Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nick Roller leaves fibers in paint
Bought a 3 pack to do the ceiling in my laundry room using Behr ultra ceiling paint. I noticed immediately the roller left many fibers on the ceiling. This roller didn't load the paint well, with sliding and uneven rotation/application. It sure doesn't handle thick ceiling paint well. After a second pass it was leaving so many fibers I threw away Purdy roller, wiped the paint off with a with damp cloth , allowed it to dry, and re-applied the paint with a 3/8 inch nap Wooster roller I had in the garage. No fibers with the Wooster roller, perfect job. Took this Purdy roller as a recommendation of the associate in the paint department for the ceiling application...wish I didn't listen to him. Wasted paint, time, and money with this the Purdy 1/2 inch nap roller.

I have used this particular roller cover many times before and it performed as expected.

Very smooth application. Walls I painted were textured and had no problem with coverage. These covers held paint very well with no paint build up on the ends. Splatter free.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PistolPete When it comes to painting, I will never purchase anything but, Purdy, Rollers, & Brushes!
Several years ago, when I was shopping for a stain/sealer for my wood privacy fence, I was educated by a HD, salesman that spraying the product was NOT the most effective way to apply it. Rather, brushing and rolling it on was much more effective at penetrating the wood fiber, in addition to not wasting it from spraying. I also learned, from a friend of mine, that his visiting Father-in-law, would happily paint his house, BUT, he insisted on Purdy rollers/brushes, otherwise, no-go! I tried them, myself, now that's the product that will ever purchase again! The quality is top-notch, and with proper care, (post-use), they will last a long time. So, the additional cost, is money well spent.
The attached photo, is of the difference of a fence (my side, of my neighbor's fence), which I first, pressure washed, waited, 4 days for it to thoroughly dry, then applied Behr's, Premium Wood Coating. Again, this product is a more expensive purchase, than Thompson's products, but when you take into consideration, that with this product, you will not need to reapply it in 6 months. I have made this mistake before, by purchasing the cheaper product, which resulted in 3-4, more pressure washings, repurchase of more product, (Thompson's), brushes, rollers, and then all of my wasted time. I pressure washed, and painted my fence, (Purdy Roller, yes only 1 roller, and 1 Purdy brush, which I still have/use), 5 years ago this month, and it still looks good, (see attached photo of fencing.

I used packaging tape to prep/remove loose lint routinely from my rollers. After 10 pieces of lo td up tape I gave up . I am SO glad these were returned before the lint ended up all over my hard work. Here is the LAST piece of tape

Can't go wrong with Purdy products. These are my go to roller covers when I paint for customers or in my home. They hold a good amount of paint, don't shed and apply a smooth coat of paint. If you buy cheap roller covers you will regret it, buy these and you won't be sorry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rocketfish Great roller covers
I hadn't used paint rollers like these before and didn't appreciate how great these were until I tried the Home Depot "Best" rollers later when these were out of stock. They don't spatter and they hardly drip, unlike the Home Depot brand which even at their "best" spattered like crazy and dripped a lot. I wish I had known the difference - it would've saved me time scraping paint off my windows! These are worth a few extra bucks!
