why use a cutback liner?
I have used a spaulding and rogers liner for a few years now. But ive noticed many artists using cutbacks. I purchased a Specialist from Pulse a few days ago and did a little practicing on my leg. It seems to be running well, but the throw is quite long compared to my old spaulding and rogers. Any technical description as to why this is an advantage would be greatly appreciated.

To be a little more clear: What are the advantages of using a cutback outliner(with a long stroke) compared to a regular outliner that has a very narrow stroke?

yeah, especially if you keep a short stroke and the right spring set-up. I know people who swear by using a cut-back liner to do B&G shading as well.

Re: why use a cutback liner?
A cutback liner is meant to be used with a short stroke.
If you are using a cutback liner with a long stroke then you don't need a cutback. That defeats the purpose of the setup.

The cutback setup has a faster response, it's good for quick outlining, and IMO not good for building lines or packing white.

But I use them just for what they are meant for and love them. However my new liner is the machine I used to use as a shader. lol.

I've tried cutbacks before and they weren't for me, I just got the fk irons aluminum pyro as a conventional liner and it is f@#king awesome!
