I don't know if anyone has experienced this with this tip yet but after awhile spraying, the gun will build up back pressure and hold the needle open so without warning you'll let go of the trigger but it's like you didn't. Yeah. Emergency ensues.

It's not like when you have a worn needle where it pees out when you release the trigger. It's like a ghost is holding the trigger and won't let go.

Wish I had that on video. It's funny... In hindsight.

The very first time we used a FFLP tip we had that problem. We just assumed the gun had dirt in it stopping the needle to seat. It stopped after 30 seconds or so and we haven't had that problem again. Maybe it was the tip, maybe dirt or maybe the same ghost.
