Being new to painting, I ordered a variety of round brushes based on the reviews and recommendations in books. This brush was my favorite and my next purchase will include other Series S85 sizes. It is springy and holds its shape very well. It is a pleasure to paint with.

I really love this brand of brushes. If you take care of them, they take care of you.
Rated by: Robin P. in Culver City, CA
The best brush I've found, better than some all-sable brushes, a great combination of natural and synthetic, great spring and paint holding, love the sapphire color too. Want them all!
Rated by: Paul G. in Grand Junction, CO
the sapphire series is a nice blend that holds a fair amount of paint and keeps a sharp springy point. I paint a lot so I am not sure if there is a better, more resilient, longer lasting brush out there. They do a fine job for me and i will continue to purchase this product from

I came across the Robert Simmons brushes at a CAA (College Art Association) convention. I've never had brushes that are so reliable, controllable, easy to take care of. Using them an amateur becomes an expert. Highly recommended

I got six of these brushes for Christmas and I absolutely love them. Using my acrylic paints, they glide across any surface better than any other brush I've tried. It also leaves an even application of paint. Since I received my first sapphire brushes for Christmas, I've bought many more.
Rated by: Shelley S. in Hartford, CT
I absolutely love these brushes. The aplication of the paint was so smooth, and the brushes had a nice spring to them. I've painted better than I've ever painted with any other brush. They are worth the price. I got six brushes for Christmas, and since then I've bought mant more because I love them so much!
