Used to use 3/4 Super Fabs, loved em...

Now i use 1/2 Whizzfabs.

I definately clean them, they get better the more you use em.

I know alot of painters use 1/2 nap on smooth walls and ceilings but I just cant get myself to try them.To much texture look for me.:eek:On knockdown and orange peel like textures I can see where they would have their place,
I use 1/2" for flat paint An 3/8 for enamels..... Never really noticed the texture cause I grew up with it
Yeah, this is my experience too. I'm also used to working on places that are old plaster ceilings and walls which require a larger nap.

Anyone else use the Purdy Golden Eagle? 98% of what i do is knockdown ceilings and orange peel walls, so I use the 3/4. Rolled out some nice walls with it. Finally maning up while I have my youth and getting an 18" so I'll have to preorder that stuff.
Yeah, I used one the other day. Working at a place that is all old lath and plaster and there were some cracks in the ceiling that needed to be repaired, and a poor patch job someone did in the corner. The 3/4 helped blend everything together
