    I've been experimenting between the 319 and 321 graco tips with my gun on spraying. The pattern is the say its just the 321 is putting it down just a little thicker. Also noticed i can get away with using the 319 on sealing but need the 321 for new asphalt. What size have you guys been using?

    Used a 317 on newly sealed but rough lot wasn't happy with it. Going to pick up 321

    Ive noticed on rougher surfaces that 321 works better. I talked to someone today that swears by 319 only!

    I use the 319 we just started to stripe mid season here due to a line striper that didn't show up due to a family emergency. I am liking this and should of started this 5 years ago, no worries about setting up another party to meet our time frame.

    What kind of sprayer are u using. I got the 3400 graco and use a 321. It seemed the 319 wouldn't put it down thick enough, but I could just be walking to fast

    3400 I agree you can walk to fast with that tip. I have the 321 just never tried it cause the 319 worked. I am new to this and have a few jobs that were in the cold. What do recomend for striping in the cooler weather?

    I do the same as Ido when it's warm. Just takes a while for it to dry
