Default HVLP Waterborne spray finishing options?

Is there a better waterborne spray option than Minimax Procrylic? Something as easy to use, affordable, and with local available?

In the past, I have sprayed a bunch of latex with a Graco/Earlex HV2900 HVLP unit. Thinning with Floetrol and water with good results.

Now, I've started spraying Miniwax Procrylic with good results. Thin coats and move fast. Thinning was not required to get it to flow thru the viscosity cup in less than the required 160 seconds. Wood sealer was mandatory on the plywood cabinet carcasses. Procrylic brings out the depth of the wood without adding color.

When I finally kill this Earlex unit, I'll upgrade to a Earlex 5500 or maybe a Fuji.

I use MinWax Oil-Modified Polyurethane with my Fuji unit and am very pleased with if. No thinning, fast drying, and 2-3 coats does the job for me. I get it locally at Lowe's. HD does not carry the oil-modified. Don't like the non oil-modified.
