same here, my 3 flat split but my 2.5 sash is fine. I soak mine too. I love this brush for interior trim. I'll probably go ahead and buy a case and just clean it after use. Thanks for posting that pic

One of my favs for sure, and I will order more. Hopefully they will fix the issue with the flat. I am pretty sure its the wood used, and something with tighter rings is needed.

Do you know anything about the manufacturer? Are they a new company? I'm just curious because I've been using Coronas for the last 15 or so years and been happy so far.

I guess I'm just supprised I didn't know about this brush that a lot of you seem to be using and liking for the most part. The first I heard about it was a post of Jack Pauls here a while back.

Its a company from South Dakota I think. Asked for a sample, and had one with in a week. Used it for a few weeks and liked it.

Brushes are moderately priced too. I have a 2 1/2" angled sash beaver tail that I wouldn't trade for any brush made.

PM JP I am sure he could tell you more than I. I can't remember the company reps name, he is a member here and responded in a proform thread several times.

You guys that are getting free samples, and even the ones paying for them, be sure to go to the mfr website or Facebook page and comment, and send any links to blogs you create.

SL, that is pretty unreal how that handle split like that. You hang them in water with the heel of the brush out of the water right(not trying to insult your brush maintenance skills buddy). I'm just curious if too much water could have had a factor in that brush splitting like that. man.

It shocked me, I have had handles split before but not just by leaving them in water. Its a new small company, and I think they will get it right once they learn of the problem.

I really think its just fast growth wood that is the culprit, and its compounded by three nails straight in a row like that instead of on a diagonal.

It's odd but I always wonder if somehow I'm not paying for them while looking at my receipts from Ben Moore.

Touche, but the finish quality doesn't make you wonder if you should have bought another product.

I just bought one yesterday and I was very impressed! I was using Eco Spec and this paint brush handled it very well....It holds a ton of paint [semi-oval] and the brush always seems to hold a nice edge in every circumstance..It cleans up easily...They aren't too costly either....This is one of the best brushes I've ever used.

I still have the original sample they sent me. For sure the toughest model they make.

Pics of it in this article on brush cleaning.

I have some on the way...I will try them out and will post back . They might be the next best thing since sliced bread...might also take a bit to adapt being since I have used the same brush for so many years now . Apparently there is a Canadian distributor...I had KENT bring them in for me which is a company here in Atlantic Canada .

I know people seem to like them but I will continue to boycott them since they're made in China.

I'm with you... but I didn't like how dark it was when I tried to boycott light bulbs.

As long as I have a choice I'll exercise my right to do so.
The way things are going, someday that choice may no longer exist.
