Bought a some purdy 6.5inch Colossus roller heads the other day.

What a brilliant bit of kit they are. Ideal for small areas where it's not worth sticking a bigger roller in, but a mini roller is time consuming.

They also fit onto the purdy 4.5 inch arm so only had to buy the heads.

Well worth a punt if you haven't already.

Good that you don't need a separate frame. I have some 7" affairs somewhere in the workshop, but seldom used them. No sure why, as they are a useful size.

They're brilliant. As mentioned before, job I'm on is working around builders so repainting the odd bit here and there.

Dead easy to have a swap and change the heads for different colours or just wash out and start again.

As you know, I'm kinky for rollers. Last site I took on ended up in me cutting in with a 9 inch and using an 18inch on the rest. Short of spraying I don't think I could have misted out houses any quicker.

It was funny you said that. As I was reading it, Scouting for girls came on the radio. Lol

The problem I have with them is that I use a Pelican paint 'bucket' and anything bigger than a 4" mini roller won't fit, so I've never actually used mine..

Agree, they are a bit big.

I've got a few mini scuttles I use with mine.
