Fantastic, well worth the price!
I've used Wooster's brushes before, but never its stain brushes. Simply put, this is at least as good as anything else I've used from Wooster or any other brush manufacturer. After two hours spent staining my deck with it, I can honestly say it's a new favorite tool. Sure, it's a bit more expensive than a typical paint brush, but this isn't really meant to be used as a standard paint brush. At four inches wide, it's the ideal width for staining 2x4 boards, and with its plastic handle, it remains

light in the hand even after hours of use. No fatigue at all.
A couple things that became readily apparent as I used it were that:
(1) the bristles are very soft, with little elasticity. This aids staining by allowing smooth strokes and preventing splashing or flicking of stain, which is thinner than paint and might be harder to apply with a standard paintbrush. I was amazed that just about everything on the brush ended up right where it was supposed to be.
(2) it doesn't pick up dirt or debris. This may be in part the result of using stain rather than paint, as stain isn't particularly sticky, but the lightweight, thin bristles probably help too.
All in all, I was beyond impressed. I hope I can keep this brush in good shape for years to come, but if not, I'll simply get the same one to replace it.
