Today I took the Wooster “Alpha” 2 1/2 inch angled sash tool for a test ride. Very nice brush. Stiff enough for nice cutting, yet soft enough to tip off and leave a nice finish on final strokes. The brush loads up well holding plenty of paint nicely without dripping. At the same time, also releases paint on the substrate as it should. Brush feels good in my hand. I really like this brush. I also noticed it seems to clean easy at the end of the day. I defineatly recommend this brush. I give the Wooster “Alpha” Paint Brush 5 stars.
