Default My brush is better than yours...

Here's the story:

Your stranded on a deserted island, and have to paint your way off it. You can only have one brush. Which brush would you choose, and why?

I'd take my Wooster 3" Badger. Why, because it's my favorite all-around brush. Not the best for fine oil work, but can still handle it.

Next?

Corona Cortez 2 1/2"

There is only one place in Milwaukee that even has Woosters, so I have never tried their latex brushes.

Corona Cortez 3" sash brush
Big enough to cut down cut-in time on big flats (walls/ceilings), yet firm and precise enough to paint bitty stuff if need be (muntins)

I can rip through 6 panel doors with that thang

You can get them here for sure. They don't sell them where I shop and I like the Corona's just fine. I have have used them both and I really like them (Wooster and Corona).

I think the Bestt Leibco and Purdy lines are junk...

To the Purdy guys, Chill, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Those Purdy guys are a touchy bunch...

I love my Purdy xl sprig!! Must say that I haven't tried Corona. I know one that I regret buying. I found a brush in the clearance isle at Wal-Mart. It is a Rubbermaid 3 inch. I came in a really nice plastic case, and had a fat old ergonomic rubber handle. Looked nice all full of nice flagged bristles. Well to make a long story short, first time I used it it shed 8 bristles. I thought I'd e-mail RubberMaid, but I haven't yet. Really great brush case! Happy painting.

I forgot about those

Well sounds like you bought a nice brush cover. Brush covers on good brushes suck, but cheap azz paint brushes get plastic covers that last forever.
