Does anyone here use (or have used) an Iwata Triple Action Handle.

If so would appreciate your thoughts. Is it useful upgrade or is it unnecessary, more of a gimmick.

Have you read this:

I would consider it non essential. On the other hand I am so used to taking apart my airbrushes so I don't see any advantage.
When the needle gets so blocked that I can't pull it back with the trigger it needs a good cleaning. Usually a thorough cleaning is needed long before the needle sticks so badly.
I see it as an attempt to improve on something that does not really need an improvement but maybe I am just turning grumpy with age ...
