This product was what wagner put out prior to its paint stick. I have logged many hours painting with this setup. It takes about 1 hour or a gallon of paint to get used to using it, but once you get the hang of it, your on your way. It is very fast, easy, and isn't nearly as messy as a regular roller. The key to the paint around the edging blending in with the rolled section is the paint(better quality looks better).
