It’s the first one that I have used. I typically shoot the satin. If you want to do some additional experimenting, I have shot some cheap water based latex from HD (like $ 7.00 qt.), thin with the windshield washer solvent and Flotrol type product and then shot the HD inexpensive brand of water base poly for floors (like $ 40.00 gal in the plastic jugs), once again satin, over the top. You have to shoot clear poly over latex or it will remain “sticky”. The clear poly, which you can coat over the top right away eliminates the paint from remaining “sticky/tacky”. I have finished a whole set of kitchen cabinets with SW oil based sandable primer, numerous coats of latex and clear poly all in one day with my hvlp gun. The finish seems real durable.

Lastly, on another note, the SW Pro Classic is very durable. I have it on my kitchen cabinets and after 4 years, they look as good as the day I finished them.
