    "Agree with most purdy brushes are really good as long as no bristles dropping should be good"

    "Hey, I use Harris Trade brushes from Screwfix. They are strong, reliable, relatively easy to clean.

    https://www.screwfix.com/c/decorating/paint-brushes/cat850132#category=cat850132&brand=harris_trade

    This is the link I use on Screwfix to get my brushes. The brushes with an angled edge work brilliant when cutting in and tend to be my brush of choice.

    Best of luck!!"

    "The best way to check if a brush is of a decent quality pull the hairs apart and if you can see the wooden stock through the bristles easily it is not ver good also it needs to feel soft the best brushes in my opinion is Purdy followed by Hamilton I hope this helps"

    "Purdy brush (harris if on budget) painting with a purdy is the diffence between walking bare foot on velvet versus a door matt. Tried many brushes Purdy is the best. Starting price 13 pounds to 26."

    "Depends on what you are using it for?
    If using oil or gloss paint l would use a stiff brush
    If using for emulsion a softer brush type of bristle does no really matter ,l would suggest asset of professional brushes from Screwfix or Toolstation 5 brushes in s set for under £15"

    "if you what a good finish on wood work are walls use a roller as you will not see the brush marks only use a small brush for the edges that are hard to get to with a roller

    hope this helps
