This brush was designed with versatility as its main feature and VERSÀTIL really lives up to its name with exceptional snap, superior absorption and fluid retention. It’s excellent for use both with watercolor and oil /acrylic, allowing artists to create fine details as well as providing superior performance for coloring large areas and backgrounds. Initial feedback from artists and collaborators has been extremely positive and all agree VERSÀTIL is an exciting new alternative to the synthetic brush world.

I really love these brushes... they are superior to the synthetics I've used up till now and I'm very pleased with them (the paintings are much easier to do when the brushes actually deliver as intended) ... having said that... I don't think I'll be going back to the other synthetics I've bought in the past, simply because of how this range have spoiled me with their pleasing performance. I suppose, I'm totally not switching back now. :-)
A mailing mishap: My brushes came in a little more than dented box, but a little loving swishing in cold water to remove the sizing, the bend on the biggest brush slowly reverted back to it's form, and after doing several watercolours the bend in the hairs are gone, so no harm done. I was surprised by its hardiness. the other two brushes weren't damaged, thank goodness.
They've become personal favourites and I look forward to more from this range of brushes by Escoda. I value the quality and ease it gives me when I paint. I've been telling my friends about it, they probably think I became a brush snob by now. I actually want to get a few more to start a proper collection of these beautiful wonderful brushes.

I don't find that these brushes can substitute real Kolinsky sable at all. However, for a synthetic brush, they do perform better than all the other synthetics out there. The craftsmanship of the brush is beautiful as are all Escoda brushes and the value is outstanding. J A (Mexico) on 2 Nov 2014
This brush has quite a stiff, springy feel to it - much more so than my sable rounds. It makes it good for detail. Rob Wigham (Fochabers, United Kingdom) on 12 Apr 2015
