I use Badger brushes, and have used an Iwata and Paasche, as well. All are good, but I like the Badgers for their ease of cleaning and consistent performance. I currently have 3 Badgers that I use. An Anthem, a 100, and a Krome. The Anthem is kind of dusty, but I use it mostly for laying down primers or base coats. The 100 is an all around workhorse and allows a lot of flexibility, and the Krome is what I use to finish and detail. If I crank up the PSI and open the needle, the Krome will lay down a pretty solid coat, but I'm lazy and just like to keep each gun tuned to what job I use it for.

I hope this was of some help.
