Oh my that's a lot for a brush! Have you tried looking for E&J brushes? Their Gen X brush is just as good if not a hair better than the Cortez and Excalibur.

The Dulux Firm flex chinex/nylon blend brushes are great. I started using them a few years ago, and if I never used another brush I'd be fine with that. We were just in the city for a week and I can't even remember how many of them I bought at almost half price. Regular $18, on for $10. Great deal.

That is about $28 in US dollars including shipping and sales tax.

Ya, I guess with all that snow you get over there it's hard to get anywhere too far!

I tell ya what, I'm pretty impressed with the Corona lineup. My goodness, I don't know what took me so long to come around to Corona!

Why the Excalibur cuts a beautiful line, as does the Vegas brush. I like mine in a 2.5in angle sash style.

Our guys love these..easy for cutting in walls and a breeze to clean and very very affordable IMO . Work the paint suppliers and they will work with you if they think they got your paint business . Many brushes have just priced themselves way out of the contractor market . Primers kill brushes and the last thing I want is a 20 buck brush spread eagled after a one time use . The second pic is one we use a lot for ceilings and trim work. Softer and holds a nice load and again...for an oval it is quite reasonable in bulk .

I use those and am happy with them, but they are called NOUR, I also like the Pintar Chinex Legend. Pintar is a Canadian company.
