Default ArroWorthy Rembrandt Brushes

I ran into an old product rep in an SW store the other day and he gave me a 2.5" Arroworthy Rembrandt Semi-oval sash to try, after I told him about the picassos that I like.

I used it today to cut a room and a small bath. Very impressive!! Cuts straight and fast, no bristle loss, very stiff. Two coats of SW Emerald Satin. Since everyone commented on the microfiber rollers, I am going to order some and theses brushes from paintstore.com soon.

We are still having issues with the Picasso losing lots of bristles. I'm done buying them for now. Have gone back to the Alphas and Coronas.

Anybody have any updates on these?

I've been using the Picasso's, but I think my local store is bringing these in so I might try a couple of them.

I bought a bunch of sizes from paintstore.com

They are awesome!! The pluses: Cut extremely clean and fast. Hold a good amount of paint. I think they make a better corner than a piscasso. They are thinner, so makes sense.

The minus: hard to clean, getting the paint out of the ferule part is a chore. Had one brush loose some bristles after the fourth cleaning. Still works but I will start watching them.

For $10-12, they are a superb value.

For those of you near Kelly Moore stores, the new KM oval brush is just a rembrandt with KM branding.

My sales rep gave me one but I haven't had a chance to use it yet.

I bought a couple Henrys a few months back. Really like the 2.5 slim, but the regular feels to sloppy for me. I normally just use a 2.5 tradition, or betenol from Dulux. For my alkyds though I just grab whatever is cheap, usually easy glide

About the Kelly moore semi oval brush, my rep gave me one to try and its pretty nice, holds a really nice edge for cuting in tight and clean. But its made in china, which i believe the picasso and rembrant are too!

It's not rembrandt that makes them, its arroworthy. Same with the microfiber rollers, just rebranded arroworthy MF.

I don't mind the rembrandt. It's not as soft as the picasso, but for exterior work it will be fine. And at ~$9 each I will start picking them up as my brushes wear out.
