Are You Kidding Me!
Far and away the WORST painting product I have ever bought. I spent an hour painting a wall and another hour cleaning all the dripped paint from the floor - the legacy of this "dripless" roller.
And as for being seamless - my wall looked the shunting yard of a major train station. I had to redo the wall with a conventional roller.
This product has since been dispatched to where it belongs - the rubbish bin.
I love it
If I was to read and listen to all the negative reviews I would never have discovered such a wonderful piece of kit.
The large roller atkes about 1 litre of paint. IT took a little wqhile to prime but once it had then it flowed through nice and evenly. The paint layer on the wall is much more even and was ready for the second coat by the time I had the all the wall done with first coat.
Beautiful smooth finish as well.
The cutting in tool I mhave to admit I didn't enjoy as much and just used a brush... maybe need to have another go at that...
Waste of money and time
The roller handle broke after one use. When using, paint comes out thicker at the edges, Smaller roller kept falling off handle. Cheap plastic and a mess to clean up, Even filling is messy and takes several fills for a floor. Lucky it was used for a floor. I cannot imagine using it for wall or ceiling.

Not a good product to get
Paint runner pro yep i have it took me 3 hours to try and cover 3 walls i used the edger the head came of while i was cutting in the side's. So i had emulsion all over even tried tapping in the handle still came off. So i had to clean the mess up again. Ended up using a good old fashioned paint brush to cut the edging in . The roller it took for ever for emulsion to came through walls are all patchy so this morning i have to go over the walls with my trusty hand roller
December 20th 2018 Update: This product is rubbish
I bought this pai...nt runner pro and wished i never did. When i contacted them about a refund they told me to water my emulsion down . So i got i touch with them for a secound time for a refund because the edger head will not stop on and i should not have to water my emulsion down. After trying it again still did not cover the walls 3 walls 3 hours still pachy so when i tried to contact them for the 3rd time. I could not get through i believe they have blocked me after i told them my problems with paint runner pro i have had this product for ten day so i have now put it in the bin £29.99 yep it's in the bin i will not buy anything from high street tv ever again.
It took a long time for the paint to finally work its way through the roller and on to the wall-painted patchy at first. When I went to clean it- it completely fell apart- the fabric came away from the roller, so even if I did want to use it again, I could not- and now I cannot get a hold of the company to get my money back-
BUYER BEWARE- not worth the money
I had to give this 1 star as 0 was not an option. Thought this may be better than using normal roller. Started off OK, followed instructions to the letter. Then bits of flock started coming off on wall and then whole thing came away from frame completely, and paint started pouring out and just about managed to stop the paint from covering the floor. Fortunately it was only an undercoat so no real damage done to surface of the wall. Biggest waste of money ever. Will be going back to good old fashioned roller and tray at least I know that works. May be a little more time consuming but if you want my opinion don't bother with the Paint Runner Pro. Not worth the risk or the money.
Mmm, jury is still out?
Filled it, rolled forever trying to prime it, nipped out and got a traditional roller and tray, got back tried the runner pro, low and behold it was working, eventually.
No splatters used an extension pole to teach high places, I like it, tip fill it and leave a while whilst turning in resting tray to prime, have a coffee!
Worst product ever! WASTE of money
I bought this from a TV commercial.It was on sale so I bought 2 of them so my daughter could use one and help me paint. Arrived with no packing slip or a way to contact seller with any issues, which should have been my first clue. Followed the directions to a T. I wet it with water as the instructions said and the first one fell apart as soon as it got wet. Tried to "stuff" the cloth wrap back into the roller thinking it would work. NOPE paint spilled out BOTH ends of the roller- even the side that didn't fall apart!! Tried the 2nd one....no paint came out at all...followed the directions over and over again....still no paint....WASTE OF MONEY AND NO WAY TO RETURN
Waste of money
Used it for the first time today and was very disappointed .Takes an age to prime .It started leaking almost straight away and the foam has already come away and gone all saggy . As for cleaning it you better warn the neighbours because you are going to be using half the water in the neighbourhood .
Questions & Answers
My paint IS not coming though. Any ideas?
This is the worst product ever designed, even when the paint is full, the end caps holding the sponge comes out and paint starts to leak everywhere. Waste of money buying this product.
Do you just pour the paint into the paint Runner Pro or do you wash it first?
