When using 3/4 I use lambsies big 2-1/4 core merrino's
when using 1/2" I have been using purdy colussus and I just recieved a wooster cover I am going to test drive.
When back rolling I use a 18" 1/2 that gets tossed at the end.

It's important to know if you are doing smooth or textured walls. What you need out of a roller would be quite different.

Suggestion - to make this thread a little more substantive, lets put down why we like them, where we use them, etc.. Usually these threads turn into a pi55ing contest anyways, so let's make the best of it before it turns.

For ceilings 3/4 sheep skin. Very little spatter. Wall with texture sheep or polorbear Polor bear because they are fairly cheep and hold a lot of paint but do spatter a lot. Whik (They make mini frames and so on) or something like that had a longer nap on it that I got as a demo and has held up and buts out the paint.

3/8" Wooster Pro Doo-Z for nice dry walls. Larger nap for other surfaces outside of block.

1-1/4" Colossus for block filling.

I don't roll ceilings almost ever, since we're mostly industrial painting and new construction.

- Dynamic 30 milimeter for rough services( tossed at job done),
- Apollo 12 mill knitted string lint free wool fabric for walls or flat ceilings and for any sheen (cleaned twice a day),
- 5 or 10 mill Apollo for doors( same as 12 mill apollo above).
- 4 inch Whiz for cutting in.

I just love those sting rollers.

Using a 3/4" colossus for the first time, especially with the purdy 1-3/4 core system - is like using a mop on your walls - it takes a little faith at first to trust it - but it really paints like a mofo!
