Rated 2 out of 5Â by MarkMason Not a product I would generally recommend
I purchased these rollers a year ago and they were awesome! I used them to paint my laundry room and thought they were smooth, held paint well, and laid down a nice smooth coat. A few days ago I was getting ready to paint my hallway and returned to buy another package of these rollers. They are horrible. They quality is a serious disappointment. The acrylic fibers are constantly pulling off into the paint and then they roll onto your wall and you've got this problem of what the heck do I do now?! I spent too much time trying to pick of fibers off of my wall. I ended up having to sand everything again and recoat the wall, even though one coat would have been sufficient. What a disappointment.
The only reason I did not rate this a 1 is because there is one possible application for these rollers. You could apply ceiling with them and the white would hide the fibers and you'd never touch the ceiling so you wouldn't ever feel them. That's about the only application I would risk using these rollers for. Great price but really a disappointment for anything other than a ceiling.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by khp247 Not suitable for any painting. So how can they still sell these?
I purchased this product in store as it seemed like a good deal. I didn't check the reviews first on my phone which I should have done.
No matter what paint you use these rollers leave little hairs/lint all over the painted surface. Making it look like you have done a terrible job.
I just spent the good part of an hour taking of the little hairs and will now need to sand down the whole entire job to try and smooth them out and paint it all over again.
I will now buy the absolute best in order to make sure this doesn't happen again.
They should not be allowed to sell these as paint rollers as they are not fit for purpose. Regardless of how much something costs, it should be able to do the job it is intended to do properly.
Worst rollers I have ever used! Please do not buy these.

Leaves lint in paint, not suitable for any type of painting in my humble opinion.

Iv'e use for paint & primer; mostly exterior use. Great product for applications where finish isn't critical such as sheds, barns or a fence. They will tend to leave small bits or roller in the finish. Fit standard 9" roller frame just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by kernel2856 Works fine with a little prep. See tip in review.
My husband and I purchase these roller covers regularly for ourselves and others we do work for. As with ANY paint roller cover, it is always a good idea to use some tape (wrap around your hand with sticky side out) to remove excess lint before the first use. We do this and have never had a problem. We are happy with product, results and value.
