    Slyle, has anyone made a test vid? here in Croatia we had similar caps to Wally caps on a fly killer spray from 70's,early 80's called "Flok" and they work so good with new euro pains like belton,sabotaz,montana etc etc,they are soft fatcaps but they are also great skinny caps,so crisp and clean,but they had a black dot on the exact same body as cmc's wally's,so i was wondering if they are the same...please link the test if someone did it yet.

    We had a short clip on our instagram. That is definatley something we need to put together. If the bodies of the cap are the same they are probably made by same company. The company makes so many styles of caps, they would be similar but might have small differences. Initially we sampled a black body cap, but opted for the white because that is how people in the US remember them.

    @Slyle CMC Hell yeah. I think I'm going to stop using IG completely and come back here.

    And maybe some new old paint specific threads just to make us feel more relevant...

    I just found the same cap on old grffitti remover cans by Klean-Strip.....same body as Wally with black nozzle. I would happily pay a small ransom for a handfull! This cap is what the Wally wishes it was. So soft and buttery and the maddest most consistent HUGE flares. On a can of Krylon it sounds like a euro can....soft like foam. No they definitely are NOT the same. Tested them side by side last night. The Wally has a funky shape where's the black nozzle .......the black nozzle is far superior in every way.

    What can were you using it on. Every can will react different with every brand. Pressure, Valve, Paint are all factors that may make a cap react different. Our CMC Wally cans work best on old valve krylon, and low pressure "Fancy" paints. Every brand will produce differen
    t results.
