Some of that depends on what your local BM dealer stocks although they might bring something in for you. The Cabinet Coat is one although kind of pricey for new construction. That stuff levels out great. They have the Coronado 203 Satin and 204 S/G line which is a hybrid. Easy to work with and a better price point. They also have the Rust Scat product. Needs a name change but I know some guys that will use nothing else and swear by the Waterborne version. Say it's the toughest product you could find but I have not personally used it yet. It's also in the Coronado line from BM.
I recently sprayed a front door with the Acrylic Rust Scat. Performed very well. Great Adhesion and very durable. Sprayed pretty good from my airless/. Not sure how it brushes. Shoud be fine as it has a pretty long open time. 3-4 hr. recoat I believe.

Advance does level out nice, but I don't think I'll ever spray it again. Seem to have issues with runs every time, not to mention the recoat time. Scuff-x as some other posters have said seems to be much more user-friendly. If you want more leveling you can always just throw a little extender in there, still will be dry and ready to recoat in a couple hours . Seems to be available wherever Advance is as I believe it's a Benjamin Moore (ultra spec) product

I've used the ultra spec in an apartment building for trim, or in commercial settings. Definitely not the prettiest paint, but it is cross-linking. I can't see regal being tough enough for trim, at least not in a commercial setting.

Does the Cabinet coat level out well? I can't even get it tinted at any of the closest 3 stores to me, since it's not on gennex yet.
Cabinet Coat can be tinted on Gennex. I've been requesting they do it that way for probably 5 or 6 years now. I had an issue in the past with it cratering due to a reaction with one of the tints. The Ben Moore technical specialist suggested that it be tinted with the Gennex instead and we had no problem. I've been doing it that way ever since. I think you have to specify it though. If I ever deal with a new person, I have to tell them because they will automatically use universal tints.
