        Wagner Flexio 590 is at the top of the list. If anyone has experience with it, can you give me the pros/cons of it?
        Or if you can recommend another product, please do.
        Thanks for all replies.

        No action on this post?
        Too bad, I also am curious to know if the Wagner Flexio is any good. They look good in the commercials, but that's what commercials are supposed to do right?

        I'll add my two cents. I'm not familiar with the sprayer you mentioned but I bought a Wagner hand held sprayer about 8 years ago and hated it - the spray was weak and it had lots of little parts that made it a pia to clean. Several years ago I bought a Wagner sprayer where you fill the hopper with paint. It worked great, I painted a bunch of cedar board in no time but it took 10x as long to clean everything as it did to do the actual job. If they have a high quality gun with a plastic tube that can be placed directly into the paint gallon, that would be ideal.
