a issue though Im far from well off I buy the best body tools I can afford but sometimes I settle for the generic stuff cuz I can make it work but I know the gun for clear is the most important tool in my arsenal when it comes to paint just liks my welder is when it comes to bodywork.
***************** And since Im getting good results with a 200 dollar gun I know that one with a bigger price tag will pay for itsself My good friend suggested a gti but I havent got to ask him about speed on it,so...best gun to lay clear fast?Please & thank you
********** Please excuse any typos or terseness: this email was sent from my mobile and I have clumsy fingers.

Sata 90 or Sata Rp with a 1.4. I have a RP and my brother uses a 90 both will lay most any clear like glass, but you gotta keep moving or you'll lay it right off in the floor.
Any of the Sata RP guns (RP, 2000 rp, 3000 rp, 4000 rp) should do well for you, but the 90 is probably the best ever made, but they are getting harder to find. Check Ebay you can usually get a decent Rp gun in the $300 range.

Here's an example of the 90:

also, the above video is the Allchem Virtus one coat clear so he's going a bit slower than normal. If that was a 2 or 3 coat clear you could roll a far amount faster with that same gun.

I prefer my 3000 digital RP with 1.4 and my son prefers my Satajet RP. They both let you get around a vehicle quickly with excellent material build.

you have to turn up your pressure when spraying clear and adjust the material knob out, that is most likley your problem, i dont think that the gun cant spray clear.

Nozzle, needle, and air pressure is key to what ever you spray. The mix must be right for the type day it is, or it will not flow correctly, or lay down right.

another thing, just test out your pattern on a test piece and adjust from there. I can get similar results from a devilbiss starting line as I can from a finishline model, however i would have to adjust the two differently according to the situation because they have different characteristics.
