has anyone used one and what did you think of it? Seems like quite a good took for getting into ceiling corners? :-)

Wouldn't even go near a paintpod, apart from them looking terrible and limiting the types of paint usable.
I've seen one of two peoples houses who've used them and to be brutally honest the finish is dreadful, much worse than most DIY jobs.

i agree on the paint pod itself i've heard a few horror stories about them, the edging brush looks quite good though, its a triangular slant cut brush with synthetic bristle like purdys, thought it might be good for cutting in on ceiling corners with emulsion? :scratch:

Won't hold enough emulsion - it would go about 12 inches before redipping.

Purdy Glide Elite Paint Brush 2.5 are good for awkward bits and pieces they hold a bit more paint to.

Otherwise a fresh long haired bristle brush or a purdy elite works fine for me

Noticably better quality than the fat hog 3 inch at the same price
