This is a high-quality brush, which you can expect from Purdy. The brush I bought was a 3 inch XL Swan. It holds plenty of paint and paints smoothly. It is beefy with a thick 3-row filament base by the ferrule (band around bristles/filaments) and then tapers off to a pointy tip. This brush can also be used on outdoor projects as well it is an XL series brush which is a mixture of Dupont Tynex nylon and Orel polyester with solid round tapered (SRT) filaments. These brushes also have a solid well-balanced beaver tail style handle which offers good control and is not too long so you can easily maneuver it even in tighter spaces (this is my opinion others may disagree with which handle is best). This brush will handle thicker paints under hot/humid conditions and still remain stiff enough.

For all-paints (especially heavier-bodied paints) and the ability to use the same brush inside or outside you won't go wrong with this brush or the XL series in general. This brush can go from the interior wall to the deck and do a good job on both. Clean-up with today's fast drying latex paints can be a bit tough, paint does stick a bit to the polyester filaments but if you use a brush comb and are diligent about cleaning it shouldn't have a negative impact on the brush's performance. In general Purdy's clean up well and quickly relative to lessor brushes.

As a side note: If you are going to be using latex paints (exclusively) that are not too thick and strictly for indoor work the Purdy Nylox is likely a better choice it paints ultra-smooth with virtually no brush marks and cleans better than the XL's (has all purple dyed nylon filaments) but it's on the soft side which may not be for everyone.

Too heavy as a whole, doesn't hold much paint. Ended up using a brush half the size to paint the whole exterior of my house. This was a literal waste of money. Great quality brush, just tons of having to go back and dip in the paint.

This IMO is a good brush. The key to keeping this a good brush (for a very long time of many many uses) is to keep your brush clean and use a painter's comb. Once thoroughly cleaned, let the brush "hang dry" in proper shape as it dries. Do let the brush stand on the bristles! All my good brushes hang until dry and the put back into original cover to maintain shape. If using the brush the next day or so, I will clean brush adequately and hang in water with a bit of fabric softener. To accomplish this, I drill a small hole in the center of the brush above the metal band that holds the bristles and run a straight piece of metal (from an old metal clothes hanger) through the brush and let it sit in a plastic container filled my water and fabric softener up to about a 1/3 rd inch of the where the bristles meet the metal band. The container is notched at the top on both sides to accommodate the metal rod and deep enough so the brush doesn't bottom out.

buy Purdy brushes and clean them properly and you'll be close friends every time you paint. tip: after washing add a little fabric softener in water. dip the brush then let it hang dry before putting the cover on and the next time you use it, it will be almost as soft as the day you purchased it.

Purdy makes excellent brushes. They are more expensive but the results are well worth it. The ends of the bristles are split which enables the brush to hold more paint and makes for a finer paint stroke.

I used this brush for painting trim. It was a pleasure to use.

Make sure you clean the brush well after using it. There's lots of information about cleaning brushes on the internet.

I don't have too much use for a 4" brush most of the time. But the 4" Purdy really applies alot of paint smoothly.
As I mentioned in other reviews the bare wood handles I stain and put 5 coats of clear on them. If you clean your brushes properly they will last a long time..

I also store them in the cardboard wrapper. Great Brush, but expensive. I have one of each size offered.

What a great brush. I was a professional painter for several years and when I paint now I must have this brush. Incredible craftsmanship. this brush holds a good amount of paint and allows me to complete even detailed projects in a timely manor. This brush is also very durable. I highly recommend this product.

Second time painting a colored wall agains white ceilings. We hired a professional for exterior paint and interior trim but we couldn't afford to hire him for interior. He recommended this brand of paint brush and boy, what a difference a good brush makes. You definitely get what you pay for. My husband raved about how easy it was to cut in the color with these brushes. And I can see the difference and what a great result they produced.
