Graco Rac X FF Low Pressure Tips, just released

Since there hasn't been any mention of it here on PT, Graco just released their new fine finish low pressure tips. They're supposed to allow you to spray at about half the pressure of the the regular fine finish tips. It's been quite a while since I've been excited about a new product, but these will be a game changer.

Pretty sure Titan has just put their version out too. Although they're not available in any of my local stores that I've seen, I ordered a bunch. Here's a link to those who're interested. Ask your local vendors for more details.

Note: I mentioned that it seems to spray a bit slower, but that is probably mainly because I am using them on a gx19 instead of a 395.
Hi guys new to the forum I'm a plasterer to trade and started doing a lot of airless plaster. I bought some fflp tips last week to have a play with.

Sorry I have no picture of the spray patterns as I was just using old scraps of plasterboard. I'm very impressed

What's the going rate at the Paint Stores for the new FF LP spray tips?

I'm seeing them for $36.99 Shipped on Ebay.

You know Sherwin and pricing, so it's all a negotiation. The new FFLP tips should be the same cost as what you were paying for the original FF tips, since I'm pretty sure the new FFLP tips will be replacing the original FF tips completely as soon as they've liquidated all old stock.

That $36.99 price is ok if you're not making plans to go into a SW store anytime soon, but if you are, they should be able to beat it by a few bucks. I'll have to double-check my price sheet, but pretty sure I'm right at $31.99 for in-store purchase.

I just called. Nothing in stock price on the $37ish. :sad:

So I think I'm gonna buy them from you. :wink:

I had two on order, one from SW and one from my other main supplier, Miller. SW charged me $36 and Miller $55. When Miller hit me with that I told them they needed to reassess their price and they did. Got credited with the difference as a result. I think their regular price is now going to be $37.50(?).

Ebay it is for me then. :smile:

Let me know. If you're getting it for that we should be as well.

I prefer to buy locally as most of you know by now. But if I can't purchase locally, most of my online shopping is from Amazon. Hard to beat, especially if you have their Prime service.

One of their VPs lives one block over from us. He commutes up to Seattle for four days a week in his own plane. And no, we don't live in a particularly fancy neighborhood, they just like the area and town.

I went with a 518 this time. Curious how that would work for priming drywall. Might make the 395 better for drywall priming on smaller jobs since my big old airlessco needs a new prime valve and has been sitting idle for a few years now. I don't really want to fire up the old sprayer for a basement prime job.

Local paint store gouged us in the 50's too. Going to talk to him tomorrow.

I don't think my local Miller store was actually trying to gouge me - we have too good of a relationship for that to happen. I just think my local SW decided to sell them for a lot less. In fact, a buddy of mine bought the first two our local SW had and they charged him $48 apiece, When the SW rep found out he told the manager to sell them lower because he figured everyone else would be. Does let you get an idea of how wonky and capricious the pricing of things can be.
Update: $35.99 is my price. $31.99 for regular Rac X Tips. Here I thought I was all special and stuff. Turns out I'm not.

Well damn! Now all the work I put into that irate letter to SW corporate was all for naught.
