I always have a bit of a hard time putting the Graco seals in because that takes dexterity, or really small fingers, or both.

The Graco seals install the same way.

This is a project completed using Tritech tips. We used Smart prime by rust-oleum and Advance semi gloss in 2 different colors, except the handrail. We used BM alkyd urethane gloss for extreme durability.
The primer was sprayed with a tritech 211 single orifice tip. The paint was sprayed with a Tritech ff 212 tip.
No runs or sags with Advance which is typical due to its thin viscosity.
Definitely credit should be given to the superiority of Tritech ff tips as comparison to what we use to use, (Graco ff tips).
Of course I have a Tritech t-7 sprayer, and it is head and shoulders above my Graco 495. I sold the 495. Had no use for it after 1 year of use and still in like new condition.
Thanks to my Tritech rep. He went out his way to get these tips in my hand a couple of weeks back.
No longer are we reluctant to use the temperamental Advance.
The results we achieved are attributed to Tritech and the excellent tools of the trade that they manufacturer.

Adding to this thread again. We started another project and are having excellent results with Tritech FF tips and advance semi gloss.
This particular project has fluted casings and is extremely difficult to get a good finish into all of the cracks and crevices. Two coats of advance with no runs or sags. The finish is looking quite incredible.
Imo Tritech FF tips are the best.

I've got another set of cabinets to do with breakthrough coming up. Last time I used a graco ff 212 and had the same fingerings issues didn't matter what pressure I shot it at the tip would finger.

For the next set I'm gonna order a tritech tip, which tip guard do you need for them?

Unfortunately a Graco tip guard will not work. Though a Titan tip guard will work with the Tritech FF tips.

Zoomer, thanks for sharing your experiences with the Tritech tips. It's helpful for the rest of us since its a fairly new company.

Like you, I've had several Graco tips that continue to have fingers well beyond the pressure that they should have disappeared. Of course many painters probably don't realize that they have an issue with their tips because they always set the pressure on their pumps so high.

Maybe just the Graco RAC X won't work? Larger diameter for RAC X tips only.

I figured the old Graco housing (RAC V?) would be the same as Titan.

The beast that starts the sweet process. The ff tips are part of the success that continually happens when contractors give them a try.

You won't ever look back. In fact you might, like I did, wonder why you didn't get one of these sooner.
Rumor has it that Tritech is coming out with a T-9 next year. I'm sure it will blow the doors off of any Graco large contractor pumps.
Today we started spraying trim and some built ins on a 12,500 Sq ft house using Advance semi gloss.
After one coat in the 1000 Sq ft master B&B the homeowner and designer commented that it looked like semi gloss oil.
Not once did I ever accomplish this with my Graco and Graco ff tips.
