Mini-Review: Badger Renegade Velocity

I have been using this airbrush pretty much non-stop since the original unboxing. I started with the cheap Masters airbrush and I have to say that this is a noticeable improvement. I have heard plenty of people say that airbrush is actually secondary to a good air compressor when it comes to airbrush.  While I have to say that a better compressor is good, it is hard to fight with the results I have seen.

The Velocity is a gravity fed dual-action airbrush.  It comes standard with a .21 mm paint tip.  It has a fine thin line that flows evenly.  For paint, I typically use COM-ART.  It flows without adding anything, like flow-aid.

The grip is solid and has a nice heft.  I can see after prolonged use your hand might get tired but I use it 30 minutes at a time and don't have any issue. 

The one issue is the two fins that come off the tip.  Usually I like to clear a jam by covering the needle whole and running air through it to create a vacuum.  This makes it near impossible.

All in all, I have to say the this is product is well worth the money and a good investment.  It has helped me on numerous occasions and will remain in my arsenal.
