Adie Roberts gets the chance to have a look at the iwata Eclipse HP-CS and do a spraying test to see if it really has the all-star versatility that it claims, and the fact that Adie is a Harder & Steenbeck fan.

Nice review!

I have the same airbrush and I clean the needle with soft Q-tip, it will not damage the needle and cleaning is very quick.

Thank you for that tip/information I will definitely give that a try. I am amazed about this airbrush I have always been a Harder & Steenbeck fan but this has certainly made me think!

I've used a few airbrushes in the past: 3 different Badgers, and an Aztek ( ). I've been using this Iwata Eclipse model for the last 2 - 3 years and am totally impressed with it!

I've been using this brush for a year, and found the feel of it and the build quality to be way better than the previous airbrush that I used. No complaints whatsoever.
