    So now I am both arrogant and rude, if you were to trawl through your posts you would find that particular thread, however you may not be able to see the reply offered by the mods, it may offer you an indication of what you posted and if you look close enough you will also discover that you recieved another reply from another pro dec in the form of of a smiley. Or if you remain in anyway in doubt you could of course ask the mods for either verification or otherwise.

    Now this is now going way off topic and I have no wish to continue the conversation any further, and with a quick glance of the clock I bid you a good evening.

    You are arrogant because you are making an assertion about a product (Harris microfibre sleeve) which you have not even used. When you have used it, come back and offer your opinion, and if you think it is carp, then I will accept that opinion, though I would hope that you explain why you think it is carp so I could learn. I have no problem accepting that a professional will have far more experience than me, and hence that I can learn a lot. But when that professional pontificates on a product they have not even used, and walks over me, then I find it hard to take them seriously. Also your earlier posts were very terse, which gives an impression of arrogance.

    Incidentally, you will see in that other thread that one person (a pro?) repeatedly says 'It's rubbish' when referring to green strippers, and I repeatedly ask that person to explain WHY they think it is rubbish, because repeating the same empty statement is uninformative and childish. I genuinely wanted to know WHY thy thought it was rubbish, given that my own tests found it to work well. They did not do so, but they did repeatedly accuse me (in effect) of fraud i.e. pushing a product in which I have a financial interest (I didn't and I don't).

    I think you cannot cope with the fact that someone who does not have your level of experience could express a valid opinion, and you arrogantly assume you know everything. As I said, I learnt about microfibre rollers from pros on another forum, tried one, and was impressed. I also learnt about PUrdy Glide Elite brushes from pros on another forum, bought one, and I was impressed.

    Come back when you've tried the roller sleeve in question, then I'll take your opinion seriously.

    since reading this post i decided to try out the harris micro fiber roller to see what it was like. i had been put off harris as the products i have seen have been at best woeful. surprisingly enough i have to agree that this roller gave a good finish and i was extremely impressed.

    Well I still dislike the Harris range, whilst I will admit that I have not tried their microfiber sleeves I still regard their products to be diy.

    funnily enough no, i was on a rare visit to B&Q for some garden plants and thought i would buy this roller and see the performance for myself while i was there. used it with some glidden anti mould matt and found it very impressive.

    thanks

    I'm glad to hear that others like the micro-fibre sleeves. I think screwfix do them too and they are cheaper, I've not tried them though.

    As I said earlier, I was told about these by a pro decorator, and the only issue is that they are a real pain to clean, although they can be stored in a plastic bag for a few days ready for re-use.
