Good news! Iwata has made some very user friendly changes to their Micron series with out raising the cost. The new versions still use the same needles, nozzles, & head systems. They also perform & spray in the same unique way the original Microns do – so no changes in atomization.
The new Version 2 Iwata Micron models have the following improvements:
-New Trigger: The more ergonomic trigger style is slightly tilted forward and rectangular in shape, preventing trigger fatigue.
-Cap Dock: Located in the back of the pre-set handle is the "cap dock." A spring loaded threading you can screw in your crown cap onto to prevent from losing it.
