See if you can test a couple different set-ups. There are Reps that travel around and will let you have one for a while to demo.

I've demo'd all the top guns, but didn't see any reason to replace my older, but good condition, Wagners. New guns do have some advanced features, but an older gun will still do the job.

I personally don't like the new Wagner guns, and prefer my older C4s. Wagners have been very good for me, but if I was starting from scratch I'd probably go with Gema.

In the end, it's the Wizard and not the Wand that makes the difference.

Been looking pretty hard at the Wagner sprint 601 with the fluidizer. It’s 4600 bucks but I think it will be worth it in the long run. Second option would be the Wagner PEM-X1-CG only reason for considering that one is I change colors a lot and do a lot of small jobs really seems like I need both but can’t swing two 4500 setups

The second is a cup gun (CG) - right?

I'd suggest trying one before buying one. I've tried both the Wagner and the Gema cup systems - and they ain't that great IMO. I was really hoping they were.

A box feed is the most versatile. Get some additional hoses so you don't have to clean them as much, just switch for common colors. Quick color changes aren't a big deal after you do a few.

I didn't like the balance and feel of the new Wagner gun.

I use an EZ50 all the time. You just have to know when to move to the big gun.

Sometimes I use both of them on the same piece. EZ for tight and Faraday areas and the Wagner for the rest.

I’m going to make a call to the Gema rep today and get some details.

The Gema unit is about 1000 more than the Wagner. Is it worth it???

Can't say for sure, but I'd make it a point when it comes to negotiating if you decide you want it.

I can almost guarantee they have some room to negotiate. Tell them you like their gun better, but you have to buy the Wagner because of the price.
