Comparison of the Precise 200 and 155 Anthem Badger Airbrushes

Today I am responding to a request to provide a comparison of the Precise 200 Badger Airbrush and the 155 Anthem Badger Airbrush.  You may think me a little biased in saying both are great brushes….they really are.  The key to deciding on any airbrush is to consider your purpose.  If you want to airbrush the details on a small model, this will require a brush with precision.  However, if you are creating body art or canvas art you will need a brush that is for artistic applications.  My Badger team created 2 videos to give you a close look at each brush and the tech specs along with recommended application usages.

Yes, the Precise 200 and the 155 Anthem have similar specs but the Precise is a single action brush versus the Anthem which is a dual action brush.  Check out the videos and pick your brush with confidence.
