Was given one of these the other day to try. So have Harris simply forgotten how to make brushes? Stinking, awful, floppy, gutless, shapeless, shedding pile of rubbish.

Its 2017 for goodness sake. Brushes shouldn't be shedding filaments these days. :cussing: ::b

I remember Harris super from around 30 years ago. Beaver tailed with plenty of bristle if I remember right, but even then Hamilton and Acorn were the "go to" brushes.

We once tried some blue handled ones with black synthetic. They were totally useless, just scratchy and the bristles went off in all directions.

Makes you wonder who actually tests these brushes and judges them fit for purpose doesn't it?

I've thrown better brushes away.

I tried it in Allcoat the other day on a small outside, and it was barely passible. Shed a few filaments, but today in Rubbol BL Primer, it was utterly useless. how Harris have stayed in business is a mystery. They produce garbage for the most part.

i used to use Harris super brushes twenty years ago..i used to prefer them to hamilton perfection brushes but both brands are not that good anymore.
I'm into Fossa viper trim brushes at the moment.

Acorn! :shock: :shock: :shock: I'd forgotten about them.

Any flavour you like sir, so long as it's natural bristle. From just after that, I remember the first synthetics appeared. They were these hairy nylon things, that made the equally bad water-based gloss look like a ploughed field.

And some think the WB world is second rate? You had to be there at the time of those early offerings (both paints and brushes) to fully appreciate how utterly marvelous modern acrylic/hybrids actually are. :salute:

Used to use the Acorn 27 brushes a lot back in the 90s. They were really popular and a nice brush. Dunno if you can still buy them?

Couple of years back when I was doing a site, I bought some Pioneer Spirit ones. They just look like perfections but were a bit soft for my liking. Used a new one in filter 7 this summer though and it was just the job.
