Hello Wes, how the heck are you doing? nice to hear from you. Now back to your question - this is not a recommendation, but a preference. I prefer a plastic cup, because, I can see the material and MORE importantly, it has a screw on type lid.

so there are no benefits to it over liners than being able to see how much clear is left? :shock: , i just purchased the entech conversion for my ls400 for clear and thought that maybe a cup might have advantages over a liner. :oops: , oh and always nice getting your feed on the world of paint!!! :mrgreen:

I prefer the 3M liners , see through it easier , and Less clean-up . I also think they are less messy , and you can turn your gun upside down and set it down if need be with out spilling paint or having to have a top loader gun hanger everywhere .
But that is just my 2 cents worth .

I tried those 3M liners & I didn't have very good luck when the paint was half gone the pattern got smaller and smaller i thought something was wrong with the gun but when i put the old metal cup back on it worked just fine I ask the 3M guy about it and he said something was wrong with my gun and i said well haw come it works with the metal cup and he didn't know. Oh well like you say if it ain't don't fix it D :|

Thats odd , I have been using them for 15 years or since their inception and never had a problem with them , and have used them on many brands of guns .
I like them as they sure save on thinner for clean up !
But like you say " If it ain't broke , don't fix it " :-)

Here is my take first of all I have and use both and with equal success two things I don't like the look and feel of the 3M it just doesn't feel balanced WTH
