I use these to apply the final coating on my fishing rods. The soft bristles help eliminate small bubbles that can form during the mixing process. As a bonus, a piece of the hollow handle makes a good tube for tying nail knots. Keep a couple with your fly fishing gear!
I have ordered these brushes numerous times in the past and they work very well. Problem with the last order I received was that each brush was individually packaged and all of them were bent badly, where the brush and the plastic handle of the brush meet. They are probably not useable.
These disposable brishes would be just the ticket if not for poor packaging. About 75% of them arrive with the bristles bent 90 degrees. Great for working around corners. Not so much for applying rod finish. Easy fix. How bout it?
