Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Laura Leaves white fibers during painting
I've never had this problem with rollers in the past, and that includes those that come with the "value pack" type deal at Home Depot. Rolling is supposed to be the fun, easy part of the job after all the prep work. With every one of these rollers I've used (after this 3 pack I'll never buy another Purdy roller), they left white fibers in the paint. This made rolling a tedious and frustrating task, and took double the time and paint. I always get the Behr Marquee for one-coat coverage so that I don't have to do another coat, and these stinkin' rollers defeated the purpose and extra money I spent on the Marquee paint. Even after 2 coats I have to go back over some spots. Never again!

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.

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.

They leave a rough finish on a painted wall by falling apart

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.

Just a piece of junk product. So out of round is unusable. I have two packs of rollers that are trimmed to an oval. Great for washboard walls...

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
