Wagner Flexio 990 Painter. I like to paint. But painting does not like me.  Years of abuse to my hands and wrists has left me with a muscular attention span with a brush of about 10 minutes.  After that, my fingers lock up and feel like they are on fire.  So when I had the opportunity to put the Wagner Flexio 990 to some testing, I was excited to give it a try.

An email came in one day introducing me to this product. Before that, I had never heard of it. It claimed that it was a refinishing product that “would change the way the world looks at home improvement.” Ever seen Mr. Spock on Star Trek raise that eyebrow in skepticism? I did that. So with curiosity peaked, I agreed to try a sample of the product. A bit later, a box showed up at my door. I must say that opening the box was a bit anti-climactic.
