"Fabulous 2" brush to use.
Worth paying for and though I don't do much painting these days this top quality brush is a real pleasure to use.

Purdy Monarch Elite Synthetic
18 Dec 2013
By mick123
, Lancs
"Used these for a few years, excellent for gloss. satin. and varnish. Never ever do they lose filaments, unless its faulty one, and send it back for a replacement which is offered.
I have battered some of mine a bit, keep them clean and combed and they last years, for diy they are expensive, but it shows in the finish.

Lovely brush - Top job
17 Sep 2012
By Outseyuk

"Bought this to varnish floorboards that I had sanded down.
Didn't want my shoddy varnishing to affect the finish after the hard work. Absolutely lovely brush and gave me a great finish to the job. Would buy again and can see why these are recommended"

Rather expensive
8 Mar 2013
By Novicediy
, Barton-uponHumber
"After reading reviews on this brush I thought I'd give it a go as I had a lot of painting and varnishing to do. At first it seemed a pretty good quality brush whilst glossing some doors and skirting board. But after using it a few times I noticed a few bristles starting to come loose onto the gloss paint so was not over impressed. I think this brush is well overpriced and would just go for a medium priced one next time."
