    I used to use screwfix cheap and cheerful ones for emulsion onto walls, but was never massively impressed with the result.

    A question for the professional decorators - what do you guys use?

    A Pro told me that he uses lambswool, but some others prefer microfibre.
    TBH if you want a very smooth finish and are a beginner I would try a Harris paint pad. That's what I did. It looks immaculate. The problem with rollers if you are a beginner is judging how much load is on the sleeve, a bit of spattler, can't get anyway near corrers and orange peel.
