Re: Corona Brushes/ Yay Or Nay


Are you kidding?
My favorite!

Firmer than Purdys for sure
If you like a soft bristle, you might not like them

If you like soft, use a Corona Vega or Sabre. A sabre is my favorite trim brush.

I use the 3" Chinex Excaliburs. They are the best brush I have ever used... I have tried them all.

No
There's only one or two Corona 'lines' available to me out here (and those are hard to find)
If they've got a "soft" and "firm" and "extra firm" like Wuss-ter I wouldn't know

Re: Corona Brushes/ Yay Or Nay


saying that coronas are firmer than purdys is like these people asking what to charge,,,,,,

its not a one size fits all paint brush company

they have the biggest selection of brushes ive ever seen,,,,for every task imagineable

wooster and purdy dont even come close to coronas selection of brushes

Re: Corona Brushes/ Yay Or Nay


We now stock the entire Purdy brush line, the entire Corona brush line and by the end of the month, the entire Wooster Brush and Roller line. If there is a brush you would like us to carry, drop me a line. As always, thanks for your support.
