This cap has its moments, however I don't keep them in my kit as I've found others to work as well or better. It is very versatile tho.
Pros: managable outlput, good preassure sensitivity, good flares. This cap really sings when fading fill colors.
Cons: steep angle which makes it hard to judge exacy where the paint will hit the wall since you're pushing the cap forward and down at the same time.
Overview: It is thin enough for outlines, soft enough for fades, comfortable enough to paint all day. However I'd prefer to rock an AP precise for outlines, ezrider or female fat for fills, and softie for fades. BUT if I were challenged to paint a piece with only one cap, this would be my pick.

These are nice, I I've been using them on Belton cans. They're comparable to the GO3, but there is absolutely no delay in spray cut off when you lift your finger, unlike the GO3. They have minimal Flair which I prefer for an outline cap, and get very very skinny if you ask them to. This will probably be my go-to outline cat moving forward, the paint Flows at a manageable rate, and you can have a little wobble in your distance from the surface without seeing huge variation in line thickness. There may be a better outline cap out there, but for someone like me who is not an expert, this one seems easiest to work with.

Just a follow-up on my last review. These actually work well but ONLY when seated on a Sekt adapter. I had good results on a can of rusto painters touch. This works because it bypasses direct contact to the valve. I still prefer the AP precise cap on rusto tho.
I tried cutting the retaining walls with a razor to get more clearance for use on Montana and Belton, but the issue is the stem is far too wide to fit into the valve opening. It takes about 10 lbs of pressure to get a spray on either can, and once it starts spraying it won't stop until pried off with a knife. Then you are left with a broken valve Absolute garbage. I ruined a can of paint trying to get this sh*t to work.
AP, did I get a bad batch or what? Bought these over a year ago, maybe the design has been changed since they first dropped?
These are my favorite steakers, but have some drawbacks. Pros: great size for the pocket and feel good in the hand. Super smooth in temperatures be above 40* or so. No sludgyness or skipping like some streakers. Twist back down for clean recapping. Cons: Not much material for you money, AP solids give you almost double the writes. Not great in comd weather, AP. steaks crush these in the winter. Not a wide color selection, although the available colors are fantastic. Not compatible with splitting, the base doesnt come our of the body. None the less these are my streaker of choice in most any condition.
These are nice for dreamy fills and splashes. They put down a lot of color and interact in interesting ways when layered. I picked up a set because I didn't want to burn through my One4all paint filling larger areas, the aqua twins do the trick. I use these before adding more opaque details and outlines with pain pens. They are different than a reagular illustration marker but I like the effects they give.
