Everybody's going to say the 1.4, I hope to try the SPI product line shortly myself and I'll try both, the 1.3 and the 1.4. I've been told that I paint different than most painter's so you need to do what works for you.

HAHA I could not agree more. Sometimes recommendations are just that and you have to do what works for you. Like I said earlier I spray my current 4:1 clear with a 1.5 Sharpe and love it. It sprays out slick and wet and requires very little buffing. However I learned to paint on commercial trucks and heavy equipment so I am used to painting fast and hard. If you don't keep moving you will have it dripping on the floor lol But it works for me. Try it on some old pieces or masking paper to get a feel for it before jumping on something that matters. Good luck either way

It's rare to see two painter's that paint exactly the same way, yet often the results are similar...You like a 1.5 tip...Move fast and probably use 50% to 60% overlap....I like a 1.3 for most clears...I overlap 75% to 80% and have been told that I don't put clear down that fast...it's not right or wrong, it's what works for you.

Your right about trying different or new products before spraying the product on what matters, this way you learn what the product does and what's required to get the finish your looking for.
