New Automotive Spray Guns from Sata and Iwata

I had the opportunity to to take a look at the two newest spray guns from the top spray gun manufactures. The newest gun from Sata and the two newest spray guns from Iwata. 
The Sata 5000 HVLP is slimmer sleeker and slightly heavier, about 50 grams, than the 4000 but it weight has been redistributed and sits slightly further back in your hand making it a feel lighter. The air cap is wider this will cut down turbulence in the paint stream. The air control has been redesigned to give a greater range and the finish on the gun is different, it is now a non gloss they call it pearlchrome. It is available in digital and non digital models. The HVLP gun requires 15.2 CFM and is made of stainless steel so it is sutable for both solvent and waterborne coatings. I had my hands on the HVLP the RP gun has not been released yet look for it in April 2015

I also got my hands on the new Super Nova spray guns from Iwata the Evotech is the base coat gun and the Entech Clear gun. 
The Evotech comes in 1.2 1.3 1.4 and 1.5 most people will want the 1.3 or 1.4 check with your paint manufacturer for recommendations and requires 12.5 CFM to operate. The Entech clear gun also comes in 1.2 to 1.5 but it requires 14.3 CFM. They are stainless steel so they are suitable for both solvent and waterborne paints.
 These have to be the recognized as the top guns in the world and I don't want to suggest which is best but if you are looking for a top flight gun I would look at both.
