Default The best, longest lasting chinex brush.

We use chinex brushes for the majority of our interior work. Wooster, Corona and Purdy. All three are used. One in particular is best imo. I'm curious as to the opinions of others who use these brushes.

I have used the Purdy's Bow & Swan. I feel they don't hold up to a lot of heavy use and wear quick.

I prefer the Bestt Liebco Cape Cod & Colorado. They will take more abuse
and hold up longer in my experience.

Use to get them at Kelly Moore's, now order on line.
Thanks Zoomer

Been very happy with everything Corona has to offer. The chinex is particularly nice.

I like the coronas for trim as they seem a bit softer, and the woosters for cutting in and exteriors because they seem a little stiffer. I probably use a 3" Wooster chinex 80% of time.

Purdys seem to stay softer and last longer. Wooster seems to retain bristles/ filaments the longest. Corona seems to be the easiest right out of the keeper. I think Purdy takes the title, but only by a hair.

I agree on the trim work.

I resisted even trying a chinex for a couple years. Mainly because they didn't look like my normal brushes and I'm kinda stubborn like that. Glad I did because I'm a big fan. I hate cleaning my other brushes now.

I recently switched to Wooster. Coronna makes a nice brush too.

This is a bit off topic but I just discovered that Proform Technologies, inc headquarters is only 20 minutes from where I live.

Coincidence? You decide

Just tried the new wooster today. Incredible brush right out of the keeper. We used ben eggshell on knockdown texture walls with flat builder grade paint. Very impressed with this brush. It holds a lot of paint and the bristles hold firm to release paint well. I'm purchasing several 3" and 2 1/2" angle sash on monday. Excellent brush.

Funny, I did a couple weeks ago. They accidentally thought I was in Rock something or other in WY. Maybe it was Rock Springs?

See, I would have to agree, chinex I def the best for a nice smooth release, and the bristles just seem to naturally form a line. I am just an apprentice, but a very experienced, custom painting apprentice, I'm close to being able to work any job in a year of intensive learning. Before I could cut cut good with everything, my boss just turned me loose, creating the lines, on heavily textured stucco, he did honestly not know how well a broke I. Chinex can flow at that te in comparison, he said he liked harder bristles, so o e day he passed me a chinex, and I put just a little less pressure on it, the ****ing straight lines drew themselves, I would agree chinexis superior for maintaining a straight line under any condition, and holding and applying the paint , compared to other blends or straight nylon, plus it cleans up easier. Buuuuutttt, I recently tried the Zibra 2 " angled sash brush.... It isn't chinex, but holy **** it is better! I lived how how chinex released so evenly, and kept it's shape. Whatever the **** Zibra uses, it does the same, x 2, fine cuts are effortless, only time I use a one inch is rolled edges,it holds as much as a 3" , release it perfectly smooth, it leaves no brush marks, and washes out in seconds, seriously, whatever the **** Zibra makes their brush out of, thank you!!!
