    Rusto Painters Touch also has a female 360 comfort cap now.
    American Accents are still male

    that shit pisses me off. why change the MF tips? Krylon was peace with a pink, or an ultra thin, or most any other. FUCK! I was in denial when my boy told me about this, but when i saw it i was crushed. The cans are dope for big handstyles, but i don't want to do throws or pieces with the shit, i want my old fats n thins.

    obviously its going to piss off all the writers... thats why they did it.
    Sooner or later there will be female caps for graffiti, it just takes time.
    fuckin arms race

    dude a great way to get around these bullshit caps is that u go to the dollar store and there is some shitty fake body spray and you take off the tip from the body spray and since its a female tip it will fit on the krylon I think that the tip is pretty fat

    the fan cap system krylon is different then your usual female cap system
    Ie.
    Typical female valve. (the one you are referring to in your post)

    (new painters touch, new WD-40, Raid, many house hold sprays use the above system now)

    new Krylon valve

    if you look close at the new cap, it uses a pin to push down the valve.
    the typical female caps will not work on the new krylon

    Somewhere on this forum someone posted something helpful. Go to any grocery store and rack the caps from PAM cans. I doubt it'd work for the new Krylon though. Given the pin thing and all...

    ive never had a problem with krylon, no drips... nothing. i only paint with NY Thins (except for fills, then i use rusto fats or the caps from areosol foundation sealant. It sounds like a cannon and its a bit messy, but it fills FAST the hole in the cap is equal to the hole in the can. BTW you can get the equivalent to rusto caps from elmers areosol glue ;)

    I can no longer find any old krylon :( I did manage to cop a bunch of cans of ultra flat black that were hiding when they first starting changing to the new crap.

    luckly, I still have about 20 cans of Krylon that I racked up over the course of 2-3 months that I really haven't used at all except for the basic white fill and black outlines. All had interchangable caps. But yeah, I'm sure all the spray cans are gonna have non-interchangable caps. I guess the new ones that rotate could be nice for stencling. I mainly do stencils so a good horizontal spray is perfect..

    Looks like the only ones that are going to have interchangable caps are gonna be the cheap store brands. But whatever, KRYLON is finally becoming smart and making wise moves. It only took like, what, 25 years?
