Editor's Review:

by Chris A. Minick

review date: August 1, 1999

Pros: The 700 is the most comfortable sprayer to use. It has an extremely flexible air hose, filters are easy to replace, and the plastic handle stays cool during use.

Cons: On the downside, the 700 has no air-reducing valve to regulate atomization pressure, and it produces a spray pattern that’s not elliptical (left). Also, I found the manual to be poorly written.

I have only recently bought the 700 model but so far I am glad I bought it, although I paid $599.00 for it i cant find it at $499.00. The quality seems to be very good, I really like the gun and spray pattern.
