Default Spray Tips

What tips are you carrying at your stores?
After reading the FF threads I am looking at several options that I had no clue existed i.e Bedfor and Tri Tech
Any recommendations or reasons why I should carry in particular

Well, Graco seems to be the most popular for both regular orifice and fine finish. I recommend getting Tritech tips & tip guards.

I'm a big fan of just about everything Graco. But not the tips.

They've got that fatal backfire flaw that other tips don't have. Get the tip slightly askew in the guard and pull the trigger and you'll get a face full of paint.

Titan tips won't do that at all and are cheaper.

I haven't tried the Tri tech, but they sound interesting.

So far I've used nothing but rac5's and racx's from Graco and have been happy with them. After reading Zoomer's recommendation to try TriTech tips, I will eventually give them a shot. I recently bought quite a few fine finish tips of different sizes from Graco so it will be a while.

Do the Tritech tips require their own tip guard or are they compatible with other brands like the Titans and some other brands are?

I believe they're compatible with a Titan tip guard.

Lol. Yep, that's happened to me before. But after one or two times, I learned not to do that anymore.
