I bought this after reading previous reviews and I could not be happier. The airbrush attachment works well on its own, but the Flake gun with the attached air regulator works unbelievably well. The difference was so noticeable that I will never use the airbrush attachment again. The gun lays down flake fast. You can blast a skate deck in under 10 seconds. The 5050 UVLS clear works well with the flake gun but you will need to do multiple coats ( of 5050 base) if you want to blast on the flake. Based on how well the flake gun works using the 5050 I cannot wait to shoot flake into fresh clear coat. I suspect that is were this gun will excel.
Being able to turn the air off at the flake reservoir means you can use the flake gun as a dryer for water based paints or to force the flake flat into the clear coat.
This is by far the easiest way to lay down flake. So easy, in fact, that you will be trying to find an excuse to put Flake on all your projects.
