Chevy versus Ford? No way in hell you guys are gonna convince you're right and they're wrong. Somewhere on this forum is a thread or two about what brush is best, and probably a few about rollers, mini-rollers, paint, sprayers, pants, etc.. They all have high post counts. Why? Hell, I don't know.... Must be because everyone likes to argue. Do me a favor though. Keep it civil and the politics out of it. Thanks.

Purdys feel like you're trying to cut in with a wet sponge tied to a stick. EJ, Corona and even the Picassos are sharp cutting from the box and fantastic to use. If I have to buy a Purdy, say I'm on a site without my tools, end of shift I pitch it or give it away.

Anybody use the Corona 3" ovular sash.
Man. I can dip that thing once and cut as far as the arm can reach. That thing is incredible. Definitely not for the novice painter. Also takes about 15 mins to wash all the paint out after. Lol.

Haven't used the oval. My favorites are the 3" Wooster ftp or the Corona 3" block. I hate sash brushes. Pretty much the same brush, really. Definitely loads and unloads very well and takes a minute to wash out. But it they do wash out very cleanly. The paint doesn't stick to the bristles as much as some other brushes that I've used.

I been eyeballing it.I got to say I didnt like ovals for a while I thought they were clunky and unnecessary.I use flat block brushes mostly.Then I was given a Purdy 3'' angular oval.Thats two things I'm not big on.(BTW I'm not exclusively Purdy) The thing destroys.I love it.Even the fact that it is angular is a great help it hits the corner and your done and on to the next thing in no time.The thing flys.I'm sure the corona zane (I think thats the one you mean) is killer too.I have a 3" wooster alpha oval it seems dang good but I'm still doing exteriors.The wooster alpha are great but does anyone know if they are sorta throw aways like silvertips?

Could you atleast leave it up long enough for me to read it?I think if it is nothing that wouldn't get you thrown off a job site it should stay.I can take it.I once worked for a guy that called me a faggot all day long.One day I took his ladder, loaded it up on my truck and drove off,leaving him on the roof.I still have that ladder.Be nice to your employees.

I dont know what you're referring to when you asked about leaving something up. If you have a question about pt rules or decisions please feel free to PM a mod or @Cricket and someone will happily help.
Also, if you have not done so already, please feel free to peruse the pt posting rules. It may clear up a few things before stepping into the deep end.just a suggestion.

I prefer Coronas these days but I'm old enough to remember when Purdy was a damn good brush. I still have a couple of Moose's (Meese?) that I use from time to time. The Moose was my go-to brush for interior work and The Swan was good for that too but was better as a damn-good warehouse brush.

People complain about this and that and, sometimes, even the other thing when posting, but, ya know, all things in <tee hee> *moderation*.

I can use anything that can apply the paint on. Prefer chinex any brand, Wooster Silver tip, don't last, but cheap to replace. They do fine job.

Wondering why this thread hasn't been locked down after some of the comments.

One more time: The Moderators are here to keep an eye on things and not let stuff get out of hand. Not too many times Cricket won't agree with the decisions made. This isn't your workplace. This is a publicly viewed Forum that does require approval to join. I'd like to think that since we are all professionals in our trade, we are also adults.

Nothing wrong with having fun. Nothing wrong with following the rules either.

And, fair warning. If you think that the fact that LPC is a woman and won't take action, that is a mistake on your part. Cricket is also a woman. A little more patient maybe but her decisions stand firmly.

I like Purdy sprig and swan styles and I have had brushes last for many many years with proper cleaning and occasional trimming of the shorter and frayed or twisted bristles. They have a high bristle count and ability to wick which I think is the key to a quality brush.
Purdy does have different styles some with thicker softer bristles which did not work well but may have their use but
I buy factory seconds for less then 5 dollars in small lots that usually are as good as ones from the store that sometimes have a cracked handle or need trimmed but still have the inspector sticker but never got one that porntip inspected lol.

That got out of the Purdy factory against company policy by the way. When they catch the person smuggling them out they will be prosecuted for theft. But that isn't our concern though is it? Just an interesting side note.
