Hi can you please give me your opinion for witch one of these should I go with? Earlex is around £150 but only 625w but has great reviews and seams to be widely used on the other hand Apollo is around £190 but nearly twice the power at 1200 w and from what I can gather its pretty reputable company, I'm a total begginer but I would like something pretty decent. Also any other suggestions welcome.


Thanks

Alex

if you can afford the apollo then get it, the pistol as a better one to adjust and the filters on the turbines better, as are the turbines, I have the old apollo 700 and now the earlex 5000 and I prefer the apollo for my lacquer and use the earlex for solid colour finishes.

Thanks Karl, are solid colour finishes easier or harder to spray since I think thats what it will mostly be used for?
