The Fooler was aptly named because customers could not believe a throw away brush could be of such high quality. The Fooler is a white bristle brush that's thicker than most. It's designed to hold a lot of finish and does a good job flowing it on. It is, however, a throw away brush and should not be used on fine finishes because it can shed. It is ideal for applying stain, Danish oils, epoxies, resins and bottom paints on boats.
