The newly designed handle is a shorter, ergonomic hardwood design for painting in tight spaces. XL series angled brush head has the same quality components and professional features as the regular line of Purdy XL Glide brushes. Bristles are a blend of Tynex nylon and Orel polyester filaments that are close to naturally flagged bristles as possible. The ergonomic thumb grip enables the user to apply extra pressure to hold the brush steady in particularly hard-to-reach areas. The newly designed flush ferrule-to-handle fit provides greater comfort and faster clean up. May use with any interior or exterior paints.
