Fuji Paint Sprayers are great if you are a hobbyist that works on small projects all the time. There’s a lot of fuss, a lot of mess, and a lot of lost time when working on smaller jobs. The Fuji Hobby Pro looks to change that for you.
Here’s how it worked during our test period.
Best Features of this Fuji Paint Sprayer
This HVLP spray system is based on an industrial-design no-bleed spray gun. You’re given pattern control from the knob, so you can have the correct fan pattern for painting at all times.
You can create a tightly controlled fan, or you can have a huge fan for fast coverage. It’s always up to you.
The spray gun itself offers a stainless-steel fluid nozzle and needle that works hard to prevent clogging. You don’t have to worry about the spray gun getting too hot because the handle is insulated for you.
And, because you’ve got 25 feet of hose to use, you can stay mobile in your shop or garage as you work.
What We Discovered with the Fuji Paint Sprayers
Many hobbyist machines tend to create a lot of overspray. If you’re a bit too close, you’ll find a lot of runs happening and not much forgiveness.
The Fuji Hobby Pro 2 HVLP Spray System is a little more forgiving.
You’ll still have overspray that needs to be planned for as you work, especially around the edges of your surface. With the included air control valve, you can reduce the amount of overspray you’re experiencing and limit the bounce back that happens.
The connections between the spray system and the HVLP sprayer itself are simple to use. Just tighten and you’re ready to go. The hose remains flexible as you work, and pressure loss just doesn’t happen.
With the included filters, you don’t even need to worry about long sessions of paint straining as you work.
We found the Hobby Pro to be a solid system that seems pretty easy to maintain, especially with the 1.8mm tip that comes standard with it.

What About Big Projects with the Hobby Pro?
This might be billed as a hobbyist machine, but it can get bigger jobs done as well. If you’re looking to paint a deck or even a house, the performance of this unit is beyond question.
We successfully used it on cabinets, exteriors, and decking. It looks and feels like a huge airbrush as you work.
It isn’t all roses when it comes to using the Hobby Pro.
What you won’t Love about Fuji Paint Sprayers
The system is quite noisy. We like that it is small and portable. Using it in a confined space, however, will make your ears ring if some sort of hearing protection is not used.
The fittings at the end of the hose can be a bit of an annoyance as well. They are secure, but they brush against you as you work sometimes. That can cause them to loosen, which means stopping to tighten them periodically.
Overall, we found that this Fuji Paint Sprayer does the work of sprayers twice its price and still provides superior results. We loved using it and think you will too.
