The handle is a shorter, ergonomic hardwood design for painting in tight spaces. The angled brush head has the same quality components and professional features as the regular line of Purdy XL Glide brushes. Ergonomic thumb grip for superior control. The thumb grip enables the user to apply extra pressure to hold the brush steady in particularly hard-to-reach areas. The newly designed flush ferrule- to-handle fit provides greater comfort and faster cleanup.
