I use a Sata 1.3 for my base and reduced clear but when I use the good HS clears my Iwata 1.4 does the job best..
My Iwata has been in use for about 8 yrs and lately its giving me a little trouble ,its getting a little wore out so I've been looking to replace it I'll be going with a devilbis TECNA for around 450-500.00 it comes with three tips and sounds promising They'll be sending me a gun to demo and know I'll be comparing it to the Sata and Iwata and if it dont preform at least as well it'll be sent back...The man I talked too said he knows my guns well and has been painting for years and thinks I'll love this gun, to date hes only had one come back from a demo...Then I called my buddy Barry K and he said hes heard a lot of good things about these guns and nothing bad, so Im going for it and with any luck I'll be a devilbus fan again...I'll let yall know all about it after I spray a ca ror two
You could reduce thicker clear to help it flow out. I don't see any harm in using reducer with thicker clears even if it doesn't call for it.
