The Roller Sleeve Challenge

The best toller sleeve on the market

For my entire painting career I’ve never found a Roller sleeve that I am truly happy with. Some shed too much lint, some make roller lines, and some fall apart after an hours use. I go through phases with them, for a long time I used the Pro Roller Company dripless sleeve. They are great in some respects but they can leave a ton of roller lines on the wall which gets annoying real fast. I switched to Purdy White Dove sleeves for a while then got annoyed and moved on to the Purdy Microfiber sleeves. I fell in love with them but it was too good to be true and switched yet again to the Sherwin Williams contractor sleeves. Surprisingly the Sherwin Williams sleeves are pretty good but they shed and awful amount of lint and seem to wear out rather quickly.

These are the categories for which they will be rated

  1. Shed Resistance
  2. Paint Pickup / Release
  3. Durability
  4. Ease of Use
  5. Roller Lines
  6. Splatter
  7. Finish Quality
