Default Wooster Pro Classic Easyflo Brush

Here are some pics for those of you who have not heard about this brush yet. I think I picked it up at Lowes. Very impressive!









Look for the review coming soon on my site. Purdy Clearcut vs. Wooster Pro Classic Easyflo.

I'm interested to see it compared to the Wooster Ultra Pro Firm Lindbeck, which is usually considered to be Woosters best brush.

Since the easyflo is big box brush from Wooster I am assuming it will not be better then much out there, buy your Wooster's from a paint dealer... every check out the Wooster catalog?? the have a DIY section and most of it is available and the big box stores...

Its very nice actually, performs much like the Benjamin Moore brush they make too, the 65125. I need more time with it but it appears to be less firm than Ultra Pro Firm Lindbeck, less spring and I feel it holds more paint and has a nicer, wider stance both on the wall and when cutting the side edge of a casing for example.

Just initial thoughts on the easyflo.

Did you get it half price?
Because it seems to me your missing half the bristles.

He likes them like that,that is why he does all his shopping at Lowe's and Home Depot. He still insists they are the same brushes sold at normal paint stores.

guessing it doesn't match up well to the higher priced brushes, but it says professional quality on the cover, which wooster doesn't really lie about from my experience.

I used to use the wooster brushes until the waterborne paint formulas came out. I had a hard time getting the bristles to stay together. Have since switched to a 2 1/2" sash white chinex brush by Corona or the chinex Gen X by E&J. The paint rolls off the bristles during clean up, they load well and cut a nice fine line....................

Well my favorite brush in the Wooster Silver Tip 2 1/2 angled, and wooster puts "semi-professional" quality on them.
And they are definitely the best quality brush I've used. and I've used a lot of brushes, 10-25 dollar range

onto the topic of the thread.
Picked up a pro classic, and a pro classic easy flo today just because I needed a brush and lowes was the only place I could get a ride to.
Will be using this tomorrow.
the easyflo looks nicer and seems better made, just from appearance, better than the normal pro classic.
but the pro classic looks yikes-ush. bristles running away from the team and such.

I think the Corona Cortez makes a perfect brush for most low VOC latex coatings now a days.

the easy flo actually was pretty good.
I think they just took my precious silver tip and threw in some nylon *_*

the pro classic and the pro classic easyflo
I'd give both a 6/10
the normal pro classic, only thing I like about it is it holds a decent amount of paint.
but it can mess up cutting a fine line, as the bristles are just not on the same track as the other bristles...(nylon and polyester)

the easyflo doesn't hold as much paint, but it cuts better lines, feels smoother, looks nicer(bristles on mine are silver and blue while the normal pro classic is ugly brown)
But the Wooster Silver Tip is cheaper than both, and much better so, these pro classics are obsolete.

Jack Rauhl is the most cutting edge painter around. I would be surprised if anything he was peddling was obsolete. He may prefer this brush because the ferrule is made out of the same steel as locomotives so it can withstand his superhuman speeds. Ordinary ferrules melt right in his hand. He actually has to get his wooden handled brushes treated with fire retardant. Ok, just kidding. Jack is kind of a caricature of himself though.

I've always liked the 3 1/2 inch angled sash from wooster..called the "Jaguar"
It always held tons of paint, and helped out with dipping into bucket.
Any ways...have a good day
