Usually use lambswool rollers - wish I had this time. If you want paint splattered everywhere this is the one for you, but not for me - binned it.

These rollers do hold more paint but that's not the answer to getting the best finish. Used two fo these to emulsion on newly plastered and paper lined walls. Firstly, wash them out well before use - they shed very little pile but best to get this out of your way. In any case, wetting the roller is good practice for a new roller and will improve paint pick-up. Second, they don't throw paint off the roller a lot but they do throw off a slight spray so don't be fooled into not covering up floors or masking. Can be wrapped in cling film between coats and left overnight - don't be tempted to put a second coat on too quickly especially with lining paper. The edges are very soft so take care in corners to avoid pressing through the pile and leaving streaks. They wash out ok but don't mix colours, I found that they do retain the first use paint and even 10 wash/rinses this would bleed through the pile. Finally, I used these with some old 9 inch roller frames and they were difficult to remove so would advise getting the Harris roller frame which clips on /off.

This roller is easy to use, it washes out well and puts an excellent finish to the paint.

This was the 1st time that I have used a microfibre roller, no fibre shedding, good coverage. Wouldn't use anything else now.

I love this roller, rarely d you find a roller that holds the paint so well and you dont end up with paint splahes all over your arm. It gives a nice clean even finish

Bought this as a mid range priced product but it didn't last for painting one wall. Very dissappointed, especially as I lost the receipt so couldn't return. Would not buy again.

It really is excellent too, I have used many roller sleeves but this is the best by far, I washed it out thoroughly before using, dried it off and got stuck in. The first thing to say is that I was amazed at how much paint it holds, no dripping, very even to roll seems to keep putting paint on for ever! I probably covered about a metre each time I charged the roller, The other thing I really liked is the ble writing , I was painting three colours very similar and always knew which roller to pick up! Oh and I should mention that the finish is SO SMOOTH brilliant.

Loads well, covers well and cleans well.
Value for money.
