Default Wooster Wide Boy Hulk

I finally decided to try a 14" roller last week...The only cage they had at the store was the Wooster Sherlock Wide boy hulk...I used a 15 ml Wooster pro-dooz to apply Ben eggshell paint...

It's goes fast on long walls and looks better because you have less lap lines...You can't get close into the corners and there are areas in many rooms that are too tight for a 14" roller...

I used both my 9" and the 14" in separate trays...I used the 9 for the corners and to cross roll above door frames and above/ below window frames...That worked out good...I also used a Wooster 3" roller for even smaller areas...

It was a small house that I worked on,but I could see this roller saving me time in much larger homes...I used a big Wooster tray (with a liner) and didn't use my bucket.

What's better for a 14"?....That's the only cage the paint store carries for that sleeve.

Nothing better besides the Sherlock Wideboy BR036 (the original without cams) Both allow you to roll 1" tight. That is tighter than I see many guys rolling with a 9"

My frame looks almost exactly like that..The only difference I see is that the Hulk has a quick release system as opposed to wing nuts.With a 9" I get right into the corner,actually scraping it lightly {on re-paints} and then I smooth out the streaks on the opposite wall..With newly mudded corners I'm a little more gentle and don't scrape the wall......That said I still cut in all the corners with a 5 second run of the brush top to bottom.
