    Default Aervoe paint stick

    Has anyone ever used one of these. I'm thinking of ordering one because the trigger looks comfy. Maybe get rid of some of the blisters on my trigger finger.

    It looks like the old blackhandled ones we used to use. Thoe needed paint cans with a long tip to work. Definitely more comfortable

    That's what I'm worried about. I still have two of the Fox Valley black handled ones. I love the trigger but all these new angled tip cans don't work with it.

    Golden:

    Have used the same Aervoe paint stick every day for four years.
    I find it light weight, relatively comfortable.

    After much abuse, getting thrown, dropped, layed in snow, mud, been through hundreds of rains or snow storms, etc. she is starting to show her age.

    The trigger sticks like crazy now and is kinda wobbly.
    The little trigger at the bottom seems to get gummed up and testy to use so have to scrape it clean about once a month or so.

    The little wheel thing came off after a few months and I never bothered replacing it.

    Have not used any other kind of paint gun so have no reference point for comparison.

    Just my thoughts.

    Other than the sticky trigger have been happy with it.
    Success is a journey, not a destination...

    I spottted these up here and grabbed 2, not real crazy about them so far.
    1, the trigger is just a bit too low for comfort, I end up pulling it sideways as well as up.
    2, handle is fatter then I like,
    3, does NOT like oil based krylon!! It's ok with the water base, but I had to bend the "tab" a bit so it pushes the tip enough to spray oil, need to bend it a it more now.
    it DOES feels different, not bad, think I just need to get used to it and tweak it a bit more.
