Once you apply rod finish with a fine sable brush its hard to go back to the cheap plastic brushes. These sable brushes are made in the U.S. and feature a flat shaped head, that is perfect for spreading rod finish. One thing you will notice about these sable brushes is that the handle is fairly short. The short handle allows for a steadier grip and is more comfortable in hand over time. Be sure and pick up some brush cleaner to care for the brush. With proper cleaning, these brushes will last many years. At $3.95 a piece they are much cheaper in the long run than their disposable counterparts.
The size 6 brush is the "all purpose" size. This brush is both narrow enough for small wraps and yet has enough surface to apply finish over decals and long ferrule wraps. The shorter handle is fantastic!
