- The quality of the bristles is very nice. There is a good amount of spring in the bristles, and the brush does keep a very sharp point.
- The capacity of the brush seems to be quite similar to that of the WN s7, not enough to make a difference either way. For the difference in price the capacity is a non issue.
-My only issue with the brush is that I have been using the brush for about a week now and painted 4-6 miniatures with it. I have already had to trim 4-5 stray bristles off of this brush, which makes me worry about its longevity. I purchased the brush for about $25 CAD, whereas my W&N was bout $40. I had the W&N for one full year before it started to get too soft to use, whereas I've only had this brush a week and it's showing signs of wear already.
I will concede that I may have just gotten unlucky with the stray bristles, and after trimming then carefully there is no effect on the usefulness of the paintbrush. It is annoying, however, to have to perform maintenance on a brand new brush which makes me feel like I may only get half of a year out of it.
TL;DR: the brush is adequate quality, I worry it may not last as long as a more expensive alternative (Winsor & Newton S7).
