||Definitely better than a standard painter's touch cap.
Softer, bigger, more flare.
They're more controllable, but think about the can you're working with...
A standard PT cap is neater around the edges and I can do skinny lines and medium lines.
With the EZ cap, the spray is softer (both velocity and appearance) and much more controlled. For me, line weight goes from soft-skinny to soft-medium-fat.
The cap grabs the inner rim HARD.
If you want the cap to come off easier, shave off half of the lowest ring on the inside part that grips the cap. (I shaved the half from the front to the back, so that when I push up on a 90 degree angle to where I'm spraying the cap will come off)
Also, these caps are GREAT for bombing. No messing with caps!
All you do is latch this tip on then (after breaking the initial "seal") lift the inner part of the cap off the valve and to the right/left. The cap will sit next to the valve and doesn't spray.
All you have to do is lift the inner part up to align it with the valve and you're good to go.
One thing I have noticed once or twiceâ€”if you push too hard the valve can wedge itself awkwardly into the cap causing a very low pressure stream. All you have to do is lift up on the cap to reset it. Not a big deal, but something I noted (and, again: rarely).
Overall, great if you're using a lot of PT/other "value" brand with a male valve.
