Welcome to dickblick
Robert Simmons pioneered a revolution in synthetic brushes, creating a unique blend of filaments that perform so remarkably like pure red sable that they earn the name "White Sable." Simmons's White Sable brushes offer superb point and spring at a fraction of the cost of red sable.
The original synthetic artist's brushes for watercolor and acrylic are still guaranteed for life — just as they were when Robert Simmons introduced them in 1972.
Long and Short Handles — Long handles are recommended for easel style painting, while short handles are recommended for table-top painting where the artwork lies flat, especially with water media.

Soft but not too soft
Comments about Silver Brush Silverwhite Synthetic Short Handle Round Series 1500S:
This brush has a very good feel when I'm painting in oils. I love the smaller brights a little better than the larger brushes, which tend to have a little less spring. However, for the price these are some of the best I've found. I tend to reach for these first to start my painting. I work on panels in oil and these are soft but not too soft.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Silver Brush Silverwhite Synthetic Fan:
I bought several of these for my art room and within a month the paint had peeled off almost all of them. After a couple of months the wood began to split because it was exposed. I wish I had spend the difference and bought a brush of better quality. I didn't expect them to be disposable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought the Round style brush in sizes 0, 00, and 5/0. I was hoping for detail brushes that would hold their shape, point, and softness. I prefer the shorter bristles of these round style brushes compared to a regular liner brush.They have held their shape and snap pretty well after a month's use, but the points require a bit of training after cleaning; and yet, the point is still not as sharp as when they were brand new. While I am satisfied with the quality of these brushes relative to their price, I am still looking for that perfect detail brush. I imagine that these brushes have better shape holding properties in larger sizes. Perhaps my need for perfect points on my brushes will either lead me to a higher price tier or more frequent purchase of new brushes.

It's a nice brush for what your paying. Especially for the bigger brushes. It's a little stiffer than i thought it would be, but it's still very nice. I was just wondering why the brush was dirty when I got it. It had bits od fiber and specks of dust in it. Being a neat freak, I had to clean it several times before I had almost everything out. I don't know if it's for every brush and in the silverwhites you just see little specks of dust, and in the other darker coloured brushes you don't. It holds a nice point and has spring + snap. I may just be being picky but it's a nice brush for the money. I acually bought it becasue it looked atractive! It stains really easily with the permanent colours and ultramarine really stains.The colour dosen't say in the brush the brush just looks blue now, it holds no blue pigment. The natural hair brushes don't stain as bad...
