well as a "Automotive painter" at our shop we use Iwata's....but the others are good as well....for most of the Students that take our classes we have them "Start Out" with the Eclipse series....
there a little easier to deal with for cleaning and such..."For Us".....again the others are good as well...we happen to find those a little easier...
for examples of various ideas of how Versitile the Eclipse series are take a look at the RGX Site.....
www.RGXRacing.com

as well if you have any other Questions hit up Mike there at RGX.....he's "ONE" of the painters there....

Good Choice!
I have one with the Iwata "triple action" handle kit installed, makes cleaning a lot faster. Its pretty much my primary brush, along with my Iwata HP-C plus, Kustom Hi-Line TH, Tamiya HGTT, and Testors A7778 Aztek. Ive got one of the Parma Gravity F-1 brushes as well, I think its being used to hold up a corner of the work bench.

I started on and continue to use an Iwata eclipse. Has served me well.

I bought the Iwata BCS and Im really happy with it, fine and broad lines are no problem. Besides working on my air pressure and paint texture its great.
