buying new gun, reduced pressure style

Hi everyone, I am looking at the reduced pressure guns. I am hoping to reduce the amount of over spray during paint with this style gun.

I paint out of my garage, so my ventilation is poor at best. I also don't paint very often so a gun with a short learning curve would be nice.

I will be using House of Kolor, Kandy Bases or Kandy paint on my custom bike project.

The guns I have been looking at are:
SATA Digital RP with 1.3 tip
BINKS M1-G
DEVILBISS DEVGFG 670 (3 tips included)

Money's not a big concern but I don't paint everyday so I don't want to waste money on a gun I may use once or twice a year.

But I do want a gun that can spray any kind of base or clear if needed and possibly true Kandy colors.

To be Honest I am leaning toward the BINKS but would like to hear what you guys think.

Thanks Dave

It's like choosing between a ....

Blond,Brunette,Redhead,Skank.

Do your homework and YOU choose.
Guns are like A-Holes, EVERYBODY has an oppinion as to which is BEST.

ANY of the TOP line guns are GREAT,It comes down to $$$$.

One thing, IF $$$ is no object then get 2 gun's, 1 for paint and 1 for clear.
Nothing worse than a clear job with a little pearl from a previous job.

I personally prefer Iwatta's. (which isn't on the short list)
LPH-400 is a great piece.

The SATA Digital RP
is a great gun but not a true HVLP, RP is for Reduced Pressure i believe and is more suited to spraying clear. The NR95 is a true HVLP and a incredible basecoat gun, but Im not sure if they have been replaced with a newer model. In my area SATAS are the choice of most pros, The paint reps seem to really be pushing IWATAS lately,they are nice but as the saying goes, " You can have my Sata when you pry it out of my cold dead fingers"

Thanks guys,
Which style gun HVLP or RP, would have less over spray?
With the poor ventilation in my garage this is something I would like to improve on if possible through less over spray from the gun.
Or do you think the less air will not atomize the paint well enough?

Thanks Dave

I have a Satajet RP. I don't know how it compares to other guns, but my autobody instructor seemed to think it is a pretty good gun.
