Wouldn't recommend

By gf1981

from Dublin

Comments about Purdy® Pro Extra Glide Paint Brush:

I bought this brush (purdy pro extra stiff) with an understanding it had good capabilities in holding more paint and a better cut in line. Instead it started to split out while applying the paint (vinyl matt) and the cut in line was a disaster. I buy purdy brushes regularly and feel let down by this brush. Are they even hand made anymore?? I'm decorating 17 years and have used all type of brush but this was terrible. I bought a Picasso angled minotaur recently and it's a much better brush! Very annoyed painter and decorator and wouldn't recommend. Gary


Great brush, if only the bristles don't fall apart

By Painter29

from New York, NY

Comments about Purdy® Pro Extra Glide Paint Brush:

I bought about a dozen different brushes for an interior job and most performed well. However 4 of the brushes were made with very poor craftsmanship/material. The bristles started falling out and onto the paint resulting in a waste of precious time. I then decided to clean the brushes to remove the rest of the loose bristles but then after they dried the bristles became brittle and crunchy. Horrible experience that has put me off purdy. I think i ill switch to Wooster since purdys quality has went down.


Some good some bad

Comments about Purdy® Pro Extra Glide Paint Brush:

Love the 3 inch brushes used them for years now. Bought a 2 1/2 the other day and it didn't last the day clumping and it spread apart . Said to say I'm back to a contractors brush for that size

Comments about Purdy® Pro Extra Glide Paint Brush:

The 3 inch is the only brush I use for the last 8 years. I treat mine with wood preserveative and even makes them better.

Best Brush EVER made

By Paintmaster

from East Rutherford, NJ, USA

Comments about Purdy® Pro Extra Glide Paint Brush:

I've been painting for 13 years and this is the first and only brush I'll ever use. I have tried many others and none compare. Lasts long if you take care of them as well. Finish product with this brush is perfection! Thanks Purdy!


Simply the best

By Extremepainter

Comments about Purdy® Pro Extra Glide Paint Brush:

Best brushes I've ever used, and so versatile. Perfect for oil and excellent on stucco also.


It's a good product

By Paintman27

from Alaska

Comments about Purdy® Pro Extra Glide Paint Brush:

Been painting interior/exterior for about 4 years, this line of brushes is very consistent and has never let me down. It's not the GBOAT(greatest brush of all time.) by any means but it gets the job done better than cheapo brushes. It holds paint well, and is easy to clean. To the guy with the frustrated review, try using more paint on your brush each dip or wiping the edges of the brush each dip to prevent it from clumping, also turn down the temperature when applying latex based paints. Good product, would recommend to those who want a quality finish in a reasonable amonut of time.

Bristles clump and separate

By B1gEddy

from Minneapolis, MN, USA

Comments about Purdy® Pro Extra Glide Paint Brush:

Perhaps I am doing something wrong or misapplying the brush, but the bristles clump and separate. Attempted to use this brush with both latex and acrylic paints. Bristle separation makes painting narrow trim pieces especially difficult. Call me frustrated.
