I have used Badger airbrushes and this is the first Iwata. I'm sticking with Iwata from now on. I believe it works so much smoother. The price I got it for was a real steal so I'm happy.
Just what the Dr. ordred

The parts I received for my airbrush fit just like they were supposed to. My airbrush is working like new again.
Iwata hp-cs airbrush
By Mike in N.H.
from New Hampshire
After looking for this airbrush through many sites, this was a great price! As far as airbrushes go, this is one of the nicest I've held in my hands.Taking it out of the box, I found it very comfortable in my hands and solid. The trigger is very smooth with no drag of any kind to be felt.Prior to use, I set it up and cleaned it out as recommended.I loaded it with paint and started spraying a cardboard blank. The Iwata performed flawlessy from flooding areas to just smaller than a pencil line with no overspray, spitting or splatter. The Iwata performed as advertised. It is a great tool that has just become my go to brush! This thing is a trooper!From brushing portraits, scenery, cars, and even firearms, the Iwata hp-cs will do what you want it to! This brush will handle just about any task. I absolutely love it and am already planning for a few more!I must add that the customer service at Blick's is outstandingly helpful and friendly! Blick should be proud of them. They are awesome!

Great quality, sturdy, easy to use.
SBS- Great airbrush, minor flaws
By Airbrush guy
from Myrtle beach SC
Been using the SBS for about 17 years. That alone speaks volumes. If you use old paint, you will periodically have to poke a clog out of the nozzle, but that's no big deal. However, whoever designed these side feed bottles has no clue what it's like to clean these things. It's built with a 90 degree angle which means that when you get a clog, all you can do is blast it with air and windex and wear it away literally one molecule at a time! The cutaway handle serves no discernible purpose. Otherwise excellent airbrush. Always have a spare needle and nozzle when you're troubleshooting.

I decided I wanted to try airbrushing so I took a one week getaway course. We used the Eclipse CS To both learn the basics and practice our classes.I had done some T-shirt airbrush with a single action gun, so it took a few minutes to get used to the double action. Once I did and practiced my strokes it was a dream.I now own a ECLIPSE CS & a BCS. The BCS is used for back ground work and the CS is my all around gun.I still do some T-shirts and custom paint on other items including cycles and hot rods.Thinking about an upgrade to the KUSTOM. Great produces!!!

I use the iwata eclipse to airbrush t-shirts, it is by far the best airbrush to use for this application. It holds up well and it is easy to achieve fine detail with this airbrush, the only negative aspect of using the iwata is the cost to replace the tips and needles, but I have not found a better quality airbrush to use for airbrushing t-shirts.

I bought the HP-BCS Eclipse Ready-To-Go Set. The air canister froze (literraly) after I used it for a few minutes, so don't get this because the air source is phony and you still have to buy an air compressor... even at the start.The stencil set is a toy... that you can make yourself. It comes with some tape that I don't know what to use for. And I think the paper is for making custom stencils.This set, if you are going to get it, will get you familiarized with how an airbrush works. After that, you will quickly outgrow it, leaving you wanting for more. As far as the airbrush goes, what it really is, is for people who are only going to do high-volume uses; i.e stencils such as for t-shirts, or painting airplane models, varnishing, etc. For any other use that is more demanding than that, i.e. making details, you need a gravity-fed airbrush with a trigger lock. Quick one on trigger lock, and for complete newbies like me a few days ago, who are going to do detailed work - this is an absolute must because it prevents wild overspray, thus making detailing 100x easier; literally.Other cons: bottle changing drips paint so it is messier than gravity feed, and gravity feed is so much easier on you compressor and you save electricity. I've tried to check as many variables as I can, and the only advantage I see in bottom siphon feeding is that it doesn't block your view and it can hold a ton of paint... that's it.Bottomline - this is a very basic airbrush with an Iwata brand name.
