Nowhere near as easy to use as advertised
Very disappointed with this product. I started to paint the hallway ceiling with it, using the attachable poles. It felt very unstable, and took at least 10 minutes of rolling before paint appeared.
One of the plastic caps kept falling off (fortunately not the side where the paint went in), and the roller would occasionally come out of the fittings. At one point it fell off, and both caps came off. Fortunately this was close to the end of the job, so no major paint spillage. In the end, I unscrewed the poles, and used a stepladder to finish th...e job. On the plus side, it didn't drip paint, and it was easier than using a normal roller, as I wasn't constantly re-applying paint to it. The most disappointing tool was the Edger. Trying to get started,I felt something snap and it became very wobbly. I am going to have to finish the edges with a brush, after applying masking tape to the edges - something advertised as no longer necessary. I still have the hallway, staircase, and landing to do, but will not be using this. Also, very difficult to clean.
Over the past few years I have purchased at least 8 sets of these paint runners,
Why? Because the first two were wonderful and I was able to paint rooms quickly and get the whole house painted nicely. I even gave friends some as presents. I painted my rental property and my mothers house.
However other than the first two rollers I have found that there has ben a change in materials both with the plastic being hard on the hands, both end caps fall off easily and the roller material used now firstly doesn't allow the paint to soak through easil...
I tried this roller after my wife bought it and ran out of rollers for a job. It wouldn’t roll very well, very streaky and patchy. The opposite end to filling started leaking terribly, tried to fix, just kept leaking. Made a big mess, put it straight in the bin, found an old roller to finish the job. Absolute waist of money an paint.
Did not work for me !
I purchased this item months ago but did not actually try to use it and this lockdown affected us all. I read all the instructions and followed them through using a good quality easy care paint after 5 or 6 minutes attempting to rub the roller up and down on a newspaper virtually no paint would flow through so I gave up and used a normal roller to complete the job. Then last week I attempted to paint my conservatory and thought I would give it another go with a different type of very popular emulsion paint. Once again I followed all the correct...procedures but ended up with the same result. In my opinion this item is not fit for purpose. Following our initial purchase of this item my 82 year old fit and active sister in law also purchased one of these which is still in the box unused so that’s twice this family has bought something which does not work. It’s not worth one star !

Paint Roller - Clever Paintbrush
Absolutely useless the paint from the Flock Edger only came out on the opposite side to the edge where was needed and the flock has ripped and is torn.
The handle on the Edger when connected is loose so paint oozes out on the handle.

Worst product ive ever bought!!!
First of all whilst trying to open the cap for the roller, half of it snapped off in my hand, after fixing that and starting again, it took ages for the paint to come through, thats when i thought nothing else could go wrong, the roller kept jamming and slid across the ceiling instead of rolling. So frustrated with it i just threw it all in the bin. Very disappointed!!!

Do a room in 20 minutes I don't think so. It's heavy when loaded, the finish patchy. Had to use roller and tray to put 2nd coat on. Only plus it has is that it doesn't drip or spray paint about. Took me twice as time as normal. Back to the roller for me. Waste of money.

The paint runner rocks
This cut out so much time by not having to have paint bucket next to me while painting my fence. I completed my entire fence on my property ( just under 1/4 of an acre. It put it on nice and thick so no need for second coat. The paint runner rocks
Great tool. Fast and easy to ise
Its great and easy to use. Not the best compare to the old fashion way to paint. For us, it does the job and it work well. Yes, it does use more paint.
We are in such a rush to get the house painted before we move in. We are so happy to bought 2 set of it.

One of the worst paint tool ever
Bought the roller brush after seeing it on TV and decided to try painting the interior of the house. Roller arrived after a week and started painting the following day, just after using the brush after 15 minutes the sponge on the roller gave away and became loose causing the paint to leak from its side. A complete waste of time and money buying this paint roller. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
