That's the brush I have - It's been OK. I find that I have to completely disassemble and clean after every use. Not sure if that's needed on the Iwata HP-c. But it throws paint just fine.

NiB would say" its not the arrow its the Indian "but in this case i tend to favor the arrow(eclipse) i think i have only taken it apart onece and that was just to see how it works.

George;
Don't let it bother you. The Badger will be fine for you. Use it and enjoy it. If you ever decide to buy another one, then get the Iwata. Then you can compare.
I have an Iwata Eclipse and it has never needed cleaning


Went to see the whatfixer.

I have used both and you no what they say its not gun its the guy using it .This is ture . The iwata is just a better made gun and the tips last longer . As for cleaning it if you spay water through it when done and leave the bottle in it so no air can get in it will stay clean.

I use the Badger 155 I'm in the camp It's more the Shooter than what you shoot with. Someone who's more creative minded will almost always paint nicer plugs no matter what airbrush they use than some one who has no creativity at all. But I'm sure the Iwata is a better made brush sense it cost more but it doesn't mean you can't paint a nice plug with a cheaper Badger

I use a badger and I like it, I've never tried the iwata and I think next one I buy will be one just for comparision's sake.

Yo Ray! I know exactly where that bad boy is!! It glares at me everytime I open the drawer.
Think that's bad, I have about 30 bottles of paint that are almost solid. I really wanted to try those bottles of camielian??(sp)

I shake my bottles basically when ever I see them and since they are sitting in cases right near me, I shake them often.!
