I have been thinking of getting a Apollo HVLP turbine system does anyone think they are worth the money? Is there another HVLP turbine out there for less money that is as good or better?

You need CFM, not PSI

without high CFM they all become cupguns, not the worst thing for finishing but far from true “high volume low pressure” HVLP

You’re far better off with a cheap cupgun from harbour Frieght or Princess Auto with an inexpesnsive compressor.

I live in Florida where the humidity is very high so the with a water separator and filters my 30 gal storage tank does not keep up with the volume of air I need to finish what I am working on and I have to wait for the compressor to catch up. With a turbine system air is never an issue as I understand. I like a number of other features that Apollo guns have namely the level of atomization the gun itself is claimed to have. I looked at the Fuji spray heads and they don’t have as many holes if that means anything. You can lay a pin stripe with there 1050VR.
