I've been emailing Clint ALL weekend, and he's answered every time. He must live at the office. Just ordered a PS900, I'm hoping I can use for better detail work. Maybe newer eyes would help also LOL. Thanks Santa. Doug

Was wondering if anyone has received the ps900 yet and if so how do you like it.

I ordered the PS1000. I have only used it about 4 hours, but it's nice. I like being able to adjust the needle and air flow on the brush and it's easy to clean. It's much nicer than the Badgers I have been using.

I noticed that you did not agree with benton B: However I must disagree with your disagreement, and insist that his statement above is correct. There are several factors involved is spraying water-base acrylics, from needle size to thoroughly mixed paint, but with all these factors being equal, the gravity brush outperforms the siphon brush, requiring less air pressure, and is much more resistant to clogging, and/or begins flowing and spraying much easier when shooting thicker paints. I will never go back to siphon brushes, for this reason!!!!
I promise you that Newton had a full grasp of the situ, when that apple supposedly dropped on his head!!

Dean, thanks for showing Benton's quote or I wouldn't have been able to dope out what the subject was! This thread is too long and winding! Whatever the heck I said about airbrush types, I never intended to denigrate gravity feed airbrushes! I never use anything else, and for the reasons you cite. It's just a better system IMO! But if you use a siphon brush, that doesn't mean you're a hopeless! Plenty of those siphon brush guys can paint circles around me! A great artist makes great art with any tool at his disposal. Great tools just make it easier.

Thanks alot for the discount, I just ordered a PS900 today!! I too have been a Paasche man until today. Can't wait to try it out.
What kind of hose is compatable for these? I have Badger, Paasche hoses? I may have to order one.

I understand completely what you were saying, I always think of someone else reading that one line...
[It isn't a matter of gravity vs syphon feed, it's about tip size vs paint particle size.]
...and confusing someone who is just learning the differences between airbrushes. I'm glad you have moved from the darkside as far as airbrush paint goes too; the quality stuff is so much easier to live with, from spraying through clean-up...if that make us snobs, well then let us raise our fine vintage aperitifs in a toast to those we've left behind!!
