With filtering, there is no yes/no, there is only better/worse.

.5 micron is twice as good as 1 micron, and the small stuff is dangerous. So, the Wynn cartridge is better
A cartridge filter has A LOT more surface area. That means you get more airflow (less resistance) from a given pressure. The HF motor isn’t the greatest, so most folks notice they get quite a bit more suck from the cartridge as they do from the bag.

Of course 1 micron is better than 5 microns, so the shaker bag is better than the stock bag.

But yes, I would say the Wynn cartridge is worth the $80.

But it’s your budget and your lungs, so it’s hard for me to tell you you must get the Wynn. I did, and I’m glad I did.

You have a coupon for the HF, right? $149 is the going price, although a lot of us got it at $139 when there were coupons that good around.
