It was easy to use and did a nice job. I would recommend this to a friend. I was using it over a flight of stairs to reach the top of the wall. We attached it to a extension pole.

This paint pad failed immediately on first use - had to replace with an old different brand I was lucky enough to have on hand .... Homed Depot of course handled a refund .... provided a good reminder to have backup supplies on hand when younstart the job

it is hard to keep paint off adjacent surfaces, other than that it's fine.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mermade Falls Apart Quickly!
Chose this paint pad for staining a semi-smooth deck. I was very surprised that it didn't even last 100 square feet! I chose not to buy another one since it was falling apart. My photo shows what it looked like after 45 minutes of applying Thompson Water Seal in red color to a standard floor deck. Not a good product for the price being charged.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Termie Great product for light-duty jobs
This is the second painting pad product from Shur-Line that I've used to paint my deck. The first one was a "deck pad" specifically marketed for decks, while this one is really marketed as an alternative to a paint brush or roller.
Unfortunately, the problem with these products is that they are not durable. Within 20 minutes of painting my deck, the front edge started tearing off, and after an hour, the pad would no longer stay on the holder.
I'm not the only reviewer to mention this, and I think the problem is as follows: this product should be viewed as an alternative to a paint brush, not a roller. Trying to push it quickly up and down a large area, as you do with a roller, tends to tear the pad and pull it off the holder.
On the other hand, I found it to be really good for painting the railings around my deck, as it put down paint smoothly, and holds much more paint than a brush. Basically, it's best for detail work, although it would be even better for that if it were a bit narrower. I could also see this as useful for typical wall painting, because it puts paint down more smoothly than a roller and covers an area so much faster than a brush. Just don't push it too hard on a long extension pole, because it will break.
So to sum it up, while this may look like it will be great for painting decks, don't bother using it for that. It actually was great for 20 minutes, helping me cover boards faster than any tool I've tried so far, but it got torn up in the process. This is a light-duty tool, and it really does work better than a brush or roller for detail work, because it puts an even coat down and doesn't splatter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BikerNana4 Amazing purchase & product for painting
We just purchased a home and are in the midst of painting it. The texture on the walls & ceiling is quite rough making it very difficult to paint straight lines, especially where the wall and ceiling meet together. I decided to try the Shur-Line7-1/2 in. Premium Teflon Painter Pad and it worked like a charm!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PainterGal Works great on areas like medium-small closets, doors
I added this product to my selection of tools in re-painting my entire home. I've used it mostly in the closets and on doors, even though it works great on sections of walls. I tried it on the ceiling but ended up going with a roller because it was too tough on my neck and shoulders using this pad.
It cleans up and holds up well.

Having used the Shur-Line edger in the past and being very impressed with its performance I got one of these pads. It does not lay down an even coat of paint. It starts out very heavy then the center runs out and the edges stay heavy. Ended up with streaks from uneven application. I went and got some roller covers. Now the Shur-Line edger is the greatest thing since the light bulb. Perfect application. I note that the painter pad has a sponge behind the application surface and the edger does not. This might be the problem. The sponge holds a lot of paint but doesn't release it very well.
