    You'll get lots of opinions on this topic, but seriously, check out Harder & Steenbeck airbrushes. They are German made. Google - Precision German Airbrush

    I bought $16 double action airbrush brand new from ebay, I'll never use anything else, had expensive ones they suck for the money you spend

    I have pasche, Keats, badger velocity and badger krome.

    The badger krome is a very good air brush.

    If you're going to do mainly wts, a pashce single will do everything you need and then some. With it set up right, you can paint any fish with it as well. They are the work horse of the industry, been using the same one for 20+ years. Oh, I have a velocity, and its a really nice brush, but the pasche will do everything you need it to do set up right.

    I have yet to find a decent double action. IMO they are all crap, All of mine are badger 200's and badger 200-20 for detail

    I like the Iwata double action top feed. they are easy to clean. A little pricey but parts are easy to get as well.

    Yes one of the most opinionated topics to discuss. I started with paasche talon and didn't like it at all. I know several taxidermist who use their products with great results but I never cared for the quality. Since then I have upgraded to an Iwata siphon feed and a badger gravity feed and I think it was money well spent.
