When I was given a chance to try these out, I jumped at it. I don't get a chance to paint very often, but when I do, I like to use quality supplies and really get into it. These have a lot of different brush styles, making them very versatile. There are also multiple sizes for a few of the brushes, giving you a lot of options when painting. They have kept their shape very well so far and haven't lost bristles like some other brushes that I have had in the past. I have used them with multiple types of paint, and they hold up well under any usage. They feel very durable and I have had no issues with any of them not doing what I need. I expect that these will last for some time and that I will get plenty of use out of them.
