They work really well and they are easy to clean.
The brushes are great.
Ok, I have been an armature painter all my life...( I've owned 4 home and painted them all myself ) This by far is the best paint brush I have used.
The best of the best in paint brushes.
They were great.
The Purdy XL was terrible by comparison.
I gave up on the XL and washed it up 20 minutes after it came out of it's factory packaging and after drying took a photo of the practically new XL and the used Pro next to each other.
No cheating, no fluffing--- this is just how they dried.This is absurd enough that I have not even opened the 1.5 or the 2" brushes that came with this "value pack" for $20 so it's conceivable that only the 1" one sucks but I'm dubious.
Are these knock-offs?
I will assume that most of these folks are painting fences.Note: the photo of the packaging shows a 2" brush box but the old 1.5" brush used in the test is shown.Update: I found a brush that I like as well as my really old Purdy brushes: Corona Chinex Professional.
