There re a lot of great pro units on the market to pick from. It all depends on how deep your pockets are? The Gema units are very well liked and some like the Wagner but we are talking $$$$.
How long have you been coating and what have you been using?

Your question has been ask many times on here and a lot of good answers and advice has been given. You need to look around for some of the post and with any luck you may find the info you are wanting.
All I have said is said just for meanness so I don't have to argue with anyone!

I'm also back in the market for a new gun. I recently upgraded from the Eastwood dual voltage gun to a prismatic es02 WF. The Eastwood is great besides the tight corners I thought the prismatic gun would be a great upgrade. The es02 is great when it isn't getting plugged up with powder or charging the hair on my arms instead of the powder. Sadly those problems have persisted and I'm very disappointed in the gun. I've made enough money with the Eastwood that I can afford something up to 3k. I mostly coat motorcycle frames and rims. The Parker gx7000 seems like it might be a good choice but I haven't found many reviews. I hear a lot about gema and Wagner but can only find outdated gema guns for sale. Any help or advice would be appreciated!

I use the new Wagner box feed. Works great, but you won't get a new one for under $4k. Lots of Gema users in my area too, but I don't like them as well. Mine has an air purge feature that cleans out the hoses between colors, so final cleaning and color changes are quick and easy. Very versatile with lots of memorized preset slots for different applications. Very user friendly. Whatever you go with, try to buy from a local dealer that services what they sell. Having issues with a gun and having no local support sucks, as you have learned the hard way. Best of luck!
